Quadro and Catia
Work faster in CATIA with NVIDIA Kepler
The latest Quadro® graphics cards – based on the NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture- allow you to use advanced textures and materials on large assemblies without slowing down the design process. Stylists can now use realistic materials like car paint, carbon fiber, and leather stitching to render life-like models. Electrical and hydraulics engineering teams can navigate complete airplane or car assemblies to make correct technical decisions faster. Go ahead and rotate, pan, zoom, and modify without worry. Quadro with Kepler gives you the power you need.

Multi-GPU Technology
Workstations with NVIDIA Multi-GPU technology (NVIDIA Maximus™) provide CATIA and CATIA Live Rendering users with greater graphics and computational performance than ever. Engineers and designers in industries ranging from automotive and aerospace to consumer packaged goods can perform fast SIMULIA Abaqus simulations or photorealistic rendering while still working on their designs.

CATIA Live Rendering Optimization Guide
With complex add-on programs and long wait times it used to be that photorealistic rendering was reserved just for styling and marketing. No longer. Realistic models are a necessity for designers and engineers for more accurate and faster decisions throughout the process. Learn More.
