It turns out that SolidWorks 2015 works up to 79% faster on NEW QUADROs than its previous generation, while allowing engineers to put 2x larger SolidWorks models into the graphic card memory. So by simply upgrading your graphic cards to NEW QUADRO - you may get an instant increase in SolidWorks performance even on your current workstation.

NVIDIA Tesla K80


Introducing the NVIDIA® Tesla® K80 Dual-GPU Accelerator, the world's fastest accelerator for complex data
analytics and scientific computing applications.

It has double the memory and memory bandwidth and is 80% faster than its predecessor. Plus, it outperforms CPUs by up to 10x on hundreds of applications, and leverages NVIDIA GPU Boost™ technology to dynamically maximize performance based on workloads. The dual-GPU Tesla K80 is the newest addition to the Tesla accelerated computing platform which is at the center of the industry's most comprehensive ecosystem for accelerated computing.

CPU: 12 cores, E5-2697v2 @ 2.70GHz. 64GB System Memory, CentOS 6.2. GPU: Single Tesla K80, Boost enabled or Single Tesla K40, Boost Enabled



NOVATTE M702 is tested to be almost 2 times faster than HP Z420 for SolidWorks!

Yes, now it’s confirmed that NOVATTE M702 is the Asia’s Fastest Workstation for SolidWorks!


We used official SolidWorks Performance Test for the benchmark. We took HP Z420 configuration that is recommended by HP to the SolidWorks users. We simply matched Z420s specs for M702 and ran the SolidWorks official benchmark test. Take a look at the result: 

Processor 4.4GHz 3.7GHz
Memory 16GB 16GB
Graphic card NVIDIA Quadro K2000 NVIDIA Quadro K2000
Data drive 1TB 1TB
Results: M702 is almost twice as fast as HP Z420!
Overall 46.2 sec 85.8 sec
CPU 25.6 sec 47.0 sec
Graphics 7.5 sec 11.7 sec
I/O 13.1 sec 27.1 sec
Render 6.7 sec 21 sec



The outstanding M702 architecture makes M702 to bit Z420 on all parameters! What does it mean for the companies that use SolidWorks for product development and modeling?


5 reasons to change your workstation to NOVATTE M702 for SolidWorks


1. M702 increase your productivity by 85%
Your engineers can now perform exactly the same job but 85% faster! Faster project execution --> more projects finished in the same time frame --> more revenue to the company!

2. Pays for itself
To illustrate advantage of NOVATTE M702 eXXtreme Workstation let’s take a look on a typical workflow of a SolidWorks designer who currently uses HP Z420 with E5-1620v2 3.7GHz processor. 

Let's assume it takes on average 5 minutes for designer to open an assembly and designer opens an assembly 6 times a day. Let’s also assume that designer needs to rebuild assembly 6 times a day and each time it takes 5 minutes per rebuild. This workflow generates 60 minutes (1 hour) of waiting time each day.

Finally, let’s assume that your SolidWorks designer has 3-4 year of experience and his monthly salary is $7,000 ($36.5 per hour).

1. Every year you pay your SolidWorks engineer $10,512 for just waiting!
24 working days x 1 hour waiting time x $36.5 = $876 / month
$876 x 12 months = $10,512 / year

2. Because M702 is 85% faster than HP Z420, you can save up to $4,830 every year by simply changing your infrastructure to M702s
$10,512 - ($10,512 / 1.85) = $4,830

3. Total savings for 3 years (assuming useful life of workstation is 3 years) by adopting M702 will reach $14,490
$4,830 x 3 = $14,490 total 3Y savings

Can you imagine, that by simply changing your “one-size-fit-all” workstations to NOVATTE M-series products you get their full price back in much less than 3 years?


3. Comes with NOVATTE Legendary technical support
We know exactly what NOVATTE product you use with what software. When you call NOVATTE for the support – you straight away get to the leaving and breathing engineer, who will immediately be able to address your issues. 

4. Always in stock
Because our products have a single architecture, we almost always have them in stock. Forget about long lead times, get your hands on NOVATTE workstation tomorrow!

5. Made in Singapore!

Made-in-Singapore Last but not least - NOVATTE engineering, sales, manufacturing and support are all located in Singapore, ensuring that 100% of your money stays in Singapore and works for Singapore economy.

Faster new generation of QUADRO cards announced today by NVIDIA.

Today NVIDIA announced its new line of QUADRO cards for professional graphics.

The new generation of cards has powerful graphics to allow faster and smother 3D modeling, has higher memory to allow more scene data to store on card, has more CUDA cores to improve render times and natively support 4K displays + SYNC to eliminate motion artifacts in multi-display large-scale installations.

New QUADRO GPU cards performance difference:


What is interesting though is that Quadro K620 and K2200 are build on a new “Maxwell” architecture, while K420, K4200, and K5200 are featuring and improved trusted “Kepler” architecture. We have already updated QUADRO lineup on our website, you may find all the essential performance figures there. 

Even though NVIDIA announced the cards today, the cards will only arrive to NOVATTE in late September – earlier October.

As the new generation QUADRO are in high demand, plan your acquisition in advance to beat the queue and receive it among the first in the market.
