  • QPI = Quick Path Interconnect <br /> PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express),
  • thermal design power (TDP),
  • Once air passes through the HexPerf, it enters multiple channels guided by large diameter fans, ensuring cool air passes over key components, and warm air exits the system. <br />

  • NVIDIA is built on a foundation of leadership in visual computing. <br /> We attract the best minds in the field. <br /> And we build technologies and products that span its entire spectrum — from fundamental inventions, to processors incorporating our GPUs, to system components, to fully integrated systems. <br /> <br /> NVIDIA targets three main verticals: gaming, professional visualization and design, and high performance computing and big data analytics. <br /> For each, we offer a platform of processors, software, tools, marketing, expertise and, increasingly, connected services. <br /> Each of our vertical markets is a multi-billion dollar opportunity. <br /> In gaming, we target several hundred million gamers with GeForce GPUs,  our SHIELD gaming device, and GRID, which drives online gaming services.  <br /> In professional visualization, we target some 20 million designers and artists, and a couple of hundred million professionals who need to use the 3D assets in their work. <br /> In HPC & big data, we target the 10 million servers built each year. <br /> <br /> We leverage the work we do for these markets by selling components and licensing IP to leading OEMs who wish to create devices differentiated by rich graphics. <br /> Leading OEMs, from Apple to Audi, build over 1 billion computing devices each year that incorporate GPUs. <br /> NVIDIA creates the world’s best GPUs to address this opportunity, either through processors or IP licensing. <br /> <br />
  • NVIDIA Quadro GPUs free up CPU resources to do the work they’re best suited for – I/O, running the operating system and multi-tasking. With built-in memory and dedicated graphics processing, Quadro professional graphics deliver rich, fully-interactive performance. With up to 4X performance gains for Creo 2 your ideas can be created faster than ever before
  •   <br /> OIT makes transparent materials look more realistic. No longer will you see artifacts in your transparency. Performance is notably faster as well since the hardware is doing the work instead of the software trying emulate the transparency effects.  So NVIDIA users, get ready for some awesome transparency effects. <br />   <br />
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA Quadro K2000 2GB of memory <br /> Why – Supports the CAD visualization needs of 3D design. Those with large 3D models will want to upgrade to the NVIDIA Quadro K4000 3GB of memory. <br /> CPU: Intel® Xeon® E5-1660 v2 (6C/3.7GHz/130W) <br /> Why? – These applications are largely single threaded, and need the maximum in CPU performance. In addition many CAD applications provide rendering and analysis options so 6 cores will help with these tasks. Some cost conscious users will want to use the Xeon® E5-1620 v2 (4C/3.7GHz/130W) <br /> Memory: 16 GB ECC memory <br /> Why? – this depends on model size, could vary. 8 GB is the minimum. For large data sets use 4 GB DIMMs x 8 slots (32 GB Total) <br /> Storage: 256GB 6Gb/s SSD, 1 TB Disk Drive <br /> Why? – load OS and application on the SSD for quick performance, and store data on the disk drive for more expansion <br /> Visual: ThinkVision LT2452p 24-inch IPS Monitor – QTY 2 <br /> Why? – This is a very high resolution monitor and is needed for accurate design, and screen space is a very important productivity consideration. 2 24 inch monitors are less costly than 1 30 inch. <br />

  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA Quadro 5000 4GB of memory <br /> Why – Supports GPU processing and display. Some users will want to add one or two Tesla K20 to get the maximum GPU performance <br /> CPU: •2x Intel®Xeon E5-2690 v2 (10C/3.0GHz/130W) <br /> Why? – Simulation needs cores and speed. This combination can process 20 threads, 40 with hyper-threading enabled – Some users such as ANSYS users will want to match cores to licenses available, and change the core selection. <br /> Memory: 128 GB ECC memory <br /> Why? – this depends on application and could vary. For best performance uses 8 GB DIMMs x 16 slots to use the full memory bandwidth. We recommend a minimum of 4 GB per physical core for simulation. <br /> Storage: 256GB 6Gb/s SSD, 1 TB Disk Drive (Qty 2) <br /> Why? – load OS and application on the SSD for quick performance, and store data on the disk drive for more expansion. Some will want RAID configurations <br /> Visual: ThinkVision LT2452p 24-inch IPS Monitor <br /> Why? – This is a very high resolution monitor and is needed for accurate design review. <br />
  • This is a very strong message, but we have the proof to back it up. <br /> Technology Business Research recently conducted a study of average warranty repair rates. <br /> Over a typical three year lifecycle, ThinkStations are 24% more reliable than Dell, and 16% more reliable than HP.
