NVIDIA is giving people more options for their graphics cards: a newly affordable midrange Quadro RTX 4000 has been announced recently and is poised to be power efficient with a single slot design that fits in a variety of workstations.
Claims and Features:
The new graphics card is said to be fast and smooth right out of the box, with no latency issues and is geared toward designers and Autodesk users.
- Significant performance improvements — 8GB of ultra-fast GDDR6 graphics memory technology provides over 40 percent more memory bandwidth than the previous generation Quadro P4000.
- 36 RT Cores — enable real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination.
- 288 Turing Tensor Cores for 57 teraflops of deep learning performance — accelerate neural network training and inference, which are critical to powering AI-enhanced rendering, products, and services.
- Hardware support for VirtualLink — new open industry standard meets the power, display and bandwidth demands of next-generation VR headsets through a single USB-C connector1.
- Improved performance of VR applications — new and enhanced technologies include Variable Rate Shading, Multi-View Rendering and VRWorks Audio.
- Video encode and decode engines — accelerate video creation and playback for multiple video streams with resolutions up to 8K.
The Quadro RTX 4000 will be available starting December on nvidia.com and from leading workstation manufacturers, including Dell, HPI and Lenovo, and authorized distribution partners, including PNY Technologies in North America and Europe, ELSA/Ryoyo in Japan, and Leadtek and Ingram in the Asia Pacific.
