NVIDIA has developed five product brands to meet the needs of specific market segments:
TegraTegra is a complex system-on-a-chip with eight specialized processors, and consumes 50 times less power than the average PC notebook chip. It fuels the new generation of tablets, smart phones, portable media players and in-car driver safety/assist/infotainment systems.
IONION supercharges a netbook by delivering rich HD media in games, movies, and Web-based video. Fuse great performance and great battery life on next-generation NVIDIA ION netbooks featuring Optimus technology.
QuadroQuadro is used by animators, broadcasters, visual effects artists and industrial designers to help create and visualize their largest, most complex projects. The majority of the world’s cars and planes, as well as an array of consumer products, are designed using Quadro professional graphics solutions.
TeslaTesla is transforming the world of supercomputing. By using the GPU’s parallel processing capabilities, it delivers massive performance for scientists and researchers needing the power of a supercomputer, but at a fraction of its cost and power consumption.
We have also developed a variety of technologies that underpin our products and provide unique value to customers. For example, CUDA, our parallel computing architecture, enables GPUs to work with numerical data, as well as the geometry and pixels of images. CUDA is increasingly being used in a wide range of nonvisual contexts, from life sciences and medicine to energy discovery and quantum chemistry. There are now over 60,000 active CUDA developers around the world, and the architecture is taught at more than 350 universities in 40 countries.
