The advances in integrated graphics technology over the past 3 generations of products have been significant across Intel's Core® and Xeon® family of products. Those in the computer-aided design and media and entertainment space have seen Intel's HD graphics pave their way into the entry-level workstation market with certification of products, such as AutoCAD®, Inventor®, 3ds Max®, and Maya® software, and improved performance with key benchmarks. By the end of this class, you will have an understanding of how AutoCAD products can take advantage of all the capabilities of the workstation platform in a desktop environment. In addition, you will learn how AutoCAD LT® software can let users be more nimble and help with collaboration and synchronization of drawings while on the go on a tablet with Intel Core® technology. The AutoCAD® 360 mobile app can further simplify sharing by providing integration between the office and the field, enabling anytime, anywhere access with a compute continuum offering from Intel.
