The world’s leading workstation OEMs including HP, Dell, Lenovo, and Fujitsu, together with systems integrators such as BOXX Technologies and Supermicro – will offer second generation NVIDIA Maximus-powered workstations.
The software vendors who will certify and support these NVIDIA Maximus-powered workstations include Adobe, ANSYS, Autodesk, Bunkspeed, Dassault Systèmes, MathWorks and Paradigm.
In conclusion, it seems that NVIDIA has attempted to garner both hardware and software support for its 2nd-generation Maximus platform. Besides banking on the end-users of software offered by the above mentioned vendors, to increase the acceptance of its updated platform, we feel that the company should also target the GPU developers beyond these major software players by making the Maximus platform and its APIs more open and transparent. This will make it easier for these developers to leverage on the Maximus platform of software and drivers, as well as the CUDA framework, to ensure that their programs coded are optimized to run on these Maximus rigs.
