The Quadro GPU Advantage

NVIDIA Quadro graphics boards use parallel processing to break down complex visual computing problems such as processing and visualizing the raw data provided by CT, ultrasound, MRI and PET scans into many smaller tasks that run simultaneously (in parallel). Where contemporary CPUs have anywhere from 2 to 22 cores, Quadro GPUs suitable for life sciences or medical use offer anywhere from 640 to 5120 CUDA cores – and products like the Quadro RTX even offer Tensor cores optimized for AI (Deep learning) or RT cores designed for realtime 3D visualization. The massive core count increase allows GPUs to run vital tasks in parallel at far greater speed than any conceivable CPU can offer, across a broad spectrum of medical imaging technologies and life sciences research applications. With their large on-board graphics memory and rigorously optimized and tested software drivers, Quadro GPUs are the engines that power the world’s most sophisticated medical imaging solutions. These same powerful features also make them ideal for many essential life sciences research applications necessary to enable breakthroughs in basic research or speeding the drug discovery and development process.

NVIDIA Quadro Innovation

Today, NVIDIA continues to innovate across an even broader range of technologies critical to the future of healthcare. This includes everything from helping doctors deliver more accurate diagnosis with AI, optimizing patient dosage, analysing massive cohort studies with deep learning, and empowering medical imaging system providers and healthcare software developers to deliver higher productivity solutions. GPUs also enable AR or VR assisted robotic surgery, bring sophisticated AI-based diagnostic tools to mobile devices, and accelerate time from insight to discovery and drug development and regulatory approval.
