NVLink was introduced with the Pascal generation graphics processors in 2016. NVLink was developed to address the bandwidth limitations which the PCI-Express data path imposed as demand for high data throughput continues to accelerate. Since its inception, NVIDIA improved the NVLink implementation and increased its bandwidth capability from a theoretical maximum of 80 GB/s bidirectional data throughput to 100 GB/s found on NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 and NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 graphics boards. With the latest Ampere architecture-based NVIDIA RTX A6000 professional graphics card, NVLink now provides up to 112GB/s of bidirectional data transfer between two connected NVIDIA RTX A6000 graphics boards.

On December 15, 2020, the sophisticated new NVIDIA® RTX™A6000 Workstation graphics board became available to professionals that require the fastest GPU designed specifically to accelerate professional applications and workflows. Architects, Artists, Designers, Engineers and Scientists can now purchase this graphics board for their workstations and enjoy up to twice the performance for doing AI training or graphic rendering compared to the still powerful previous generation NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000.
SOLIDWORKS is a computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) application from Dassault Systèmes. This highly versatile and capable software lets designers quickly sketch out ideas, experiment with different features, and produce models or detailed engineering drawings.
In SOLIDWORKS 2019, Dassault Systèmes introduced an experimental feature that offloads additional rendering operations from the CPU to powerful NVIDIA® GPUs. It’s called “Enhanced graphics performance” under the “Performance” sub-menu. By leveraging NVIDIA Quadro’s Open GL 4.5 hardware acceleration, this setting adds significant improvement during pan, zoom and rotate in the part or assembly environment. The performance scales up with higher end graphics cards, so it is ideally suited to High-end and beyond NVIDIA Quadro® RTX™ and NVIDIA RTX professional graphics products.
During this unprecedented period of Covid-19, many of us have found ourselves transitioning from the familiar bustling office environments to our not so quiet-and-quaint home settings. We are now sharing our office spaces not with our professional coworkers, but with family members and pets. Our homes are also not as insulated from the exterior as commercial office buildings. Street noises, and friendly neighbors doing their yard work are new challenges to our daily office lives.
These changes make it difficult to participate in online meetings quietly, forcing attendees to constantly switch between mute and unmute during meetings to prevent unwanted noises leaking into the conversations.
NVIDIA RTX Voice is a stand-alone application currently in beta phase that leverages the Tensor Cores found in the Turing RTX graphics cards and powerful neural network algorithms to remove background noise distractions from your audio input. RTX Voice can also help to remove the background noises coming from other meeting participants, greatly making the meeting conversation easier to understand.
NVIDIA® Quadro View™ is a Desktop Management software utility designed by NVIDIA to help creative professionals manage single or multi-monitor workspaces with ease, giving you maximum flexibility and control over your display real estate and the ability to create multiple virtual desktops optimized for specific tasks. In this blog, we will cover the Quadro View installation process and discuss the benefits of deploying Quadro View on NVIDIA Quadro equipped workstations.
