With Creo 2.0 PTC wanted to offer you flawless graphics performance, so we went to the best sources on the market. Hundreds of hours of joint collaboration and development between AMD and PTC have resulted in a graphics card that enhances all the fine little points of your designs. In this video, Demir Ali discusses how Creo impacts the product design process.
The technologies built into the new AMD FirePro graphics cards that can designers get the most out of Creo 2.0. Here are a couple quick descriptions of those technologies.
Fixing visual artifacts
OIT – Order Independent Transparency – is a feature that uses ultra-fast, GPU-accelerated OpenGL functions that provide up to 900%+ faster 3D frame rates than Wildfire 5.0. With OIT’s “pixel-accurate” representation of the model and surrounding geometry, the designer can visualize better the true reality of the design and make better decisions during product development.
The older blended mode technology sometimes caused parts of the object to be rendered incorrectly. OIT fixes this problem, and fixes other visual artifacts as well.
Improving 3D frame rate and interactivity
VBO – Vertex Buffer Object are advanced OpenGL optimizations that increase the 3D frame rate and interactivity for Creo Parametric 2.0. VBO exploits the on-board memory processing of modern GPUs for faster 3D acceleration with advanced datasets and workflows. What this works out to is 400%+ faster performance with complex datasets that keeps your computer up to speed with you creative mind.
Finally, AMD graphics cards are Creo certified. That means PTC thoroughly tests and certifies these graphics cards for workstation-class reliability across Creo’s suite of applications, to give you the best user experience in your product design process.
