SIGGRAPH - NVIDIA today announced that 25 million artists and designers can now easily upgrade the capability of their notebooks to support new workflows such as video editing, interactive rendering, VR content creation, AI development and more.
Creative professionals with underpowered graphics can now harness the power of NVIDIA TITAN X or NVIDIA Quadro® graphics cards through an external GPU (eGPU) chassis and dramatically boost the performance of their applications.
"While more computer power than ever is needed for VR, photoreal rendering and AI workflows, mobile systems are getting thinner and lighter, with limited performance and memory," says Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Visualization, NVIDIA. "Our eGPUs can now solve this problem, enabling creatives to plug into our most capable GPUs so they can do their best work on the most graphically demanding applications."
Quadro graphics will be available through qualified eGPU partners for those who use high-end content-creation applications for animation, color grading and rendering as well as CAD and simulation apps. The qualification process ensures users of compatibility, reliability and performance of their Quadro eGPU solution.
To ensure prosumers enjoy great performance with applications such as Autodesk Maya and Adobe® Premier Pro, NVIDIA is also releasing a new performance driver for TITAN X to make it faster than ever before.
Available starting in September, Quadro eGPU solutions will be available through qualified partners such as Bizon, One Stop Systems/Magma and Sonnet with more to come.
NVIDIA is at the SIGGRAPH ACM computer graphics conference, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, demonstrating new capabilities and performance enhancements that can be achieved with Titan Xp drivers and new qualified Quadro eGPU solutions. Stop by booth #403 for a hands-on demo.
