DO YOUR BEST WORK FASTER
The latest NVIDIA® Quadro® graphics cards take advantage of NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture to provide exceptional performance for AutoCAD®. This means you can now work more quickly, explore more ideas, and still get your projects done faster.
NVIDIA 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 graphics just can’t handle.
AUTODESK AUTOCAD BENCHMARK RESULTS1
Create fast photorealistic renders
3ds Max in your design suite makes creating stunning photorealistic renderings for client reviews or marketing materials faster and easier. Plus, it takes full advantage of your
graphics card, so your renders will finish faster. Why wait overnight and catch mistakes too late?
Now, you can render up to 14x faster in 3ds Max using NVIDIA Multi-GPU (Maximus®) technology while still working in all your other apps. This enables you to reduce, or in some cases eliminate, the number of expensive and time-consuming physical prototypes needed.
Empower more users with NVIDIA GRID™
The NVIDIA GRID portfolio of technologies leverages the power of the GPU to deliver 3D applications over the network for a native PC experience. Choose from two options to match your specific IT infrastructure, bringing the Autodesk Product Design Suite to more users, in more places:
With either NVIDIA GRID option, Autodesk Product Design Suite users can enjoy the same highly responsive experience they get at their desk—from any device, anywhere.

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".
