NVIDIA Maximus Revolutionizes the Workstation


NVIDIA today officially released the Nvidia Maximus technology, a software technology that leverages the strengths of Tesla and Quadro products together in a single workstation.

The technology was firstly announced at SIGGRAPH 2011 as "Project Maximus"

The technology is actually a new way to use NVIDIA?s existing Quadro and Tesla products together. No new hardware is involved here, just new features in NVIDIAs drivers and new hooks exposed to application developers.

The technology has been designed to help creative professionals effectively use a workstation to perform complex analysis and visualization. The offering is accelerating work by enabling a single system for the first time to simultaneously handle interactive graphics and the compute-intensive number crunching associated with the simulation or rendering of the results. These previously needed to be done in separate steps or on separate systems.

NVIDIA Maximus achieves this by bringing together the professional 3D graphics capability of NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics processing units (GPUs) with the parallel-computing power of the NVIDIA Tesla C2075 companion processor -- under a unified technology that assigns work to the right processor and is certified by application vendors.

"To those of us who have spent their careers focused on workstations, NVIDIA Maximus represents a revolution," said Jeff Brown, general manager, Professional Solutions Group, NVIDIA. "Previous workstation architectures forced designers and engineers to do compute-intensive work and graphics-intensive work serially and often offline. They can now do them at the same time, on the same machine, allowing professionals to explore more ideas faster and converge quickly on the best possible answers."

With NVIDIA Maximus-enabled applications -- such as those from Adobe, ANSYS, Autodesk, Bunkspeed, Dassault Systemes and MathWorks -- GPU compute work is assigned to run on the NVIDIA Tesla companion processor. This frees up the NVIDIA Quadro GPU to handle graphics functions.

Workstation OEMs -- including HP, Dell, Lenovo, and Fujitsu -- are all offering workstations featuring NVIDIA Maximus technology, available for configuration and purchase immediately.

NVIDIA Maximus desktop workstation configurations start with the pairing of the NVIDIA Quadro 600 ($199 MSRP, USD) + NVIDIA Tesla C2075 ($2,499 MSRP, USD).
