Nvidia to power industry supercomputers with new Quadro products

Nvidia offers new Quadro products for use across various industry supercomputers.

By Hannah Williams

Nvidia has introduced a range of new Quadro products for its Pascal architecture. The products are to transform desktop workstations into supercomputers with capabilities designed for professional workflows.

These workflows are to be spread across design, engineering and all other areas that are evolving rapidly to meet the exponential in data size and complexity that comes with photorealism, virtual reality, and deep learning technologies.

In order for enterprises to benefit from the opportunities, Nvidia’s Quadro Pascal-based lineup provides an enterprise-grade visual computing platform which streamlines design and simulation workflows, including up to twice the performance of the previous generation and ultra-fast memory.

Quadro P600The new generation of its Quadro Pascal-based GPUs along with the GP100, P4000, P2000, P1000, P600 and P400 enable a wide selection of engineers, designers, researchers and artists across industries to benefit from the visual computing platform.

This enables users to unify simulation, HPC, rendering and design with the use of the GP100 which is said to combine double precision performance with 16GB of high-bandwidth memory.

There is also an opportunity to explore deep learning as the same GP100 provides over 20 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point precision computing, making it an ideal development platform to enable deep learning in Windows and Linux environments.

Users are also able to incorporate VR into design and simulation workflows, reap the benefits of photorealistic design, create expansive visual workspaces and also build massive digital signage configurations cost effectively, the company claims.

Bob Pette, Vice president of Professional Visualisation, Nvidia said: “Professional workflows are now infused with artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and photorealism, creating new challenges for our most demanding users.”

The company previously collaborated with IBM on a new deep learning tool featuring its NVLink interconnect technology, to enable computers to think and learn more like humans.

The Nvidia Quadro will be powering demanding CAD workflows from the physical-based to virtual reality. Its products will be available from March 2017 from leading workstation OEMs, such as Dell, HP, Lenovo and Fujitsu.
