The new NVIDIA Quadro Plex Systems bring visual Supercomputing to the deskside with 480 processing cores, NVIDIA CUDA programmability and 8GB of Graphics Memory.
The new D series of NVIDIA Quadro Plex Visual Computing Systems (VCS) are available in deskside or rackmount configurations.

The Quadro Plex systems are ideal for the styling and design, geosciences and scientific visualization industries, working with extremely large 3D models, datasets and power walls. The new Quadro Plex series provides performance improvements of up to 100% over previous versions and offers massively parallel processing capabilities using multiple Quadro graphics cards for visualization, large-scale projection and display, or computation with the NVIDIA CUDA Parallel Computing Processor.

The NVIDIA Quadro Plex 2200 D2 VCS, with two Quadro GPUs, 4 dual-link DVI channels, and 8 GB of frame buffer memory, is designed for advanced visualization of extremely large models and datasets, as well as high-performance computing processes. Its partner, the Quadro Plex 2100 D4 VCS with four GPUs, 8 dual-link DVI channels and a 4 GB frame buffer, is optimized for multi-display applications.

A Quadro Plex D series VCS can turn workstations and servers into visual supercomputers. Easily connected to a host workstation via a low-power PCI Express adapter card, the Quadro Plex VCS gives workstations the massively parallel processing capabilities of multiple Quadro graphics cards and features an ultra-quiet design, allowing the system to be deployed deskside. It can also be deployed in a standard 3U, 19-inch rackmount configuration, for maximum visual computational density.

The new Quadro Plex 2200 D2 VCS houses two Quadro FX 5800 GPUs, providing 480 NVIDIA CUDA Parallel Computing Processor cores and 8GB of graphics memory. The thermal and power management capabilities of the chassis offer up to 20% performance improvement over standard add-in graphics, making it the most powerful visual computing system available. The Quadro Plex 2200 D2 VCS houses up to four Quadro FX 4700 GPUs, powering up to four displays via its dual-link DVI outputs, and up to eight displays with its high-resolution projection capabilities.

The Quadro Plex D Series VCS will be available in September 2008 with prices beginning at $10,750.
