Computers have long been used in Hollywood to add special effects to movies, but the level of realism that can be achieved with today's technology is nothing short of astounding. Keep that in mind when you go watch Deadpool, and in particular pay close attention to the 90-second title sequence.From start to finish, that entire scene was created in CG (computer graphics). As you might imagine, some serious graphics horsepower is required for that amount of detail and realism, and NVIDIA is quick to point out that its Maxwell-based Quadro M6000 GPUs did the bulk of the heavy lifting (from a hardware perspective). They were part of a series of HP Z840 workstations that CG artists from Blur Studios... Read more...
NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture has already torn up the gaming world, thanks to cards like the GeForce GTX Titan X and the GeForce GTX 980. NVIDIA recently took time to bring that same Maxwell goodness over the workstation market as well and the result is the new Quadro M6000, NVIDIA's new highest-end workstation platform. Like the Titan X, the M6000 is based on the full-fat version of the Maxwell GPU, the G200. Also, like the GeForce GTX Titan X, the Quadro M6000 has 12GB of GDDR5, 3072 GPU cores, 192 texture units (TMUs), and 96 render outputs (ROPs). At first glance, the M6000 may seem like a fairly small upgrade compared to NVIDIA's previous top-end GPU, the K6000. Both the older GPU and the... Read more...
NVIDIA released its Quadro M6000 at last week's GPU Technology Conference, but interestingly, it was without much fanfare. Perhaps that has something to do with the card belonging to the professional market and NVIDIA doesn't feel the need to trumpet in a new release, but this thing deserves that. As the "M" in its name implies, this is a Maxwell-based Quadro - the first of its kind. Just as with the desktop GeForce series, the move from Kepler to Maxwell on Quadro offers a slew of benefits, from improved general performance (in some cases up to 2.5x) to increased power efficiency. Specs-wise, the M6000 is effectively a GTX TITAN X, but clocked down ever-so-slightly. We're talking 3,072 CUDA... Read more...
