Dec. 13 -- NextComputing, designers of high-performance, portable graphics workstations, announces the addition of NVIDIA's Quadro FX 5600 graphics board by PNY Technologies, Inc. to their line up of ultra high-performance cards offered in conjunction with two of the company's flextop computer models, the NextDimension Evo and Evo HD.
A revolutionary unified architecture, NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 graphics boards deliver optimized application performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set, including largest frame buffers, with a C programming environment, Quadro solutions solve the most complex problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0, the Quadro FX 5600 enables next generation applications with unprecedented image quality. The graphics board was designed to tackle the extreme visualization challenges of the oil and gas exploration, medical imaging, visual simulation/training, scientific research, and advanced visual effects industries. These industry targets align perfectly with NextComputing's own set of solutions for these vertical markets.
The complex medical imaging community can run highly sophisticated, state-of-the-art medical software on NextComputing's NextDimension Evo HD. Utilizing the CPU performance of high performance Intel and AMD processor cores and the GPU performance of NVIDIA's Quadro 5600 by PNY Technologies, Inc., allows health professionals to capture the highest quality, 3D body and brain images, and perform complicated 3D image processing and reconstruction, as well as PACS imaging applications.
The oil/gas industry can utilize the same technology as a portable solution for advanced data analysis and visualization, field quality control, and field processing.
The graphically intensive digital media industry can apply the solution to real-time 3D broadcast graphics, photo-realistic 3D animation, and visual effects rendering, as well as high-resolution video effects processing for post-production.
Military/intelligence communities can utilize the NVIDIA and NextComputing solutions for intelligence or imagery analysis systems, GIS (Geographic Information System), and mobile simulation training platforms.
"Most of our industry targets have a number of applications that are graphically demanding, as well as processor intensive. It is crucial that we continue to provide to our end-users with the performance capabilities of a large stationary workstation, in a much smaller, portable package. The addition of NVIDIA's Quadro 5600 board to our popular NextDimension line, provides the best graphics solution for users who are not willing to sacrifice performance for a smaller system," relates Bob Labadini, President and CTO of NextComputing.
A NextDimension Evo or Evo HD supporting an NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 also includes the following features: Up to two dual-core AMD Opteron processors, 16GB RAM, over 2TB of storage, and internal DVD/RW. The integrated widescreen display (1920x1200) of the Evo HD model allows native HD video playback, and both models support external monitors. NextComputing recently announced enhanced PCI options on both models that include one dual-width PCIe slot and one single-width PCIe slot plus one factory access PCI-X 64-bit /100MHz slot This innovation allows ultra high-end PCI Express graphics boards, such as the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 by PNY Technologies, Inc. to be combined with the newest PCI Express video capture boards such as Blackmagic Design's DeckLink HD Extreme or AJA Video's XENA 2Ke.
NextComputing focuses its attention on mobile, high-performance computing within a specialized set of vertical markets. As this latest innovation demonstrates, the company provides solutions to challenges that arise as technology advances in the industry.
