Radeon™ Pro workstation graphics delivers a powerful solution for NX Nastran users to design and simulate on the same workstation. GPU computing provides opportunities to increase application performance by using the massively parallel architecture or modern graphics processors (GPUs).
Enabled by OpenCL™, Radeon Pro GPUs can be used to help accelerate calculations in engineering analysis and simulation – tasks traditionally carried out only by CPUs.
Advanced Studio mode, a feature within NX, provides engineers with a realistic representation of their 3D models by applying complex shadows and lighting in “real-time”, without the need for time-consuming renders. This helps engineers analyze and visualize what the assembly would look like at a much earlier stage of the product development process.
However, viewing large assemblies with increased realism puts a higher demand on the GPU, reducing performance, interactivity and application responsiveness. Thanks to the large frame buffer memory and the advances in GPU architecture, Radeon Pro graphics cards are able to help increase the visual quality within NX.
Staying competitive in today’s global economy means accelerating product innovation and development. The latest release of Siemens PLM Software portfolio introduces capabilities to enable virtualized desktop environments for improved flexibility, performance, and security.
In design and manufacturing today, customers face increased pressure to reduce IT costs, while seeking out ways to improve flexibility, performance, and security. Enterprise companies and large suppliers need to have the ability to get global design teams up and running quickly in new locations, and they need all teams to be able to easily access the latest data and software installation by updating a single server. Virtualization of NX design and engineering applications can help IT managers and global teams accomplish this.
AMD Multiuser GPU (MxGPU) technology brings physical workstation-grade 2D and 3D graphics acceleration to the datacenter. Moving data from local devices to the datacenter eliminates the need to store and transfer multiple copies of that data. This simplifies version control, which boosts productivity and fosters collaboration among local and remote teams. IT departments no longer need to support individual workstations with multiple hardware, OS, and application configurations. Users simply log in to their virtual desktops at any time from any device and receive full workstation performance and GPU acceleration. By supporting and certifying virtual desktops running on AMD MxGPU technology, Siemens PLM Software empowers customers to use their preferred design, engineering or manufacturing solution such as NX®, Tecnomatix®, or Teamcenter®.
Superior Productivity with Multiple Displays
Product development workflows have changed significantly over recent years. Working with multiple applications is common in many development workflows with design, simulation, data management and collaboration all happening together.
Radeon™ Pro WX Series graphics cards feature AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology that empowers engineers to view multiple applications and product assemblies across three, four or even six high-resolution monitors all from a single graphics card, at up to 4K x 2K resolution for each output. Users can view designs at ultra-high resolutions for increased design accuracy, realism and better insight, or speed up workflow by using the extra screens to view additional applications.
