NVIDIA Unveils Fermi-Class Quadro GPUs

NVIDIA has revealed its new range of Fermi-based Quadro GPUs that the company says deliver performance that is up to five times faster for 3D applications and up to eight times faster for computational simulation. The Quadro Plex 7000 Array is a complete system solution capable of displaying up to 36 megapixels across eight displays, whereas the Quadro 6000, Quadro 5000 and Quadro 4000 GPUs are aimed at desktops and workstations. They are all compatible with NVIDIA’s new 3D Vision Pro active-shutter glasses solution, incorporate the new NVIDIA Scalable Geometry Engine and take advantage of NVIDIA Application Acceleration Engines (AXE).
While the new Quadro GPUs are built on industry standards – including OpenGL 4.1, DirectX 11, DirectCompute and OpenCL – they also leverage technologies that are unique to NVIDIA, such as the company's portfolio of Application Acceleration Engines (AXE) and NVIDIA CUDA parallel processing architecture. NVIDIA says this allows software developers to create and deliver the next-generation of professional applications that incorporate compute-intensive tasks, such as ray tracing, physics simulation, computational fluid dynamics and real-time video effects processing. The NVIDIA Quadro Plex 7000 array, and Quadro 6000, Quadro 5000 and Quadro 4000 GPUs feature the new NVIDIA Scalable Geometry Engines and leverage NVIDIA Application Acceleration Engines (AXE) which NIVIDIA says enables the world's fastest performance across a broad range of CAD, DCC and visualization applications. Meanwhile, the Quadro 6000 is rated at an impressive 1.3 billion triangles per second in raw performance, enabling users to interactively work with models and scenes that are five times more complex than previously possible.
