Earlier today NVIDIA announced its latest enterprise focused GPU, the Quadro GV100, during its GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2018. Now VRgineers, the company behind the VRHero 5K Plus headset has revealed it’ll be recommending the new GPU to clients to ensure the device is pushed to its maximum.
With the Quadro GV100 GPU, complex 3D scenes, high-poly models and high-resolution textures are able to perform smoothly at full refresh rates on the VRHero 5K Plus head-mounted display (HMD), which features 5K resolution and full 24bit RGB colors, together with the unique custom-built optics and 170º FOV.
“Any virtual reality system is only as good as its two major components: the VR headset and the system it runs on. For a no-compromise, professional VR setup with the highest standards for image clarity and capable of handling complex VR projects, both have to be extremely high-performing – the headset providing enough resolution, pixel density, and quality optics to get a clear crisp image and the PC having enough graphics horsepower to render the VR scene fast enough for a smooth experience. VRHero 5K Plus and NVIDIA Quadro GV100 deliver that and thus make a perfect, extremely powerful union,” said Marek Polcak, co-founder and CEO at VRgineers in a statement.
“With the new NVIDIA Quadro GV100, driven by the NVIDIA Volta GPU architecture, our VRHero 5Kenterprise clients will be able to run larger and more sophisticated 3D scenes, use near production-quality models without the need for tedious manual optimization, and enable performance-demanding functions, such as particle simulations or antialiasing in VR,” adds Polcak. “I believe this will dramatically reduce the number of hours invested into the content adaptation and streamline the process for VR in industrial applications.”
“The disruptive potential of virtual reality in the enterprise is immense. VRgineers’ professional headsets powered by the new Quadro GV100 GPU means, for the first time, professionals in industries such as product design, architecture and engineering can conduct realistic simulations where high resolution and overall image quality are key,” said Bob Pette, Vice President, Professional Visualization, NVIDIA.
While VRgineers is currently promoting the VRHero 5K Plus headset to companies interested in VR, it recently announced work on a new generation of VR headset with fully integrated Leap Motion hand-tracking technology. VRFocus will continue its coverage of VRgineers, reporting back with any further announcements.
