Solidworks runs FASTER WITH NVIDIA Kepler
Working closely with SolidWorks and users like you, we've developed advanced tools that mimic the real-life manipulation of how you use your models on a daily basis. As a result, you get a more accurate representation of how SolidWorks will perform based on which GPU is used.
The latest Quadro® graphics cards – based on the NVIDIA Kepler
™ architecture - provide exceptional performance in all SolidWorks design modes. Significant changes have been made in SolidWorks 2013 to better leverage the GPU for edge display. You will experience this difference in component design where you use edges the most all the way to large assembly design where turning on edges is now a realistic, real-time performance display choice. So, go ahead and enable Shaded with Edges, Shadows or Full Scene Anti-Aliasing (FSAA) - and create your visions without limitations.
USE EDRAWINGS IN STEREOSCOPIC 3D
| ||A little known fact about the most popular SolidWorks add-in, eDrawings, is that it works in 3D! Everyone knows how valuable eDrawings is for sharing native SolidWorks files for design or marketing reviews. But, imagine the amount of detail that can be displayed in stereoscopic 3D to really give your customers and managers the true representation of your design.|

SUPERIOR, REAL-TIME PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERING
|For the most remarkable, life-like models in a fraction of the time, NVIDIA Maximus accelerates Bunkspeed. Bunkspeed is an interactive ray-tracing application that harnesses the immense processing power of NVIDIA GPUs. With an amazingly easy-to-use intuitive interface, Bunkspeed quickly and accurately simulates the physical world, so you don't have to. By easily integrating with SolidWorks Standard or Premium, you get a seamless workflow from design to photorealistic imagery without any data loss.

Creating and sharing photorealistic models has never been easier or faster, whether rendered on your local machine or in the private or public cloud. More about Bunkspeed
ENHANCED 3D IMAGE QUALITY WITHIN SOLIDWORKS
Unlike consumer gaming cards, Quadro professional graphics solutions enable RealView and full scene antialiasing (FSAA). With RealView and Quadro, your 3D models quickly come to life and interact with their environments. You can assign various appearances and scenes, change materials, textures or surroundings and your model will instantly appear the way a real world item should. By enabling FSAA, jagged edges (“jaggies”) are removed from contours of geometries for smoother, more realistic models. Which means, with Quadro under the hood, you'll get the highest quality, most realistic images.
Standard 3D Mode (Realview, FSAA turned off)
Image is void of real-world reflections and textures. Jagged edges are visible.
Enhanced 3D Mode (Realview, FSAA turned on)
A more realistic and detailed model. Shadows, reflections and textures appear as they would in real life, edges are smoother.
