NVIDIA today introduced the Quadro4 700 Go GL graphics processing unit (GPU), designed for mobile workstation graphics. NVIDIA announced that the NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL GPU is available immediately from Dell Computer Corporation in the Dell Precision M50 mobile workstation.
The NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL GPU brings the award-winning NVIDIA Quadro4 XGL desktop workstation architecture to mobile workstation platforms, delivering up to twice the performance of the award-winning NVIDIA Quadro4 500 Go GL mobile workstation GPU – a platform faster than many competing desktop workstation solutions.
The NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL includes hardware features that workstation applications require to deliver the highest performance for professionals in mission critical environments. These hardware accelerated features include antialiased points and lines, overlay planes, two-sided lighting, user clip planes, second-generation occlusion culling, high-quality full scene antialiasing, and many others, including support for the high-speed AGP 8X graphics interface. All these features combine to deliver the fastest mobile workstation OpenGL and DirectX application performance.
Like all members of the Quadro family, the NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL GPU utilises the NVIDIA Unified Driver Architecture (UDA), a set of backward and forward, top to bottom compatible graphics drivers that optimize application performance, stability, and reliability. In addition, the Company’s Quadro Applications Utilities add even more features and performance to key applications, including the NVIDIA MAXtreme custom driver for 3ds max; POWERdraft driver for AutoCAD; and QuadroView driver for professional 3D visualisation. The NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL GPU also features certification support for an extensive list of CAD, DCC, non-linear video editing and financial services applications.
