NVIDIA has today announced the expansion of its award-winning line of NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics solutions with NVIDIA Quadro 600 and Quadro 2000 GPUs which are based on the NVIDIA Fermi architecture.
The NVIDIA Quadro 2000 with 192 NVIDIA CUDA processing cores is a mid-range GPU while the NVIDIA Quadro 600 with 96 CUDA processor cores is a entry-level graphics solutions. Both these GPU cards now bring the computational and visualization benefits of the breakthrough Fermi architecture to all segments of the market.
The NVIDIA Quadro 2000 GPU delivers 1.5 times the geometry performance of the previous Quadro graphics processing unit (GPU) mid-range solution and utilizes the new NVIDIA Scalable Geometry Engine technology to deliver dramatically higher performance across leading CAD and DCC applications such as SolidWorks and Autodesk 3ds Max.
The new entry-level NVIDIA Quadro 600 GPU is a flexible half height solution that features the industry’s best performance per watt for applications such as Autodesk AutoCAD 2011, and empowers professional designers to interact with models that are twice the size and complexity compared to previous entry-level solutions.
Both the NVIDIA Quadro 2000 and entry-level Quadro 600 GPUs feature 1GB DDR3 video graphics memory and are compatible with the new NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro active shutter-glasses solution, providing powerful visualization and analysis in an immersive, high-quality stereoscopic 3D experience.
Software companies such as Adobe, Autodesk, Dassault Systemes and SolidWorks consistently certify NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics solutions for their users whose livelihoods depend on them.
The NVIDIA Quadro 2000 and Quadro 600 GPUs are built on industry standards, including OpenGL 4.1, DirectX 11, Shader Model 5.0, DirectCompute and OpenCL.
These NVIDIA Fermi architecture based GPUs also leverage the NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing architecture that enables dramatic increases in computing performance. Featuring 30-bit color fidelity (10-bits per color), these Quadro solutions enable the display of billions of color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range.
Both the NVIDIA Quadro 2000 GPU and NVIDIA Quadro 600 GPU are PCI Express 2.0 compliant, and feature an ultra-quiet design, with tailored acoustics for an ultra-quiet desktop environment.
Both the NVIDIA Quadro 2000 GPU and NVIDIA Quadro 600 GPU also leverages the CUDA parallel processing architecture and NVIDIA Application Acceleration Engines to enable the world’s fastest performance across a broad range of applications.
Additionally, both the NVIDIA Quadro 2000 GPU and NVIDIA Quadro 600 GPU feature NVIDIA Mosaic Technology, which will enable any application to utilize one or more Quadro professional graphics solutions to scale across up to eight high-resolution displays.
Whether the application is CATIA, 3ds Max or PowerPoint or Google Earth, users just simply hit the Maximize button and the application will seamlessly span across all connected displays.
Price and Availability
The new NVIDIA Fermi architecture based Quadro 2000 is available for $599 or about Rs. 26,680 and entry-level NVIDIA Quadro 600 comes for $199 or Rs. 8,865 and are also available from leading global workstation manufacturers, including Dell, HP and Lenovo.
