  • Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR)…. National Capital Region (NCR)….
  • Stringent IP protection measures: The Government of India and Indian design companies have strict policies on IP protection as compared to other competing Asian countries. There have been instances when companies have sent work to India, even though design turnaround times are considerably higher in the country, as compared to the countries mentioned above, because of the more stringent IP protection measures in India.
  • GeForce-DirectX 11 game or 3D movie.  Supports NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ suite of technologies, including active-shutter glasses, for stereo 3D.Quadro-  For on-air broadcast, GPUs enable real-time digital content, touch displays, and virtual sets.  Animators, broadcasters, visual-effects artists and industrial designers overwhelmingly use Quadro.Tesla-programmable GPUs led to breakthroughs in parallel processing.  climate modeling to quantum physics to finding a cure for cancer.
