Maxwell Memory Architecture
Improved caching effectiveness and significant enhancements in memory compression techniques in Maxwell reduces traffic and provides higher performance for applications dependent on memory bandwidth. Additionally, Maxwell’s dedicated shared memory per SM (separated from the L1 cache) and larger L2 cache, dramatically improves programmability and efficiency.
Dedicated hardware to automatically broadcast input geometry to render to multiple render targets which drastically speeds up ‘multi projection’ (the ability of rendering the same scene from multiple view) leading to accelerated rendering for cube maps used in multi view projectors and 3D CAVE environments.
Enhancements to voxel handling techniques enables fast voxelization which significantly accelerates workflows like fluid simulation and 3D Printing.
Virtualizes texture sizes enabling applications to seamlessly work with large and complex data sets regardless of the available frame buffer.
Multiple Copy Engines
Enables the highest rates of parallel data processing and concurrent throughput between the GPU and host, accelerating techniques such as ray tracing, color grading and physical simulation.

Practically all broadcast and film production environments today incorporate real-time graphics in their broadcasted content to enhance, analyse or animate normal video material. This requires strong systems able to product graphics quickly enough for live TV, as well as to combine the two different signals - graphics and video.

You’d be right to think that it’s possible to carry out basic video editing on any modern PC running Windows XP - straight out of the box. XP includes the Windows Movie Maker video-editing program and, although it lacks frills, it does what it does quite well.

If you’re the least bit interested in graphics cards, we’re sure that you’ve heard the terms SLI and CrossFire bandied about recently. Touted as a means of achieving maximum 3D performance by, effectively, using two or more graphics cards in tandem, multi-GPU technology is here to stay. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look SLI and CrossFire; the two competing multi-GPU solutions from NVIDIA and ATI Technologies, respectively.

Explaining how a modern GPU works in completeness would take a book. Or two. Per class of chip. Per vendor. They’re extraordinarily complex pieces of engineering and production, and the end result contains more transistors than multiple modern x86 processors.
