The company aims to keep up with trends in the manufacturing field as well as the media and entertainment industry. In the former, designers and engineers drive the need for more powerful graphics processors due to their need to share product prototypes, resulting in the growing adoption of application suites that require the compute prowess of these professional graphics chips.
In the media and entertainment industry, one of the main challenges is to keep the cost of content creation down while keeping up with the industry's need for 4K and High Frame Rate (HFR) video content.
According to NVIDIA, the application support for Kepler-based Quadro cards covers a broad range of CAD applications that include CATIA, AutoCAD, and Inventor; while on the media and entertainment front, these cards support over 25 applications including Adobe, Avid, Sony Vegas.
The creation of such high-definition content on both manufacturing and entertainment fronts will naturally drive the need and adoption of 4K and 8K display technology in the near future and NVIDIA aims to consolidate its hold on these fronts with its expanded Kepler-based Quadro graphics cards. From 05 March, these graphics cards are expected to be available from workstation OEMs including HP, Dell, Lenovo, and Fujitsu, together with systems integrators such as BOXX Technologies and Supermicro.
