So now through SolidWorks World 2013, we’ll be posting a series of blog entries about some of the partners you might think about checking out, and the people who will be representing them. Today we hear from NVIDIA.


NV_Logo_133x88Tell us about NVIDIA

NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) awakened the world to the power of computer graphics when it invented the GPU in 1999. Since  then, it has consistently set new standards in visual computing with breathtaking, interactive graphics available on devices ranging from tablets and portable media players to notebooks and workstations. NVIDIA’s expertise in programmable GPUs has led to breakthroughs in parallel processing which make supercomputing inexpensive and widely accessible. The Company holds more than 1,600 patents worldwide, including ones covering designs and insights that are essential to modern computing.

How can NVIDIA products help make a SolidWorks user’s life easier?

NVIDIA® Quadro® professional graphics allow you to take full advantage of SolidWorks.  By enabling RealView and full scene antialiasing (FSAA),
Quadro allows for more realistic, higher quality images. Zoom, rotate and manipulate large assemblies in real-time, without compromising image details or your standards.  The close collaboration on product development between SolidWorks and NVIDIA also assures you of the most stable and reliable user experience.

Why should SolidWorks World attendees visit your booth?

For the first time at SolidWorks World, NVIDIA and Dell have teamed up to bring you the GPU Genius™ Bar.  Stop by Dell’s booth for advice on  choosing the right GPU for how you use Solidworks or to ask NVIDIA experts about graphics questions.  You’ll also find NVIDIA-powered demos in Lenovo’s booth that will show you how you can realize up to 4x performance gains1 to make your day at the office go by that much faster!  And make sure to attend the NVIDIA talk, SolidWorks and Hardware: Find Out What Does and Doesn’t Matter, happening January 22 at 10:30am.
