Products and Services

NVIDIA has developed four product brands to meet the needs of specific market segments:
Tegra
Tegra is revolutionizing mobile computing and powering a new wave of super phones and tablets. A complex system-on-a-chip with eight specialized processors, NVIDIA® Tegra® 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.
Tegra
GeForce
GeForce ignites PC gaming and accelerates consumer desktop PCs and notebooks. Our best-known product line, it delivers crisp performance for playing games and watching movies on a PC. More than one billion NVIDIA® GeForce® GPUs have been sold over the past 12 years.
GeForce
Quadro
Quadro is the industry standard for engineering, design, medical imaging and film production. NVIDIA® Quadro® 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.
Quadro
Tesla
Tesla is at the forefront of supercomputing, combining top performance with energy efficiency. By using the GPU's parallel processing capabilities, NVIDIA® Tesla® is transforming the world of supercomputing. Tesla delivers massive performance for scientists and researchers needing the power of a supercomputer, and at a fraction of the cost and power consumption.

NVIDIA supports these products with an array of technologies that provide unique value to customers. These include, for example, NVIDIA® PhysX®, a graphics engine that replicates how forces such as gravity and motion act on physical objects, and NVIDIA® CUDA®, our parallel computing architecture. CUDA enables GPUs to work with numerical data, as well as the geometry and pixels of images. This revolutionary technology is increasingly being used in a wide variety of nonvisual contexts, from life sciences and medicine to energy discovery and quantum chemistry. Currently, there are more than 100,000 active CUDA developers around the world, and the CUDA architecture is taught at more than 300 universities in 40 countries.
