NVIDIA Advances the State of Graphics for CAD and DCC Visualization

Published: 13 January, 2008
NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA), the world leader in visual computing technologies, once again takes the lead in improving productivity for computer-aided design (CAD) and digital content creators with the announcement of the NVIDIA Quadro(R) FX 3700, a high-end graphics board capable of delivering a performance increase of up to 2X as compared to the previous generation of product.

"Dassault Systemes' PLM solutions customers have always demanded the optimal combination of large-model performance and feature set from their graphic solutions. Now with the tight integration of GPU-based vertex scaling and CgFX-based realistic material shaders within CATIA, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700 comes at the ideal time and with the ideal combination of performance and features," said Christophe Delattre, Dassault Systemes, R&D manager, Visualization. "We certainly feel the Quadro FX 3700 will address our users' demanding expectations."

The Quadro FX 3700 graphics board offers high throughput for interactive visualization, and with 112 parallel processors, 512 MB of onboard graphics memory, and a 256-bit memory interface, the card easily manages the large models and complex, real-time shaders that dominate the CAD and digital content creation (DCC) markets.
