  • Fast 3D Texture Transfer
    Fast transfer and manipulation of 3D textures resulting in more interactive visualization of large volumetric dataset.
  • Frame Synchronization
    Allows the display channels from multiple workstations to be synchronized, thus creating one large “virtual display” that can be driven by a multisystem cluster for performance scalability.
  • Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)
    Up to 32x FSAA dramatically reduces visual aliasing artifacts or “jaggies,” resulting in highly realistic scenes.
  • External Synchronization
    Also known as “house sync.” External Synchronization allows the graphics output to synchronized to an external source, typically for film and broadcast video applications.
  • NVIDIA ® CUDA™
    A C language environment and tool suite in combination with high performance visualization unleashes new capabilities to solve highly complex challenges such as real-time ray tracing and interactive volume rendering.
  • NVIDIA Graphics API Extensions
    NVIDIA provides a set of extensions to standard graphics APIs for Linux and Windows, enabling applications to take maximum advantage of state-of-the-art GPU capabilities.
  • Hardware 3D Window Clipping
    Hardware accelerated clip regions (data transfer mechanism between a window and the frame buffer) which improve overall graphics performance by increasing transfer speed between color buffer and frame buffer.
  • Hardware-Accelerated Pixel Read-Back
    Up to 2.4GB/sec pixel read-back performance delivers massive host throughput.
  • Highest Workstation Application Performance
    Next-generation architecture enables over 2x improvement in geometry and fill rates with the industry’s highest performance for professional CAD, DCC, and scientific applications.
