With the announcement of eight new Ampere architecture GPUs (graphics processing unit) for next-generation devices, Nvidia is looking at capturing the “work-from-anywhere” market.
“Hybrid work is the new normal,” said Bob Pette, VP of Professional Visualisation at Nvidia. “RTX GPUs, based on the Nvidia Ampere architecture, provide the performance for demanding workloads from any device so people can be productive from wherever they need to work.”
For desktops, the new Nvidia RTX A5000 and Nvidia RTX A4000 GPUs feature new RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and Cuda cores to speed artificial intelligence (AI), graphics, and real-time rendering up to two times faster than previous generations.
For professionals on the go needing thin and light devices, the new Nvidia RTX A2000, Nvidia RTX A3000, RTX A4000, and RTX A5000 laptop GPUs promise to deliver accelerated performance without compromising mobility. They include the latest generations of Max-Q and RTX technologies and are backed by the Nvidia Studio ecosystem, which includes exclusive driver technology that enhances creative apps for optimal levels of performance and reliability.
For the data center, there are the new Nvidia A10 GPU and A16 GPU. The A10 provides up to two-and-a-half times the virtual workstation performance of the previous generation for designers and engineers, while the A16 GPU provides up to two times user density with a lower total cost of ownership and an enhanced virtual desktop infrastructure experience over the previous generation.
Combined with Nvidia RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) and Nvidia Virtual PC (vPC) software, the A10 and A16 GPUs deliver more power, memory, and speed to boost any workflow, from graphics and AI to VDI.
Next-generation RTX technology
The new Nvidia RTX GPUs feature the latest generation of Nvidia RTX technology to accelerate graphics, ray tracing, AI and compute. The new RTX laptop GPUs also include the latest generation of NVIDIA Max-Q technology, enabling a new generation of powerful thin and light laptops designed for professionals.
RTX technology powers Nvidia Omniverse — the only platform that delivers high-performance, physically accurate simulation for complex 3D worlds and true real-time ray- and path-traced rendering with ease.
Nvidia also introduced the Nvidia T1200 and Nvidia T600 laptop GPUs, based on its previous-generation Turing architecture. Designed for multi-application professional workflows, these GPUs are a significant upgrade in performance and capabilities from integrated graphics.
