PNY Pro Tip #11: SOLIDWORKS Visualize Quadro GPU Benchmarking

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, Apr 19, 2019 @ 02:58 PM

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.

Here’s an example of SOLIDWORKS Visualize and VR presenting a 360-degree interior rendering of a luxury jet for design and client review to validate the design, identify issues requiring corrective action, and speedup the approval process so the plane’s interior can go into production.

SOLIDWORKS has published a set of Visualize graphics board benchmark results to guide GPU purchasing decisions.  Only the Quadro line of NVIDIA GPUs are certified by SOLIDWORKS for use with their software, another important reason to buy certified Quadro graphics boards to deliver the performance, features, and stability to realize an ROI from your SOLIDWORKS software products.

See the benchmark results and the Visualize project used.



Quadro RTX professional graphics boards, based on NVIDIA’s Turing architecture, deliver real-time rendering, advanced shading, and AI acceleration for features like AI-denoising of SOLIDWORKS Visualize projects.  PNY is proud to recommend Quadro RTX as the solution of choice for SOLIDWORKS Visualize professionals.
