NVIDIA follows its own, taking new cards to the market to cover all possible gaps between different ranges. In today’s case, he presented his professional mid-range GPU called NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 at the annual Autodesk University conference in Las Vegas, which makes real-time ray tracing available to a wider audience.
As has happened with the superior ranges, NVIDIA will make the most of its dies and matrices in terms of designs of its GPUs. Thus, we have many features that we have seen in previous GPUs to which are added some improvements, support and specific design for professional environments.
These Turing GPUs represent the biggest leap in terms of capabilities for the development industry and professionals. We have to go back to 2006 with the presentation of CUDA to see something similar and attract the attention of so many professionals in the sector.
As we said, this Quadro RTX 4000 will have a slot design to save space and adapt it to the largest number of chassis within the current workstations.
Like its desktop version, it will have 8 GB of GDDR6 that will provide up to 40% more bandwidth when compared to the Quadro P4000. In addition and how could it be otherwise, will have 36 RT Cores to work with ray tracing in real time and 288 Tensor Cores with a performance of 57 teraflops for deep learning and AI.
It will include support for VirtualLink for virtual reality developers through the USB-C port and will also add video encoding and decoding engines as well as acceleration up to an 8K resolution.
In this university, professionals and brands have come together that, of course, are highlighting the benefits of the Quadro cards as well as their novelties and Turing architecture. To highlight the statements of Tom Tobul, vice president and general manager of Commercial Specialty Products of Dell, who said they are delighted to offer the full range of Quadro workstations, either in tower or Dell Precision rack.
These new solutions will help your customers work smarter and faster, not only because of the hardware NVIDIA brings, but because of the tool that Dell has designed exclusively called Dell Precision Optimizer 5.0. This tool employs a trained machine learning model to automatically adjust, thus optimizing configuration and offering up to 552 percent improvement in application performance.
This professional mid-range NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 card will be available from December on the NVIDIA website and at major workstation manufacturers, including Dell, HP and Lenovo, where authorized distribution partners will also be accommodated, including PNY, ELSA and Leadtek.
Developers can access the new OptiX and Vulkan development API for free, but not the card, as this NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 will cost USD 900.
