Leadtek announces Quadro 4000 for Mac: Excellent graphics performance for the Mac Pro

Taipei, Taiwan, November 22, 2010- If you're an artist, designer, or video professional with a Mac Pro, you can accelerate your entire workflow with the NVIDIA Quadro 4000 for Mac graphics solution that is released today by Leadtek Research Inc., the exclusive workstation partner of NVIDIA in the APAC market. The new Quadro 4000 for Mac delivers excellent graphics performance across a broad range of design, animation and video applications for Mac and Windows. The Quadro 4000 for Mac allows you to do more, faster.

NVIDIA® CUDA™ parallel processing architecture delivers performance gains up to 8X faster when running computationally intensive applications, such as ray tracing, video processing and fluid dynamics simulations. Featuring a new Scalable Geometry Engine™ technology, the Quadro 4000 can process up to 890 million triangles per second, benefiting many geometry-bound applications. With 256 CUDA parallel processing cores and 2GB GDDR5 graphics memory for real time processing of large textures and increased interactivity on large projects, memory bandwidth of 89.6 GBps delivers high throughput for demanding applications, such as interactive 3D architectural walkthroughs.

Built on the innovative NVIDIA Fermi architecture, the latest Quadro offerings are the first professional-class GPUs to integrate high performance computing capabilities with advanced visualization techniques, transforming modern workflows. For running mission-critical applications, the Quadro 4000 features fast 64-bit double precision floating point capabilities for accurate results from medical imaging to computer-aided engineering applications. The Quadro 4000 for Mac unleashes the power of Adobe Creative Suite 5 for blazing-fast performance and fluid interactivity when editing HD videos, creating visual effects and enhancing digital images. It also accelerates the conceptual design process in Autodesk Alias industrial design products.

Quadro 4000 for Mac features NVIDIA® CUDA™ Parallel Computing Architecture, enabling real-time simulation, analysis and visualization of large 4D datasets and models. It frees up your CPU for other tasks by offloading computationally-intensive activities to the GPU. It also offers support for CUDA through high-level standard programming languages, such as C, C++, Fortran, and GPU-computing APIs, such as OpenCL and DirectX Compute.
