GraphicSpeak Weekly Newsletter
Nvidia’s great leap forward; taking a look at Digital Reality. The GraphicSpeak weekly update.
Nvidia used the venue of its big annual party for GPU programmers to debut a great array of new technology. The Kepler generation of GPU processing power is way more than an upgrade. The new technology is much more energy efficient, much more powerful, and comes with new virtualization technology that will revolutionize the use of GPU technology in cloud computing.
Every few years bits and pieces of new technology find each other and become a new category. Jon Peddie Research sees this happening right now in the interrelationships between 3D printing, LIDAR, 3D laser scanning, and other technologies that allow data to move from part to art and from art to part. Check out Kathleen Maher’s discussion of Digital Reality, along with the rest of our recent coverage from the world of technical graphics in GraphicSpeak.
