Vor knapp drei Monaten hatten wir bereits über den NV28M berichtet (News), welcher nun endlich seinen ersten Einsatz in der neuen Quadro4 700 Go GL Platine gefunden hat. Die neue Mobile-Lösung des GeForce 4 soll gerade unter CAD, 3ds-max etc. die gewohnten Quadro-Leistungen bringen. Hier die Pressemitteilung von Entwickler Nvidia (Englisch)...
"SANTA CLARA, CA—FEBRUARY 4, 2003—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today introduced the NVIDIA Quadro®4 700 Go GL graphics processing unit (GPU), designed for professional users who demand exceptional performance, stability and quality for workstation graphics. In addition, NVIDIA announced that the NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL GPU is available immediately from Dell Computer Corporation in the Dell™ Precision™ M50 mobile workstation (http://www.dell.com/precision).
The NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL GPU brings the award-winning NVIDIA Quadro4 XGL desktop workstation architecture to mobile workstation platforms, delivering up to twice the performance of the award-winning NVIDIA Quadro4 500 Go GL mobile workstation GPU–a platform faster than many competing desktop workstation solutions.
“NVIDIA mobile workstation GPUs are specifically designed for professional users who require freedom and flexibility to be productive no matter where they are,” stated Jeff Brown, senior director of workstation product management at NVIDIA. “Now with the Dell M50 and the NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL, professional workstation users no longer need to sacrifice performance when they are away from the office.”
The NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL includes hardware features that workstation applications require to deliver the highest performance for professionals in mission critical environments. These hardware accelerated features include antialiased points and lines, overlay planes, two-sided lighting, user clip planes, second-generation occlusion culling, high-quality full scene antialiasing, and many others, including support for the high-speed AGP 8X graphics interface. All these features combine to deliver the fastest mobile workstation OpenGL® and DirectX® application performance.
Like all members of the Quadro family, the NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL GPU utilizes the NVIDIA® Unified Driver Architecture (UDA), a set of backward and forward, top to bottom compatible graphics drivers that optimize application performance, stability, and reliability. In addition, the Company’s Quadro Applications Utilities add even more features and performance to key applications, including the NVIDIA MAXtreme™ custom driver for 3ds max™; POWERdraft™ driver for AutoCAD™; and QuadroView™ driver for professional 3D visualization. The NVIDIA Quadro4 700 Go GL GPU also features certification support for an extensive list of CAD, DCC, non-linear video editing and financial services applications..."
