NVIDIA's New Professional GPU Lineup Places Quadro at Center of Visual 
Computing Workflows 
VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 --  SIGGRAPH -- NVIDIA
(NASDAQ: NVDA) today unveiled its next generation of NVIDIA(R)
Quadro(R) GPUs -- providing new tools and technologies to meet the
visual computing needs of the world's leading designers, artists and
The new lineup delivers an enterprise-grade visual computing platform
with up to twice the application performance and data-handling
capability of the previous generation. It reflects NVIDIA's extensive
work with leading customers across industries to gain greater insight
into their growing requirements to work with more complex models and
higher-resolution images; to incorporate cloud-based resources; and
to access work remotely, often on mobile devices. 
"The next generation of Quadro GPUs not only dramatically increases
graphics and compute performance to handle huge data sets. It extends
the concept of visual computing from a graphics card in a workstation
to a connected environment," said Jeff Brown, vice president of
Professional Visualization at NVIDIA. "The new Quadro lineup lets
users interact with their designs or data locally on a workstation,
remotely on a mobile device or in tandem with cloud-based services."  
NVIDIA Quadro GPUs are already the overwhelming choice of leading
creative and design professionals, who depend on it for their most
important work. For the past six years running, every film nominated
for the Academy Award(R) for Best Visual Effects was made with Quadro
technology. And Quadro is the choice of essentially every automotive
designer worldwide. 
"From increased efficiency to new workflow models, the results we've
achieved with the latest Quadro GPUs are fundamental to our future,"
said Steve MacPherson, chief technology officer at Framestore. "The
world's leading brands and studios trust Framestore because of our
history of creativity and successful delivery, which depends on a
technology infrastructure and talent base that has no boundaries in
terms of realizing a creative vision. NVIDIA Quadro is an essential
component to helping us keep our edge, and gives us the reassurance
of knowing the graphics technology our artists rely on has been
developed specifically for professional users with the highest
standards of reliability and compatibility."  
Benefits of New Quadro GPUs
 The new generation of Quadro GPUs -- the
K5200, K4200, K2200, K620 and K420 -- enables users to:  

--  Interact with data sets or designs up to twice the size handled by
    previous generations.
--  Remotely interact with graphics applications from a Quadro-based
    workstation from essentially any device, including PCs, Macs and
--  Run major applications -- such as Adobe(R) CC, Autodesk Design
    Suite and Dassault Systemes SOLIDWORKS 2014 -- on average 40
    percent faster than with previous Quadro cards.
--  Switch effortlessly from local GPU rendering to cloud-based offerings
    using NVIDIA Iray(R) rendering.

Positive Early Reaction
 "Big data, the cloud and mobile connectivity
represent the most important issues that enterprises are facing
today. New approaches such as those NVIDIA is taking will be required
for businesses to effectively manage these converging trends."
Peddie, Jon Peddie Research 
"A significant proportion of PSA's design and production engineering
workforce operates remotely at any one time. Working with the power
of the NVIDIA Quadro K2200, our teams can access the performance and
stability they need from anywhere in the world. This will greatly
streamline collaborative processes like vehicle assembly reviews,
enabling our engineers to take tomorrow's most innovative new
vehicles into production more quickly and efficiently." 
Gonzalez, expert in graphics technology and 3D imaging, PSA Peugeot
"The next-gen NVIDIA Quadro GPU allows for fast and efficient
editing. It's already been put to the test in the offline edit of
Gone Girl -- the latest blockbuster feature edited entirely in Adobe
Premiere(R) Pro CC. Adobe video tools and the latest NVIDIA Quadro
GPUs give filmmakers the creative power they need to render large
amounts of data in the film and post-production industry." 
Williams, director of strategic alliances, Adobe 
"Precision workstation systems deliver outstanding performance and
reliability, helping our customers meet the increasing demands of
today's data-intensive and resource-exhaustive workloads. NVIDIA
truly understands the features our customers need the most to produce
their most creative and inspired work. The new line of NVIDIA Quadro
GPUs provides the performance and features our users require."  
-Andy Rhodes, executive director and general manager, Dell Precision
workstations worldwide 
"Performance and rich visual fidelity, when developing everything
from running shoes to race cars, is an HP workstation user mandate.
NVIDIA's new Quadro line of products with advanced photorealistic
rendering and flexible multi-GPU configurations gives users the
ultimate creative freedom." 
 -Jim Zafarana, vice president and
general manager, Commercial Solutions Business Unit, HP 
"We're always excited to work with NVIDIA to deliver the most
cutting-edge solutions to our customers. NVIDIA understands how our
users interact, create and collaborate. NVIDIA Quadro graphics and
Tesla compute cards combined with ThinkStation P Series workstations
empower our customers to push the limits of what is possible. With up
to double the speed and memory and seamless connectivity to
cloud-based services, the new Quadro lineup delivers the capabilities
our users require most." 
 -Victor Rios, vice president and general
manager, Workstation Business Unit, Lenovo 
Quadro GPU's accelerate more than 100 CUDA(R) architecture, DirectX,
OpenCL and OpenGL applications. The latest Quadro GPU lineup will
ship beginning this fall from NVIDIA workstation OEMs, including HP,
Dell, Lenovo and other major workstation providers; from systems
integrators, including BOXX Technologies and Supermicro; and from
authorized distribution partners, including PNY Technologies in North
America and Europe, ELSA and Ryoyo in Japan, and Leadtek in Asia
