SINGAPORE — August 1, 2017 — NVIDIA today announced the NVIDIA external GPU that will allow 25 million artists and designers to easily upgrade the capability of their notebooks to support new workflows such as video editing, interactive rendering, VR content creation, AI development and more.
The NVIDIA External GPU For Artists and Designers
Creative professionals with underpowered graphics can now harness the power of NVIDIA TITAN X or NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards through an external GPU (eGPU) chassis and dramatically boost the performance of their applications.
“While more computer power than ever is needed for VR, photoreal rendering and AI workflows, mobile systems are getting thinner and lighter, with limited performance and memory,” says Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Visualisation, NVIDIA. “Our eGPUs can now solve this problem, enabling creatives to plug into our most capable GPUs so they can do their best work on the most graphically demanding applications.”
NVIDIA Quadro graphics will be available through qualified eGPU partners for those who use high-end content creation applications for animation, colour grading and rendering as well as CAD and simulation apps. The qualification process ensures users of compatibility, reliability and performance of their Quadro eGPU solution.
To ensure prosumers enjoy great performance with applications such as Autodesk Maya and Adobe Premier Pro, NVIDIA is also releasing a new performance driver for NVIDIA TITAN X to make it faster than ever before.
Available starting in September, Quadro eGPU solutions will be available through qualified partners such as Bizon, One Stop Systems/Magma and Sonnet with more to come.
