New NVIDIA RTX GPUs Power Next Generation of Workstations and PCs for Millions of Artists, Designers, Engineers and Virtual Desktop Users
SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GTC -- NVIDIA today announced a range of eight new NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPUs for next-generation laptops, desktops and servers that make it possible for professionals to work from wherever they choose, without sacrificing quality or time.
Using the new NVIDIA RTX™ GPUs, artists can create dazzling 3D scenes, designers can iterate on stunning building architecture in real time, and engineers can create groundbreaking products on any system.
“Hybrid work is the new normal,” said Bob Pette, vice president of Professional Visualization at NVIDIA. “RTX GPUs, based on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, provide the performance for demanding workloads from any device so people can be productive from wherever they need to work.”
For desktops, the new NVIDIA RTX A5000 and NVIDIA RTX A4000 GPUs feature new RT Cores, Tensor Cores and CUDA® cores to speed AI, graphics and real-time rendering up to 2x faster than previous generations.
For professionals on the go needing thin and light devices, the new NVIDIA RTX A2000, NVIDIA RTX A3000, RTX A4000 and RTX A5000 laptop GPUs deliver accelerated performance without compromising mobility. They include the latest generations of Max-Q and RTX technologies and are backed by the NVIDIA Studio™ ecosystem, which includes exclusive driver technology that enhances creative apps for optimal levels of performance and reliability.
For the data center, there are the new NVIDIA A10 GPU and A16 GPU. The A10 provides up to 2.5x the virtual workstation performance of the previous generation for designers and engineers, while the A16 GPU provides up to 2x user density with lower total cost of ownership and an enhanced virtual desktop infrastructure experience over the previous generation.
Combined with NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) and NVIDIA Virtual PC (vPC) software, the A10 and A16 GPUs deliver more power, memory and speed to boost any workflow, from graphics and AI to VDI, so users can focus more time on working efficiently and productively.
“This new NVIDIA Ampere GPU microarchitecture is a huge leap forward. I was shocked by the performance gain I saw with the NVIDIA RTX A5000 versus the equivalent model previous generation RTX when running applications such as Chaos Vantage and NVIDIA Omniverse,” said Robert Cervellione, studio leader of Design Technology at Woods Bagot. “It’s clear the NVIDIA RTX A5000 professional GPU was designed for this intensive multi-tasking compared to game-level cards.”
Polaris, a manufacturer of motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATV and electric vehicles, is also using the RTX A5000.
“Speed is everything when we need to evaluate new concepts for the most adventurous vehcles, and the NVIDIA RTX A5000 really delivers what we need,” said Erick Green, 3D/CGI lead at Polaris. “The basic viewport rendering is incredibly fast in Octane Render — 5x faster — and unlocks things we couldn’t have even tried before.”
“At Important Looking Pirates, we’re constantly pushing creative boundaries, and breakthrough technology is the great enabler,” said Ola Björling, producer of Virtual Production & Real-Time Graphics at Important Looking Pirates. “With the RTX A5000 powering NVIDIA Omniverse, we’re seeing high-end cinematic results in real time that used to take hours per frame.”
