DesignStation & Quadro Fermi features Print
March 2011

Compucon DesignStation is designed to brings a new level of computational and visualization capabilities for engineers, designers and animators.
The Quadro GPU, supported by the NVIDIA Fermi Architecture will accelerate workflows and performance of a range of professional and engineering applications by tapping into the parallel processing capabilities delivered by Fermi and Cuda allowing performance to gain up to 8X faster when running computationally intensive applications such as ray tracing, video processing and computational fluid dynamics. For high-precision, data-sensitive applications, Quadro are the only professional graphics solution with ECC memory and fast double precision capabilities to ensure the accuracy and fidelity of your results. From medical imaging to structural analysis applications, data integrity and precision is assured, without sacrificing performance.

The newest NVIDIA Quadro professional solutions are true technological breakthroughs, delivering up to 5X faster performance across a broad range of design, animation and video applications. Built on the innovative NVIDIA Fermi architecture, the latest Quadro offerings are the first professional-class GPUs to integrate high performance computing capabilities with advanced visualization techniques, transforming modern workflows.
The result is a visual supercomputer right at your desk, capable of streamlining the way you work every day. Featuring new Scalable Geometry Engine technology, Quadro can deliver an unheard of 1.3 billion triangles per second with the Quadro 6000, shattering previous 3D graphics limitations.

Compucon DesignStation allows multi-task applications (Autodesk 3dsmax, Maya, Mudbox, Maxwell, Cinema4D, Softimage, Lightwave, Rhino, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, CAD/CAM/CAE, Rendering, Analysis, etc) to run faster, unleashing new levels of creativity for leading designers & professional 3D artists. Intricate 3D projects now become easier, with complex digital media workflows developing into effortless creative ventures. In addition, professional video applications along with technical computing language tools to benefit the features such as fast double precision from Quadro Fermi.
