NVIDIA Smashes Visual Compute Density Record
NVIDIA SMASHES VISUAL COMPUTE DENSITY RECORD WITH NEW GPU SERVER
NVIDIA Quadro Plex VCS Server Combines Four Quadro GPUs in a Standard 1U Server Configuration for Remote Graphics and Offline Rendering Applications
SIGGRAPH 2007 — SAN DIEGO, CA — NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) continues to smash through visual computing performance barriers with the introduction of NVIDIA Quadro Plex Visual Computing System (VCS) Model S4, a graphics server featuring a record number of graphics processing units (GPUs) in a standard 1U server form factor. The new server contains more Quadro graphics processing power in less space than has ever been achieved before, enabling interactive visualization of extremely large-scale data sets by multiple users with a minimal footprint.
Designed for data-centric applications such as off-line rendering, remote graphics applications and embedded visual computing, the Quadro Plex Model S4 server takes visual compute density to new extremes by incorporating four NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5600 professional GPUs in an industry-standard 1U rack configuration; dynamically allocating compute, geometry, shading and pixel processing power for optimized GPU performance. GPU computing for visualization solves programming functionality available in the NVIDIA CUDA tool suite...
