ANNOUNCING NEXT-GEN NVIDIA MAXIMUS
Workstations with the latest NVIDIA® Maximus™ technology provides SolidWorks users with even greater graphics and computational performance than ever before. You get incredibly fast and surprisingly cost efficient ways to perform accurate CAE simulations while still working in SolidWorks. All right at your desktop.
As always, all NVIDIA professional graphics solutions are certified and tested by SolidWorks and NVIDIA, so they'll work perfectly from day one.

WORK FASTER WITH NVIDIA
NVIDIA has taken industry tests to a new level. 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.
When comparing previous generations of NVIDIA professional graphics in SolidWorks 2012 to current generation graphics in SolidWorks 2013, you can see dramatic performance improvement in all 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 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, Quadro professional solutions accelerate Bunkspeed. Bunkspeed is an interactive ray-tracing application that harnesses the immense processing power of the NVIDIA GPU. 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.
Bunkspeed integrates into SolidWorks for a seamless workflow.
Creating and sharing photorealistic models has never been easier or faster. Whether rendered on your local machine or in the private or public cloud, with Quadro professional solutions enable it all. Click for more information about Bunkspeed
ENHANCED 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 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.
