Increased performance and real time interaction with complex 3D designs

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Nvidia's Quadro line of professional solutions is now optimised for Autodesk AutoCAD 2010. Coupling graphics capabilities with specially built AutoCAD performance drivers, Quadro processors enable design professionals to create and interact with more complex 3D product designs.

Eric Stover, AutoCAD product line manager, Autodesk, said: "By leveraging the advanced features and massively parallel processing capabilities of Nvidia Quadro professional class GPUs, it's possible for our customers to experience a significant performance boost. AutoCAD 2010 has been enhanced with 3D modelling features and functionality and the unprecedented 3D visual quality that results from using Quadro GPUs will give designers of all types a strong professional advantage."

According to Stover, Quadro processors offer excellent price performance for workstation graphics with an optimal blend of quality, precision and performance. Quadro solutions are engineered, built and tested by Nvidia to achieve premium quality standards.

The processors enable up to a 5X performance increase in '3D Hidden' visual style and faster interactive manipulation of models in 'Conceptual' and 'Realistic' visual styles. They enable manipulation and interaction with large scale models while working at the maximum visual quality that is necessary to render high-polygon 3D models precisely.

Quadro processors offer higher image quality without sacrificing performance with AutoCAD smooth lines display, a Quadro specific feature available through Nvidia's AutoCAD performance driver.

The new performance drivers for AutoCAD 2010 are free and available for download from Nvidia's Web site: The drivers are available as either a standalone package or integrated in the latest graphics driver available from Nvidia.
