NVIDIA EGX Platform for Professional Visualization

High-Performance Visual Computing in the Data Center

From rendering and virtualization to engineering analysis and data science, accelerate multiple workloads on any device with the NVIDIA® EGX Platform for professional visualization. A highly flexible reference design that combines high-end NVIDIA GPUs with NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software and high-performance networking, these systems deliver exceptional graphics and compute power, enabling artists and engineers to do their best work—from anywhere—at a fraction of the cost, space, and power of CPU-based solutions.

The ray-tracing capabilities of NVIDIA RTX help artists push the boundaries of content creation. Arnold GPU is now available, and we’re excited to see how our users will take advantage of the unprecedented rendering speeds and amazing efficiency.

—  Chris Vienneau, Senior Director of Media and Entertainment Products, Autodesk

Cinesite was proud to be an early partner with NVIDIA on the RTX technology platform, but we never expected results this dramatic. We can iterate faster, more frequently, and with higher quality. This will completely change how our artists work.

— Michele Sciolette, CTO, Cinesite

NVIDIA RTX vWS made it so that 98–99% of our users could use the virtual environment just like a physical machine sitting in front of them. Users are actually reporting back that it performs exactly the same as a physical machine.

— Wesley Struble, CAD System Administrator, DENSO International America

One of the biggest challenges in virtual production is achieving physically accurate lighting in real time. RTX technology enables real-time ray tracing within our Genesis platform, making photorealism possible for the first time ever live on set.

— Francesco Giordana, Real-Time Software Architect, MPC Film

To give our artists more compute power, we can easily increase NVIDIA vGPU profile sizes and reduce the number of users we put on each server. We don’t need to replace any equipment.

— Daire Byrne, Global Head of Systems, DNEG

Delivering the Most Powerful Virtual Workstations

The EGX Platform combined with NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software can simplify deployment of a high-performance, cost-effective infrastructure, providing a solution that is tested and certified with industry-leading partners and ISV applications on trusted OEM servers. It enables professionals to do their work from anywhere, while increasing productivity, improving data center utilization, and reducing IT and maintenance costs. Deploy powerful virtual workstations with advanced graphics capabilities to tackle a variety of workloads from interactive rendering to graphics-rich virtual workstations running design and visualization applications or game development.

Rendering

Render final frames quicker or boost local workstation rendering performance with the power of GPU acceleration. By utilizing software accelerated by NVIDIA RTX™ technology, designers and artists can render jobs offline and produce final ray-traced images at a fraction of the time of traditional CPU-based render nodes. Even achieve fully interactive, photorealistic visualization in the application viewport by connecting to one or more servers to boost desktop performance.

Engineering Simulation and Analysis

Set up, test, and iterate on complex simulations faster with servers for professional visualization, which deliver the massive compute power needed to drive simulation and generative design software tools. When coupled with RTX vWS software, engineers can design by day and compute by night from anywhere. GPU-powered parallel processing accelerates 32-bit simulation codes, while the latest generation RT Cores and Tensor Cores help RTX technology-enabled applications render more physically accurate results faster. Combining multiple NVIDIA GPUs with RTX vWS allows engineers to run simulations more quickly, smoothly and securely, processing higher-fidelity models in a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment.

Data Science

Data science requires powerful computing capabilities to turn massive amounts of data into valuable insights. With NVIDIA GPUs and RTX vWS, data scientists can provision multiple high-performance data science workstations to bring GPU-acceleration to their entire workflow in a virtualized environment, from data preparation and model training to visualization. NVIDIA CUDA-X AI and containers from the NGC catalog feature a collection of software-accelerated libraries like RAPIDS™ and XGBoost to completely transform data science and AI workloads, allowing data scientists to make predictions faster than ever before.

Collaborative Design

The journey from ideation to creation is a multi-stage process that requires close collaboration between design and development teams. With NVIDIA Omniverse, a leading-edge digital collaboration platform, engineers and designers can simplify workflows for real-time graphics. Running the Omniverse platform with RTX vWS software streamlines 2D and 3D product pipelines for design teams working in a wide range of industries. Built around the latest industry standards for design collaboration, it lets you maintain live connections between industry-standard applications and NVIDIA Omniverse View.

Collaborative Design

Augmented and Virtual Reality at the Edge

Bringing GPU visualization to the edge requires expertise across cloud orchestration, virtualization, 5G network operations, and more. Accelerate time to visualization at the edge with servers for extended reality (XR) 5G multi-access edge computing (MEC), a full-stack hardware and software solution. By combining NVIDIA RTX GPUs with RTX vWS software and the NVIDIA CloudXR™ SDK, developers can securely run and scale XR applications to untethered devices across 5G networks from anywhere.

AR and VR at the Edge

Scalable Visualization Solutions

Drive dynamic, large-scale environments with servers configured for scalable visualization, allowing professionals to easily deploy and manage large-display environments from the data center. Whether developing the next theme park attraction or creating multi-sided cave automatic virtual environments (CAVE), it’s easier than ever to drive the most immersive visual experiences.
