NVIDIA Multi-GPU Technology

What are the benefits of a professional multi-GPU system?

NVIDIA Multi-GPU Technology (NVIDIA® Maximus®) leverages multiple professional graphics processing units (GPUs) to intelligently scale the performance of your application and dramatically speed up your workflow. This delivers significant business impact across industries such as Manufacturing, Media and Entertainment, and Energy Exploration.

  • Substantial time savings — A multi-GPU system helps address the pressures of delivering a high-quality product to market more quickly by providing ultra-fast processing of your computations, renderings, and other computational and visually intensive projects.
  • Multiple iterations — The ability to revise your product multiple times in a resource- and time-constrained environment will lead to a better end result. Completing each iteration of your automobile, animated movie, or seismic data processing faster, leads to additional refinements.

A multi-GPU system also offers tremendous flexibility in its implementation, whether you're using a traditional desktop workstation or an NVDIA GRID™-powered virtualized server. Multiple GPUs help optimize your workflow across a range of professional applications with performance increases of up to:

* Relative to CPU
** Relative to NVIDIA Quadro® K600

Traditional Maximus Workstation vs a Maximus Workstation, Cubix expander with multiple GPUs and a virtualised (VCA) solution.

Based on the NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture, a multi-GPU system provides more than just performance gains. It also gives you the freedom to run your applications with full features and effects enabled. This includes real-time ray tracing and global illumination.
