Quadro and Catia
With complex add-on programs and long wait times it used to be that photorealistic rendering was reserved just for the styling and marketing departments. No longer. Realistic models are fast becoming a necessity for designers and engineers for more accurate and faster decisions throughout the entire process.

With rendering integrated directly within CATIA – powered by NVIDIA® Maximus™ technology – Live Rendering provides an intuitive and interactive means for creating images that rival photographs, up to 6x faster3. NVIDIA Maximus-powered workstations are the first to deliver a unified platform that combines the industry-leading professional 3D graphics capability of NVIDIA® Quadro® GPUs and the high performance computing power of NVIDIA® Tesla™ GPUs. The Tesla co-processors automatically take the heavy lifting of rendering, freeing the Quadro GPUs to do what they do best—enabling rich interactive graphics.
