DESIGN WITHOUT LIMITATIONS.

NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics cards provide fast, responsive experiences for Inventor, as well as all the other applications in the Product Design Suite. This means you can now dial up the complexity of your designs, visualise every angle faster, and work out issues earlier in the design cycle.

The latest NVIDIA® Quadro® GPUs provide almost 3x faster performance1 over previous generations in Inventor, so you can explore all your ideas and still get your projects done on time. With 2 GB of built-in memory in the Quadro 4000, the NVIDIA GPUs recommended for Inventor can handle just about any amount of work you throw at them.

QUICKLY PREPARE FOR DESIGN REVIEWS

 

NVIDIA lets you take advantage of Showcase in the Product Design Suite for reviews and product walk-throughs. As you can see, the more graphics horsepower you have, the faster Showcase will run. So you no longer need to worry if you have enough time to set up that perfect scene.

 

CREATE FAST PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERS

 

3ds Max in your suite gives you the power to create stunning photorealistic renderings for client reviews or marketing materials much faster. Because 3ds Max also takes full advantage of your graphics card, what you use can greatly affect how fast the renders will finish. So, why wait overnight and catch mistakes after it’s too late?

Now, you can render up to 9x faster in 3ds Max using NVIDIA Maximus technology while still working in all your other apps. This means creating expensive and time-consuming physical prototypes is finally a thing of the past.

1 - Inventor performance test: NVIDIA benchmark consists of a collection of models manipulated under typical usage in Inventor 2013 with Shaded and Shaded with Edges display modes turned on. The test is with a Xeon E3-1245 CPU, 4GB RAM, and the specified Quadro graphics card running Windows 7 64bit.

2 - Showcase performance test: NVIDIA benchmark consists of a collection of user models from AutoCAD and Inventor manipulated under typical usage in Showcase 2013. The test is with a Xeon E3-1245 CPU, 4GB RAM, Intel Integrated P4000 and the specified Quadro graphics card running Windows 7 64bit.

3 - 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.
