Nvidia has announced that its latest Maximus workstation platform will come powered with the Kepler GPU architecture.
Maximus's Kepler-powered GPU will allow for workstations to streamline graphical processes using a technique called "dynamic parallelism". The Kepler architectures will be housed in the workstation's Tesla K20 and the Quadro K5000 hardware.
By housing the two GPUs on the Maximus, users will be able to run intense graphical virtualization demands on the Quadro and free up the computational background work for the Tesla card.s.
Nvidia says the card's diverse nature can help any company that requires intense graphical power from their workstations.
"Nvidia Maximus technology already dramatically accelerates workflows by simultaneously performing complex analysis and visualization on a single machine," Nvidia's senior PR manager Mark Priscaro in a blog posting.
"So, customers as diverse as visual effects studios to automotive parts makers can experience the most incredible results ever, with unparalleled performance and efficiency."
The biggest addition to the Maximus platform is the Kepler architecture inside its GPU's.
Kepler architecture was unveiled earlier this year. It sets itself apart from older Nvidia architectures because of a technique called "dynamic parallelism."
This allows it to create its own GPU streaming cores instead of having to communicate with the CPU for each new core.
Nvidia says "dynamic parallelism" will speed up graphical rendering and reduce a system's reliance on the CPU.
The next iteration of the Maximus workstation platform will be available in December of this year.
Nvidia has had a busy 2012 so far. The hardware heavyweight also unviled its VGX platform earlier this year. Nvidia's VGX platform looks to virtualise GPU resources and take hardware accelerated graphics to the cloud.
