NVIDIA and key global manufacturers announced new RTX workstations designed for development and content creation in the age of generative AI and digitalization. The systems, including those from BOXX, Dell Technologies, HP, and Lenovo, are based on NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs and incorporate NVIDIA AI Enterprise and NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise software.
NVIDIA also released three new desktop workstation Ada Generation GPUs — the NVIDIA RTX 5000, RTX 4500, and RTX 4000 — which deliver the latest AI, graphics, and real-time rendering technology.
“Few workloads are as challenging as generative AI and digitalization applications, which require a full-stack approach to computing,” said Bob Pette, vice president of professional visualization at NVIDIA. “Professionals can now tackle these on a desktop with the latest NVIDIA-powered RTX workstations, enabling them to build vast, digitalized worlds in the new age of generative AI.”
The new RTX workstations offer up to four NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada GPUs, each equipped with 48GB of memory, and a single desktop workstation can provide up to 5,828 TFLOPS of AI performance and 192GB of GPU memory. Depending on user needs, systems can be configured with NVIDIA AI Enterprise or Omniverse Enterprise to power various demanding generative AI and graphics-intensive workloads.
Also announced today, NVIDIA AI Enterprise 4.0 now includes NVIDIA NeMo, an end-to-end framework for building and customizing foundation models for generative AI, NVIDIA RAPIDS libraries for data science, as well as frameworks, pre-trained models, and tools for building common enterprise AI use cases, including recommenders, virtual assistants, and cybersecurity solutions.
Omniverse Enterprise is a platform for industrial digitalization that enables teams to develop interoperable 3D workflows and OpenUSD applications. As an OpenUSD-native platform, Omniverse enables globally distributed teams to collaborate on full-design-fidelity datasets from hundreds of 3D applications.
“Yurts provides a full-stack generative AI solution aligning with multiple form factors, deployment models, and budgets of our customers,” said Jason Schnitzer, chief technology officer at Yurts. “We’ve achieved this by leveraging LLMs for various natural language processing tasks and incorporating the RTX 6000 Ada. From private data centers to workstation-sized solutions that fit under a desk, Yurts remains committed to scaling our platform and offering alongside NVIDIA.”
Workstation users can also take advantage of the new NVIDIA AI Workbench, available soon in early access, which provides developers with a unified, easy-to-use workspace for creating, fine-tuning, and running generative AI models. Users of any skill level can quickly create, test, and customize pre-trained generative AI models on a PC or workstation and then scale them to virtually any data center, public cloud, or NVIDIA DGX Cloud.
Next-Generation RTX Technology
The new NVIDIA RTX 5000, RTX 4500, and RTX 4000 desktop GPUs feature the latest NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture technologies, including:
- NVIDIA CUDA cores: Up to 2x the single-precision floating point throughput compared to the previous generation.
- Third-generation RT Cores: Up to 2x the throughput of the previous generation with the ability to run concurrent ray tracing with either shading or denoising capabilities.
- Fourth-generation Tensor Cores: Up to 2x faster AI training performance than the previous generation with expanded support for the FP8 data format.
- DLSS 3: New levels of realism and interactivity for real-time graphics with the power of AI.
- Larger GPU memory: The RTX 4000 provides 20GB of GDDR6 memory; the RTX 4500 offers 24GB of GDDR6 memory; and the RTX 5000 boasts 32GB of GDDR6 memory — all supporting error-code correction for error-free computing with large 3D models, rendered images, simulations, and AI datasets.
- Extended-reality capabilities: Support high-resolution augmented-reality and virtual-reality devices to deliver the high-performance graphics required to create stunning AR, VR, and mixed-reality content.
“The NVIDIA RTX 5000 Ada GPU demonstrates NVIDIA’s impressive generational performance improvements — it has significantly increased our efficiency in creating stereo panoramas using Enscape,” said Dan Stine, director of design technology at architectural firm Lake|Flato. “With the performance boost and large frame buffer of RTX 5000 GPUs, our large, complex models look great in virtual reality, which gives our clients a more comfortable and contextual experience.”
RTX workstations featuring up to four RTX 6000 Ada GPUs, NVIDIA AI Enterprise, and NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise will be available from system builders starting in the fall.
The new NVIDIA RTX 5000 GPU is now available from HP and through global distribution partners such as Leadtek, PNY, and Ryoyo Electro. The NVIDIA RTX 4500 and RTX 4000 GPUs will be available in the fall from BOXX, Dell Technologies, HP, and Lenovo and through global distribution partners.
