Quietly NVIDIA has just revealed its new Quadro Pro graphics card, no big deal right? Well yes it is a big deal considering its the same Pacal architecture that's powering the current generation graphics cards which now will be placed throughout the entire Pro Quadro line for the desktop PC. Pascal biggest claim to fame is its ability to play any gaming title in 4K resolution on one single graphic card. There are now over dozen or more Quadro graphics in operation using the Pascal architecture.
Pascal will provide a big boost in system performance that will include, VR, photo-realism, and deep learning technologies, all geared towards the industry professionals. According to NVIDIA, any Quadro graphic card based on Pascal platform will aid in streamlining design and simulation work flows increasing performance over the previous Quadro graphics cards based on the latter generation Maxwell architecture.
Impressive powerful features on NVIDIA's updated Quadro GP 100 graphic card, it will have 16GB of second generation high bandwidth memory (HBM2) and provide more than 20 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point precision computing. You can combine two cards into a NVLink and scale to a 32GB of HBM2, this can create a much larger visual computing for any user.
NVIDIA will include other desktop Quadro graphic cards that will be powered by Pascal it will go as follows, P4000, P2000, P1000, P600, and P400.
The Quadro Pro graphics card will definitely benefit high end workstations for those who engage in 3D CAD design.
According to NVIDIA, the new Quadro graphic card will be readily available starting in March. Workstation OEMs will get the first crack at the card, along with authorize partners that will include PNY in North America and Europe, ELSA/Ryoyo in Japan and LeadTek in the Asia Pacific.
