3D News

For the last few years we’ve worked with the National Stereoscopic Association to support the 3D Digital Showcase photo competition featured at the NSA’s annual conventions. The images from this past year’s showcase are now live for everyone to view. We really enjoy the diversity of images submitted by 3D artists and enthusiasts to this event, and this gallery is certainly no different. You’ll see everything from close ups of insects to people juggling fire. Simply put,...
In driver 334.89 NVIDIA introduced a new proprietary rendering mode for 3D Vision that enables us to improve the 3D experience for many key DirectX 10 and 11 games. This mode is now called “3D Compatibility Mode”. We have continued to iterate on this feature in driver 344.11, increasing game support and adding some new interface elements. You can get the new driver at www.geforce.com/drivers or via the update option in Geforce Experience. With the release of 344.11, new 3D...
We’re fortunate enough to have another fine 3D video from New Media Film Festival to share with you here on 3DVisionLive—a pop music video from Italy called “The Way,” which you can view here. Even better, New Media Film Festival has provided an interview with one of the co-directors of the video, Edoardo Ballanti, which provides insights on how the video was created and the vision behind it. Enjoy! (Alice Corsi also co-directed the video.) What was the Inspiration behind “...
The Fall Photo Contest received nearly 100 images – thanks to all that entered! The contest called for your best “nature” shots with the only other requirement being that they had to be true stereo images. Submissions ranged from shots of spiders in gardens to artistic approaches to tasteful nudes. As before, members were invited to vote for the winner by tagging images in the contest gallery as favorites. Without further ado, the winner is: Autumn Goodbye to Summer This...
In driver 334.89 NVIDIA introduced a new proprietary rendering mode for 3D Vision that enables us to improve the 3D experience for many key DirectX 10 and 11 games. This mode is now called “3D Compatibility Mode”. We have continued to iterate on this feature in beta driver 337, increasing game support and adding a toggle key to enable/disable the mode. Games with 3D Compatibility Mode will launch in this mode by default. To change the render mode back to standard 3D Vision...

Increasingly businesses are seeing the benefits of enterprise-wide virtualization for all employees. To meet this growing demand, NVIDIA GRID with the Tesla M10 was designed to help IT departments deliver virtualized desktops to all of their employees at an affordable cost

Shipping in volume today, the Tesla M10 provides the industry’s highest user density on a single GPU — 64 users per board, or up to 128 users per server with two boards. Knowledge workers using modern business applications — such as Outlook, Office 2016, web browsers, Adobe Photoshop and the Windows 10 operating system — will enjoy the best virtual user experience available.

Used in combination with the GRID August 2016 release including our new NVIDIA GRID Monitoring, the Tesla M10 gives businesses the most extensive vGPU control and visibility at both the host and guest levels. Together, they provide businesses the actionable insights necessary to fully leverage their investments in graphics-accelerated virtualization.

Today, there are more than 23 certified systems supporting the Tesla M10 from leading vendors, such as Dell, Nutanix and Supermicro.

Early testing has shown the Tesla M10 significantly improves performance across applications, including streaming video, webGL and graphical web apps, compared to CPU-only systems. In addition, it reduces CPU usage up to 18%, freeing up resources for other tasks.(1)

Customers in our early access program are seeing great results as well.

“Our initial testing of the Tesla M10 shows us that we can fit 2x the number of users in one of our GPU servers with no sacrifice in performance,” said Matt Wahl, infrastructure engineer at Autodesk.

NVIDIA GRID with the Tesla M10 will be on display at NVIDIA booth 955 at VMworld, Aug. 29-Sept. 1. The Dell PowerEdge R730 with the Tesla M10 will be in Dell’s booth 1431. To learn more about moving to 100% graphics virtualization in your enterprise, attend our VMworld talks. Follow all the show news at #VMworld.

“Be Tomorrow” is the theme of VMworld 2016, kicking off Sunday in Las Vegas. NVIDIA GRID is fully aligned with that, delivering next-gen virtual workspaces to all workers, today.

We’ll be featuring the NVIDIA GRID August 2016 release with GRID Monitoring and the new Tesla M10, which let enterprises simplify deployments of virtual applications, desktops and workstations to meet all use cases and workloads — whether on-premise or in the cloud.

Swing by NVIDIA booth 955, where we’ll be showing GRID for all virtualized users, including demos of:

  • Modern business applications used by knowledge workers, including Outlook, Office 2016, web browsers, Adobe Photoshop and the Windows 10 operating system on a virtual PC, with the NVIDIA Tesla M10 GPU, delivering over 100 users per server.
  • High-end applications used by engineers and designers, such as AutoCAD, Maya, Google Earth and Solidworks on a virtual workstation, with the NVIDIA Tesla M60 GPU.

To get a full blast of the conference’s future-looking theme, check out the VMvillage, where we’ll be debuting with VMware virtualized VR delivered straight from the cloud. You’ll experience:

  • NVIDIA Iray VR, which provides stunning virtual environments using physically accurate, dynamic panoramas and fully immersive lightfields.
  • Time-lapse renderings created with point cloud capturing the construction of NVIDIA’s iconic new building in Silicon Valley.
  • A collaborative VR design review of a Virtual Formula 1 race car created with Autodesk VRED 3D visualization software.

Practical talks on applications and success stories will provide deep insight into optimizing graphics-accelerated virtual environments, including:

  • “Why Siemens Uses High-Performance Desktops with VMware Horizon and NVIDIA GRID vGPU,” with Pat Lee, vice president of Cloud Apps & Desktops at VMware, and Luke Wignall, manager of Performance Engineering at NVIDIA.
  • “The Latest in High-Performance Desktops and Applications with Horizon 7, Blast Extreme Protocol and NVIDIA GRID vGPU,” with Kiran Rao, director of product management at VMware, and Sean Samenfeld-Specht, R&D manager at VMware.
  • “Windows 10, Office Apps and Graphics Virtualization: Is Your VDI Ready?” by Luke Wignall, manager of Enterprise Performance Engineering at NVIDIA.
