Pro Tip # 24 – Choosing the Right NVLink Bridge

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, Jan 29, 2021 @ 12:00 PM

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.

Interview with Clinton Jones - Director, Photographer, Visual Effects Artist and Recent Convert to NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, Nov 06, 2020 @ 12:15 PM

PNY recently caught up with Clinton Jones, a director, photographer and visual effects artist, as well as the Judge in PNY's latest contest, to get his feedback on his transition from using a consumer graphics card to the professional NVIDIA® Quadro® RTX 6000.  

What is your experience working with the NVIDIA Quadro RTX™ 6000 so far?

"It’s been incredible. The 24GBs of Vram and its RTX capability has sped up my workflow by a considerable amount. I can create much larger 3D scenes, navigate them smoothly, and render a lot faster."

Pro Tip # 22 - Boosting SOLIDWORKS performance with NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, Oct 23, 2020 @ 03:00 PM

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.

Pro Tip # 21 - Using NVIDIA RTX Voice to remove noise from your online meetings

Posted by PNY Pro on Fri, Sep 04, 2020 @ 01:00 PM

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.
