"Conventional rendering hardware and high-end virtualization solutions come with a very high price tag", stated Nikola Bozinovic, CEO of Frame. "Our new Pro 64GB offering allows designers to shift to powerful visual workstations on demand. Access to stunning interactive photorealistic rendering has never been easier."
This new option extends the line of Frame configurations, which now range from Air 4GB, a basic virtual computer for running applications like Microsoft Office, to Pro 64GB, a quad GPU-powered visual supercomputer for running heavy graphics loads.
"I'm done with expensive, bulky dedicated rendering hardware. By using Frame, I get the juice I need when I need it, without cooling fans that sound like jet engines taking off in my office - all with direct access to our storage on Dropbox and Box", stated Adam O'Hern, Head of Design at Mechanical Color. "When I don't run apps, I don't have to pay for it. Frame lets me use my Macbook the way I used to use the giant PC tower in my closet. There's no going back."
Subscribers to Frame Standard and Plus plans can now access the Frame Pro 64GB system with the click of a button. Running applications on this new visual supercomputer costs under $4 per hour.
"V-Ray RT is Chaos Group's interactive renderer that can double as a 'production renderer' and is included in V-Ray for 3ds Max and the upcoming V-Ray for Revit", stated Lon Grohs, Chief Commercial Officer at Chaos Group. "By powering V-Ray RT GPU with this super computer on Frame, customers can interactively render on demand from any device as if they're sitting at a $15K workstation."
"Frame customers can enjoy smooth application performance from almost any location on demand with NVIDIA GRID GPUs delivering graphics-rich experiences from the Cloud", stated Jim McHugh, vice president of the NVIDIA GRID business at NVIDIA. "With Frame's powerful, multi-GPU system, users get the benefit of truly interactive rendering, with predictable, more accurate results on their favourite applications."
"KeyShot is a CPU-based real-time raytracing application that allows you to create amazing images from any CAD data in short amounts of time", stated Henrik Wann Jensen, co-founder and Chief Scientist at Luxion. "It is used throughout the world's leading design companies and by thousands of individual artists. While KeyShot is highly optimized to run on any type of computer, Frame allows people to easily tap into many cores when and where people need it, with 6-10x performance gains, as benchmarks have shown."
