Strategic Partners



NVIDIA® is the world leader in visual computing technologies and the inventor of the GPU, a high-performance processor that generates breathtaking, interactive graphics on workstations, desktop computers, game consoles, and mobile devices. NVIDIA serves the professional design and visualization market with its Quadro™ solutions and the entertainment and consumer market with its GeForce® products.

NVIDIA® Professional Solutions Group and Autodesk provide a qualified hardware-software solution to enable professional designers to create and interact with more complex designs, achieving maximum productivity without sacrificing visual quality.

As the desire for realism in designs continues to grow and timeframes for creating content continue to shrink, tools that enable designers to create cutting-edge visuals without compromising schedules continue to rise. NVIDIA® Quadro® allows users to visualize and interact with complex 3D models for faster and easier design creation.

Why Autodesk Professionals Choose Quadro

Many Autodesk applications leverage the Quadro GPU architecture to enable hardware-accelerated features not found in other professional graphics solutions. Featuring a revolutionary unified GPU architecture, Quadro graphics solutions deliver optimized Autodesk application performance for breakthrough, ultrarealistic, real-time visualization.


Experience faster performance with OpenGL applications running on Quadro over consumer graphics solutions. DirectX performance will also have significant improvements with professional applications. With a full range of Quadro solutions available, there is one that will fit most budget requirements.


Unlike our consumer-level GeForce products, NVIDIA doesn’t just design Quadro, we build it. It’s manufactured to NVIDIA’s high standards with our quality-control best practices. By achieving maximum quality, Quadro provides the reliability for mission-critical projects.


Quadro is built for maximum uptime and reliability. NVIDIA’s unified driver architecture ensures compatibility across platforms and hardware configurations.

Testing & Qualification

NVIDIA engineers and software developers engage in a performance-tuning process for Quadro qualification on Autodesk applications. Not only does Quadro meet Autodesk qualification requirements, but testing enables a designer to experience optimal performance.

Autodesk Qualified

NVIDIA has invested substantial engineering hours over the years to provide an optimized Quadro solution for several Autodesk applications. So there is less likelihood that a driver-related software bug will interrupt your workflow and cause downtime. Not only does Autodesk certify and recommend Quadro, but certain advanced features in these applications won’t run optimally without a professional-class GPU like Quadro.
