KISTI Supercomputing Center Powers High-Definition Visual Computing with NVIDIA Quadro Graphics

Publish date:

NVIDIA Corporation, the world leader in visual computing technologies and the inventor of the GPU, today announced that the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) Supercomputing Center has selected NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5600 graphics cards to power the visual computing performance in its 146-computing node, high-definition visualization system. “NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards are the only solutions for the most powerful 3D visualization systems,� says Dr. Joong-kwon Kim, director of KISTI Supercomputing Center. “Our customers will now be able to take advantage of Quadro® graphics cards to increase their productivity for faster complex visual computing challenges such as manufacturing, design, scientific research and simulation.� NVIDIA Quadro graphics are engineered to deliver professional graphics performance for advanced visualization, medical imaging, scientific computing, digital film production, and HD broadcasting. With features such as a unified architecture, which dynamically allocates the workload to vertex or pixel shaders, Shader Model 4.0 technology for better photorealistic effects, GPU computing for complex visualization problems, and massive frame buffers for interactive visualization of large datasets, NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards pair impressive image quality with outstanding performance. Koo Gee Bum, at KISTI explains why the Center selected NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 to optimize the high-performance visuals: “We first considered using a less-powerful graphics card to drive our large-scale visualization system, but we soon realized that achieving advanced performance would require an advanced graphics solution. The obvious choice was NVIDIA Quadro graphics. With Quadro graphics cards in our systems, we achieve far superior performance over general-use graphics and can deliver an outstanding visual experience for the Center.� “Designed to provide the high-speed graphics performance required for challenging applications, NVIDIA Quadro graphics are being chosen by professionals worldwide for a variety of workstation and visual computing systems.� says Walter Mundt-Blum, vice president World Wide Sales, NVIDIA Professional Solutions Group. “NVIDIA is fully committed to support and help developers and scientists at the KISTI Supercomputing Center to continue solving the complex and difficult challenges in visualization.� For more information about NVIDIA Quadro FX Series, please visit
