DO YOUR BEST WORK.
Boost your AutoCAD performance by 3x over integrated graphics with NVIDIA® Quadro® GPUs1. You can work more quickly, explore your ideas, and still get your projects done faster. With 1 GB of built-in memory in the Quadro 2000, NVIDIA Quadro GPUs can handle even the most complex data sets with superior scalability for your evolving visualisation needs.
NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics provide leading performance that also lets you easily use the other applications in the AutoCAD Design Suite—such as 3ds Max—with complete confidence. This is something integrated just can’t handle.
AUTOCAD BENCHMARK RESULTS1
CREATE FAST PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERS
With 3ds Max in your suite, creating stunning photorealistic renderings for client reviews or marketing materials is always faster and easier. 3ds Max also takes full advantage of your graphics card, so what you use can greatly affect how fast the renders will finish. Why wait overnight and catch mistakes too late?
Now, you can render up to 9x faster in 3ds Max using NVIDIA Maximus technology2 while still working in all your other apps. This makes creating expensive and time-consuming physical prototypes a thing of the past.

NVIEW MULTI-DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY
AutoCAD professionals can efficiently leverage multiple displays using nView® desktop and application management features that are unique to Quadro graphics solutions. nView provides a robust set of tools to efficiently set up multiple monitors, manage a variety of different desktops, and run multiple windows and applications simultaneously to maximize productivity. Key features include:
Extend the Windows taskbar across multiple displays so that each taskbar contains only the programs that are open on that display.
Divide monitors into grids for more efficient use of larger screen real estate.
Create, customize, and switch between different desktops for specific jobs, to reduce on-screen "clutter".

BUILT FOR PROFESSIONALS
Autodesk and NVIDIA collaborate closely on product development to deliver a reliable user experience, so everything will perform just the way you expect from day one. Quadro graphics solutions are engineered, built, and tested by NVIDIA to provide you with the performance and reliability you need, whenever you need it. And with a three-year warranty, plus direct support from NVIDIA, Quadro solutions ensure the highest standards of quality, delivering industry-leading performance, capabilities, and reliability.
1 - AutoCAD performance test: NVIDIA benchmark consists of a collection of models manipulated under typical usage in AutoCAD 2013 with wireframe, shaded, and x-ray display modes turned on. The test is with a Xeon E3-1245 CPU, 4GB RAM, Intel Integrated P4000 and the specified Quadro graphics card running Windows 7 64bit.
2 - 3ds Max Benchmarks: Test consists of a collection of hard surface objects rendered outdoors in 3ds Max with iray 1.2 comparing an NVIDIA Tesla C2075 and the indicated Quadro GPU with the CPU relative to an Intel 3ghz x5570 Xeon CPU with 8 cores rendering. ECC has been turned off for all GPUs. Values shown are percent increase in render speed relative to CPU.
