Introduction

This solution is comprised of (a) NVIDIA RTX A6000, A40, RTX 8000 and/or RTX 6000 graphics cards; (b) NVIDIA RTX vWS software (c) Autodesk Revit 2020, Rhino 3D 6 and SketchUp design software; (d) Omniverse Collaboration and Rendering Software; (e) VMware vSphere 7 Update 2 (f) Teradici Cloud Access Software Solution; (g) Dell DSS 8440, Dell PowerEdge R740, HPE Apollo 6500 Gen10, or HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 servers. These validated solutions provide unprecedented rendering and compute performance at a fraction of the cost, space, and power consumption of traditional CPU-based render nodes, as well as high performance virtual workstations enabling designers and artists to arrive at their best work, faster.

Built on the NVIDIA Ampere™ architecture, the NVIDIA® A40, combine 48GB of graphics memory with the latest generation RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and NVIDIA Ampere architecture CUDA® cores for unprecedented graphics, rendering, and AI performance. Additional support for a range of commercially available remote access software means you can access the power of your RTX desktop workstation from anywhere. Achieve breakthrough innovations with the world’s most powerful graphics solution.

The NVIDIA RTX™ A6000, built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, delivers everything designers, engineers, scientists, and artists need to meet the most graphics and compute-intensive workflows. The RTX A6000 is equipped with the latest generation RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and CUDA® cores for unprecedented rendering, AI, graphics, and compute performance. Certified with a broad range of professional applications, tested by leading independent software vendors (ISVs) and workstation manufacturers, and backed by a global team of support specialists, NVIDIA RTX is the visual computing solution of choice for demanding enterprise deployments.

The NVIDIA RTX 8000 & RTX 6000, both powered by the NVIDIA Turing™ architecture and the NVIDIA RTX platform, brings the most significant advancement in computer graphics in over a decade to professional workflows. Designers and artists can now wield the power of hardware-accelerated ray tracing, deep learning, and advanced shading to dramatically boost productivity and create amazing content faster than ever before.

NVIDIA RTX vWS enables delivery of the most powerful virtual workstations from the data center or cloud to any device, anywhere. It lets IT virtualize any application from the data center with a native workstation user experience, eliminates constrained workflows, and flexibly scales GPU resources to run multiple workloads. Virtualization offers the ability to efficiently centralize applications and data at a dramatically lower IT operating expense which allows administrators to focus IT resources on managing strategic projects versus individual workstations – all while enabling a more secure, work-from-anywhere environment with reduced threat of data loss or leakage.
