Design, Simulate, and Innovate
AMD FirePro™ professional graphics is certified and optimized for NX and enables advanced CAD/CAM/CAE workflows with high performance and reliability.
Creating a reliable platform for design innovation
From start to finish, creating an efficient product development cycle has never been so critical. Great lengths are taken by many industries – including automotive, aerospace, consumer products and electronics - to create innovative and better quality products. Not only this, many companies face commercial challenges in reducing design and production costs while getting the product as quickly to market as possible.
Many design engineers today rely on NX from Siemens PLM Software, which provides a professional environment to design, manipulate, simulate and analyze product assemblies. High quality, real-time 3D modeling is essential to the entire product development process, with many assemblies having hundreds or even thousands of components. AMD FirePro™ professional graphics cards are designed and built for this purpose, with extensive testing and certifications by Siemens and AMD to ensure the highest level of performance.

Accelerate your simulation with AMD FirePro and OpenCL technology
AMD FirePro™ professional graphics delivers a powerful solution for NX Nastran users to design and simulate on the same workstation. GPU computing provides opportunities to increase application performance by using the massively parallel architecture or modern graphics processors (GPUs).
Enabled by OpenCL™, the AMD FirePro™ GPU can be used to help accelerate calculations in engineering analysis and simulation – tasks traditionally carried out only by CPUs.

Run NX™ from the Security of the Data Center with AMD Multiuser GPU
Staying competitive in today’s global economy means accelerating product innovation and development. The latest release of Siemens PLM Software portfolio introduces capabilities to enable virtualized desktop environments for improved flexibility, performance, and security.
In design and manufacturing today, customers face increased pressure to reduce IT costs, while seeking out ways to improve flexibility, performance, and security. Enterprise companies and large suppliers need to have the ability to get global design teams up and running quickly in new locations, and they need all teams to be able to easily access the latest data and software installation by updating a single server. Virtualization of NX design and engineering applications can help IT managers and global teams accomplish this.
AMD Multiuser GPU (MxGPU) technology brings physical workstation-grade 2D and 3D graphics acceleration to the datacenter. Moving data from local devices to the datacenter eliminates the need to store and transfer multiple copies of that data. This simplifies version control, which boosts productivity and fosters collaboration among local and remote teams. IT departments no longer need to support individual workstations with multiple hardware, OS, and application configurations. Users simply log in to their virtual desktops at any time from any device and receive full workstation performance and GPU acceleration. By supporting and certifying virtual desktops running on AMD MxGPU technology, Siemens PLM Software empowers customers to use their preferred design, engineering or manufacturing solution such as NX™, Tecnomatix®, or Teamcenter®.
Realistic representations of designs in real-time with Advanced Studio
Advanced Studio mode, a feature within NX, provides engineers with a realistic representation of their 3D models by applying complex shadows and lighting in “real-time”, without the need for time-consuming renders. This helps engineers analyse and visualise what the assembly would look like at a much earlier stage of the product development cycle.
However, viewing large assemblies with increased realism puts a higher demand on the GPU, reducing performance, interactivity and application responsiveness. Thanks to the large frame buffer memory and advanced GCN GPU architecture, AMD FirePro graphics cards are able to help increase the visual quality inside the NX modeling.
