Advanced Rendering
NVIDIA is the world leader in visual computing. We constantly look for what's next and invest in rendering solutions that advance the state of visualization by developing technologies in conjunction with GPU architectures and compute languages. NVIDIA® mental ray® rendering software generates images of outstanding quality and unsurpassed realism and NVIDIA Iray®, is the world's first interactive, photo-realistic and physically correct rendering solution that leverages the parallel processing power of GPUs.

CUDA Architecture
NVIDIA CUDA® is a revolutionary parallel computing architecture. As an enabling hardware and software technology, CUDA makes it possible to use the many computing cores in a graphics processor to perform general-purpose mathematical calculations, achieving dramatic speedups in computing performance.

This breakthrough display technology delivers the smoothest, fastest and most breathtaking gaming imaginable. G-SYNC synchronizes the display refresh rates to the GPU in your GeForce® GTX-powered PC, eliminating screen tearing and minimizes display stutter and input lag. Scenes appear instantly. Objects look sharper and more vibrant. And gameplay is fluid and responsive, giving you a serious competitive edge.

NVIDIA Multi-GPU Technology (NVIDIA Maximus®) uses multiple professional graphics processing units (GPUs) to intelligently scale the performance of your application and dramatically speed up your workflow. This delivers significant business impact across industries such as manufacturing, media and entertainment, and energy exploration.

NVLink is a high-speed interconnect that replaces PCI Express to provide up to 12X faster data sharing between GPUs, or between the GPU and the CPU.

Optimus technology intelligently optimizes your notebook PC, providing the outstanding graphics performance you need, when you need it, all while extending battery life for longer enjoyment.

This programmable ray tracing framework helps software developers rapidly build ray tracing applications that yield extremely fast results across NVIDIA GPUs with conventional C programming. The OptiX engine allows software developers to quickly accelerate whatever ray tracing task they wish and execute it on widely available hardware—all license free.

PhysX is a powerful physics engine enabling real-time physics in leading edge PC and console games. This software is widely adopted by over 150 games, used by more than 10,000 developers of all types, and supported on Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and PC.

This is a revolutionary approach to scalability, combining multiple graphics cards in a PC to scale performance. SLI technology takes advantage of the increased bandwidth of the PCI Express™ bus architecture, and features intelligent hardware and software solutions that allow multiple NVIDIA GPUs to efficiently work together to deliver incredible performance.

Industry Technologies

AI Computing
AI computing enables every industry to find the higher intelligence in big data to solve the most challenging problems. From manufacturing to medicine to self-driving cars, AI computing is revolutionizing how we interact with--and learn from--technology.

Deep Learning
Deep learning is a subset of machine learning in which neural networks learn many levels of abstraction. This is what puts the "deep" in deep learning. Each layer categorizes some kind of information, refines it, and passes it along to the next. The parallel computing nature of GPUs accelerates this process to enable breakthroughs like facial recognition, real-time voice translation, and self-driving cars.

Machine Learning
Machine learning uses sophisticated neural networks to create systems that can perform feature detection from massive amounts of data. The GPU's computing power and parallel-processing efficiency enables neural networks to train far larger training sets, significantly faster, using far less data center resources.

MXM (Mobile PCI Express Module), the result of a joint design effort between NVIDIA and the industry's leading notebook manufacturers, provides a consistent interface for mobile PCI Express graphics.

Visual Computing
Visual computing is an amazing field that brings together the leading edge of technology, science, and art. Its power has simultaneously made it a tool for creation, a medium for artistic expression, and a platform for entertainment, exploration, and communications.
