Autodesk at NAB 2012


Intel and Autodesk: creating the extraordinary. Together their hardware and software innovations help you expand your creative capabilities, and give you an opportunity to create eye popping comprehensive visual effects almost as fast as you think of them. And the future Intel® Xeon® processor E5-product family being soon will take your creativity to new heights faster than ever before. We have not just added computational cores we are introducing an entirely new data infrastructure with new i/o technologies that accelerate the pace that data is presented to processing cores in our CPU's.

Come visit us: Autodesk Technical Specialists will be at the Intel booth (SL#12810) at NAB 2012 ready to showcase the latest Autodesk Softimage and Maya 2013 software. Here are the details

With Intel® Xeon® processor based workstations you get Intel Intelligent Performance Technology. That means you are "green" when you are not pushing the limits of your creativity and you are powerful and fast when you are. Intelligent performance features include:

  • Intel® Turbo Boost technology which adapts the needs of the software and gets more performance from the processor
  • Intel® hyper threading technology which improves performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow
  • Intel® Smart Cache technology which improves performance and efficiency by increasing the probability that each execution core can access data from a higher-performance, more-efficient cache subsystem

Combined these technologies deliver the most energy efficient performance in a workstation you can find.
