Nvidia announced a new version of the Nvidia Quadro Plex visual computing system (VCS), which incorporates the unified architecture and GPU computing capability of Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 graphic processing units (GPUs). The new Quadro Plex VCS boosts workstation and cluster performance for a wide range of high-performance, graphics-intensive styling and design work, from oil and gas to scientific applications.
The Nvidia Quadro Plex VCS Model IV features a new unified architecture, first introduced with the Nvidia Quadro FX 4600 and 5600 solutions, dynamically allocates compute, geometry, shading and pixel processing power to deliver optimized GPU performance
Featuring Nvidia SLI multi-GPU technology, the Nvidia Quadro Plex is an external, visual compute system delivering a twenty time increase in density when compared to traditional GPU solutions. By delivering rendering power of up to 80 billion pixels per second and seven billion vertices per second with resolutions as high as 148 megapixels on 16 synchronized digital-output channels or eight HD SDI channels, the Quadro Plex can be configured as a single system or added to a visualization cluster for scalability.
The Quadro Plex VCS Model IV is priced at US$17,495 and is currently available through Nvidia and distribution partners worldwide, including PNY Technologies, Leadtek, and Elsa.
