POWERING CREATIVITY AND VISUALISATION

Create the future from anywhere

 

Machine aided visualisation is taking on new importance for British industry. Today, the design, architecture, manufacture and creative industries account for almost 20% of SMEs operating in the UK. And most have a need for reliable graphics cards with high-end GPU performance to increase output and efficiencies.

Machine availability during the outset of the Covid 19 pandemic has meant that the sudden shift from workstation to laptops, has left thousands of creative professionals operating on sub-standard machines with sub-standard graphics cards.

In partnership with NVIDIA and HP, we’ve created the below guide to help you understand how to identify and provide solutions for those needs.

 
 

NVIDIA RTX™

Powerful graphics cards

NVIDIA’s innovative professional solutions are made possible by NVIDIA RTX™. These high-performance graphics cards enable businesses and professionals to produce better output. NVIDIA RTX™ provides the power and performance for computer-aided design, digital content creation and computer-generated imagery software and applications that rely heavily on AI and resource-draining processes.

NVIDIA RTX™ LAPTOPS

Performance visualisation for laptops

Powerful and portable graphics that give the user enterprise-grade reliability meaning that they’re as productive on the go as they would be with a traditional workstation.

Z by HP devices complete with an NVIDIA RTX™ graphics card enable users to execute complex visualisations and simulate true-to-life graphics without having to be anchored to the desk.

 

AVAILABLE HP DEVICES POWERED BY NVIDIA RTX™

 

Z by HP devices equipped with NVIDIA RTX™ graphics cards deliver true graphics power. Why? Because HP understand the demands its users put on their devices. NVIDIA RTX™ and Z by HP enable creative pros, data scientists and architects alike to be at their most productive, no matter how demanding their workflow. Perfectly capable of running multiple applications simultaneously with no loss of performance or fidelity.
