SOLIDWORKS Visualize is a powerful tool used by engineers and designers to turn CAD files into photorealistic rendered images or immersive VR experiences. The ability to quickly generate photorealistic quality rendering is crucial for design reviews, factory floor (or other) training, and collaboration with marketing and sales.
The Quadro RTX 4000 is already making an impression on the tech community with positive results and projected success. Print and web publications with years of industry involvement such as Develop 3D and Techgage are devoted to providing professionals the technical information they need. They, and others, are committed to their readership and focus on product and workflow enhancements, such as the Quadro RTX 4000, that improve productivity and creativity.
“Compared to previous generations, there’s more than immediately meets the eye with Quadro RTX. The architecture bump from Pascal to Turing in itself represents a big boost in performance (and efficiency), but the addition of Tensor and RT cores helps set RTX apart from the rest of the market." - Rob Williams, Techgage

Today, we will conclude our three part discussion about VirtualLink.
In Tip #7, we covered the intended application of VirtualLink to simplify future VR headset connection, then in Tip #9, we covered the alternative applications, such as high-speed data transfer and easy monitor hook up. Today, we will cover the potential issues with the inclusion of this new standard and how PNY can assist you in dealing with these issues.
In our PNY Pro Tip #7, we introduced the latest VirtualLink addition to the Turing RTX GPU output offering, and how it was developed to make VR more accessible. While the idea of one cable connection for VR is great, there are currently no VR HMDs (Head Mounted Display) available with VirtualLink. In this follow up blog, we will go over 3 ideas that our readers can use the VirtualLink port for.
Did you know the NVIDIA Windows 10 Drivers for Quadro and GeForce RTX Turing based GPUs are incompatible with Windows 10 RS2 or earlier? This includes Windows 10 Threshold 1, Threshold 2, Redstone 1, and Redstone 2 operating systems.
Owners of the new Turing-based Quadro or GeForce RTX graphics cards will notice their GPU offers a USB Type-C port in addition to the standard DisplayPort and HDMI ports. It might be odd to see a graphics board with a USB port, but the new addition makes Virtual Reality (VR) more accessible via a new open industry standard called VirtualLink.
When building a powerful workstation utilizing multiple graphics boards, an adequate and clean power supply to the power hungry GPUs is key to overall system stability and performance.
Overdrawing power can cause instability and system crashes, or could potentially overheat power cables to the extent of melting the plastic shielding and causing catastrophic shorts, or even a fire.
