Maxwell Streaming Multiprocessor
The heart of Maxwell’s power efficient performance is its newly designed Streaming Multiprocessor which delivers incredible performance and unmatched power efficiency, through an improved instruction scheduler and new data path organization.
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 to render the same scene from multiple views) leading to accelerated rendering for cube maps used in multi-view projectors.
Virtualizes texture sizes enabling applications to seamlessly work with large and complex data sets regardless of the available frame buffer.
Enhancements to voxel handling techniques enables fast voxelization which significantly accelerates workflows like fluid simulation and 3D Printing.
Optimizes GPU utilization by dramatically reducing CPU-GPU interactions, enabling developers to implement more sophisticated and complex algorithms providing end users greater performance and higher levels of visual fidelity.
