Creo Parametric 2.0 capabilities are fully utilized when you use NVIDIA Quadro professional GPUs

PTC has raised the bar with the introduction of Creo Parametric 2.0. With improved GPU-accelerated performance and a variety of new features including anti-aliasing, better lighting and an enhanced shaded-with-edges mode, you’ll need NVIDIA® Quadro® GPUs to take full advantage of the new capabilities. Designers and engineers can experience a new level of performance previously unseen in Pro/ENGINEER.


NVIDIA Quadro GPUs free up CPU resources to do the work they’re best suited for – I/O, running the operating system and multi-tasking. With built-in memory and dedicated graphics processing, Quadro professional graphics deliver rich, fully-interactive performance. With up to 4X performance gains for Creo 2 your ideas can be created faster than ever before.

* Benchmarks obtained using identical tests on six different models in Creo Parametric 2.0 and Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0, comparing the average run time in shaded mode. System Specification: Xeon 3.3Ghz (w5590). X58 chipset w/24GB RAM. Win7-SP1 x64. Driver 296.35. 1920x1200. vSync forced off. 0x FSAA.

Image Quality

Quadro GPU solutions with Creo Parametric 2.0 eliminates visual artifacts so you can work with the most intricate design details - without sacrificing performance. See your designs with smooth, accurate edges as Quadro full-scene anti-aliasing (up to 32x) removes jagged edges in real-time. Quadro with Creo Parametric’s new shaded-with-edges mode provide insight into your designs without sacrificing performance.


NVIDIA Maximus

Workstations with the new PTC certified NVIDIA® Maximus™ technology – combining Quadro and Tesla GPUs - provides Creo users with even greater graphics and computational performance than ever before. Engineers and designers can take advantage of incredibly fast and cost efficient work flows to perform simultaneous CAE simulations on ANSYS or photorealistic rendering with RTT DeltaPix or Bunkspeed Pro Suite - while still working on their designs.

Visualize and simulate at the same time on a single system with NVIDIA Maximus.



The experience of traditional VDI is sub-par when compared to what users have come to expect from their native PC. NVIDIA® GRID™ solves this issue by adding a fully virtualized GPU board to the data center. With NVIDIA GRID, enterprise users can enjoy highly responsive windows, multimedia playback, and all of the applications they demand. And IT professionals can reduce costs by increasing their consolidation ratios. So, finally, organizations of all sizes can take advantage of the power of GPU-VDI to deliver higher throughout to more users per server - from any device, anywhere, anytime.

NVIDIA GRID is the first virtualized GPU that delivers a true PC experience from the cloud.



As always, all NVIDIA professional graphics solutions are certified and tested by PTC and NVIDIA, so they'll work perfectly from day one. Use Quadro certified drivers for PTC Creo Parametric for performance and stability you can depend on.
