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.
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.
With more than 1,500 attendees, and over 30 technology demos, GTC DC was a huge success. PNY was proud to be a sponsor of GTC DC and have the opportunity to meet and discuss with attendees how NVIDIA Quadro solutions, including the new PREVAILPRO mobile workstation, can be part of their digital design workflow or AI development and deployment efforts.
From a real-life Hoverbike, possibly the world’s biggest autonomous aerial delivery drone, to NVIDIA’s Holodeck – where you strapped on a VR headset and worked with others to explore a photorealistic McLaren 720S supercar in real-time, at life-like scale, NVIDIA and its partners demonstrated how advanced graphics and AI will influence our lives in the future!
