Content creation professionals are constantly being challenged to find new ways to explore and validate more ideas —faster. This often involves creating content with both visual design and physical simulation demands. For example, creating a digital film character and understanding how the character’s clothing moves in an action scene. Unfortunately, the design process has often been disjointed, occurring on different systems or at different times.
Safe Harbor's NVIDIA Maximus-powered TSUNAMI workstations combine the visualization and interactive design capability of NVIDIA Quadro® GPUs and the high-performance computing power of NVIDIA Tesla® GPUs into a single workstation. Tesla companion processors automatically perform the heavy lifting of photorealistic rendering or engineering simulation computation. This frees up CPU resources for the work they are best suited for – I/O, running the operating system and multi-tasking – and also allows the Quadro GPU to be dedicated to powering rich, full-performance, interactive design. With a TSUNAMI workstation featuring NVIDIA Maximus technology, content creation professionals can perform faster video editing, effects and animation.
A Holy Grail for this discipline, in other words, would be real-time rendering and simulation–manipulating the shape and movement of objects while in their final forms. Maximus, NVIDIA says, can essentially do that–representing, Huang said, "the biggest change in the last 20 years for such workstations."

WSJ, Nvidia says "real-time design is finally here"
"Maximus eliminates the rocket science nature of using GPUs. It is a layer of code that manages the relationship between the professional graphics application and the hardware. Out of the gate today there are Maximus-enabled applications and workstations. The list reads like a Who's Who in CAD, CAE, and digital content creation (DCC)."
