Nvidia has released the Quadro 5000M, a new video card for mobile workstations.
Based on “Fermi” architecture, the Quadro 5000M has 2GB of GDDR5 memory, a 256-bit memory interface, and 320 CUDA cores. It’s “the world’s first professional graphics solution with Error Correction Codes (ECC) memory” for the highest computing accuracy.
The GPU uses CUDA, OpenGL 4.1, DirectX 11, DirectCompute and OpenCL technologies and supports the new Nvidia 3D Vision Pro active shutter-glasses solution.
Mobile workstation laptops with the Nvidia Quadro 5000M are expected to be available in the third quarter of 2010 from HP and Dell.
Nvidia has officially released the GeForce 400M Series dedicated video cards for laptops.
Besides the recently launched GeForce GTX 480M, which is the top of the line model, the 40nm “Fermi” architecture-based 400M series now includes the hgih-performance GTX 470M and GTX 460M, as well as mid-range GT 445M, GT 435M, GT 425M, GT 420M and GT 415M.
The new GPUs support DirectX 11, Nvidia Optimus, CUDA, 3D Vision, and PhysX technologies, and performance-boosting Verde notebook drivers.
According to Nvidia, the GeForce 4xxM series GPUs are up to 40% faster on average than their 3xxM counterparts.
The 400 Series chips will be initially incorporated into laptops by Acer, Asus, Dell, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba.
