PTC CREO®  >   OVERVIEW  |   FEATURES

UP TO 40X FASTER WITH GPU-ACCELERATED FEATURES1

Developed by AMD in close collaboration with PTC, advanced OpenGL optimizations, Vertex Buffer Object (VBO) and Order Independent Transparency (OIT), greatly increase the 3D frame rate and interactivity for large assemblies. These performance benefits exploit the large on-board memory processing of modern GPUs to deliver additional, always-on 3D acceleration with complex mechanical assemblies and advanced multidiscipline workflows. As a result, PTC Creo designers using AMD FirePro™ graphics experience up to 40x faster 3D frame rates than PTC Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0¹, helping them maintain their productivity and creative flow.

At the same time, OIT assembles a “pixel-accurate” representation of the model and its surrounding geometry. This creates a more practical transparent 3D viewpoint for designers to continuously work within, helping improve the designers’ sense of “design intuition” and assisting in better decision-making throughout the product development stages.


OIT fixes visual artifacts caused by inaccurate “depth sorting” of the geometry that often happens in the older “blended mode”. This means some parts of the object are being rendered incorrectly with the old blended mode technology.

UP TO 2.5X FASTER — AMD FIREPRO™ W-SERIES VS NVIDIA QUADRO

AMD FirePro™ workstation graphics cards give PTC Creo Parametric 3.0 users access to features and performance like no other workstation graphics products on the market.

When compared to alternative workstation graphics solutions, PTC Creo 3.0 and AMD FirePro™ graphics can run up to 2.5x faster in the traditional shaded mode.2



SCALABILITY FOR LARGE ASSEMBLIES

The latest AMD FirePro™ professional graphics cards feature support for PCI Express® 3.0, for increased data transfer between the system and the graphics card, helping reduce loading and rendering times of large assemblies. Viewing large assemblies with increased realism puts a higher demand on the GPU, which can reduce performance, interactivity and application responsiveness. Thanks to the large frame buffer memory (up to 16GB) and AMD’s advanced Graphics Core Next (GCN) GPU architecture³, AMD FirePro™ graphics cards can help increase the visual quality inside the modeling environments virtually without any loss of model interactivity. Users no longer have to manage a trade-off between visual fidelity and model complexity.

OPTIMIZED AND CERTIFIED FOR PTC CREO

In order to help ensure optimized performance and compatibility, AMD FirePro™ professional graphics solutions are thoroughly tested and certified by PTC for workstation-class reliability across the suite of PTC applications. When combined with Dell, HP, and other workstations certified by PTC, AMD FirePro™ professional graphics deliver advanced performance, reliability and value: providing an unbeaten user experience for PTC Creo designers.
