GPU Features

NVIDIA CUDA Architecture
Parallel-computing architecture that tightly integrates advanced visualization and compute features to significantly accelerate professional workflows.
NVIDIA Scalable Geometry Engine
Improves geometry performance across a broad range of CAD, DCC and medical applications, enabling you to work interactively with models and scenes that are an order of magnitude more complex than ever before.
Large Framebuffer with Ultra-Fast Bandwidth
Large GPU memory with fast bandwidth for display of complex models and scenes, as well as computation of large datasets.
Dual 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.
NVIDIA SMX
Delivers more processing performance and efficiency through an innovative streaming multiprocessor design that allows a greater percentage of space to be applied to processing cores versus control logic.
Ultra-Quiet Design
Silent cooling design enables acoustics lower than 28db for an ultra-quiet desktop environment.

Image Quality

Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)
Up to 64X FSAA for dramatically reducing visual aliasing artifacts or "jaggies," resulting in unparalleled image quality and highly realistic scenes.
GPU Tessellation with Shader Model 5.0
Quadro Tessellation Engines automatically generate finely detailed geometry for cinematic-quality environments and scenes, without sacrificing performance.
16K Texture and Render Processing
Provides the ability to texture from and render to 16K x 16K surfaces. Beneficial for applications that demand the highest resolution and quality image processing.

Display Features

Quad-Display Support
The intuitive display engine drives up to four displays simultaneously and fully supports the DisplayPort 1.2 features. DisplayPort 1.2 supports enhanced color depth, higher refresh rates, and increased resolutions as high as 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz or 4096 x 2160 at 48 Hz, to enable an expansive workspace and boost productivity.
30-Bit Color Fidelity
Enables billions of color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range. (10-bits per red, green, and blue)
Professional 3D Stereo Synchronization
Enables robust control of stereo effect through a dedicated three-pin mini-din connection to directly synchronize 3D stereo hardware to Quadro graphics card.

Software Support

NVIDIA CUDA Parallel Computing Architecture
Quadro solutions leverage general-purpose GPU computing using standard programming languages like C/C++ and Fortran, and emerging APIs such as OpenCL and Direct Compute. This broad adoption of CUDA accelerates techniques like ray tracing, video and image processing, and computation fluid dynamics.

        Comments about PNY Technologies NVIDIA Quadro K5000 for Mac Display Card:

        I bought this graphics card to replace my GeForce GTX 680 in my 2010 Mac Pro. I do a lot of video editing and I wanted to reduce my render & compression times. This card is more than 2x the cost of the 680 but it had very similar performance in the areas of rendering & compressing video. I returned it and am still using the 680. I suppose if I were doing a lot of 3D modeling with light ray tracing then I may have noticed a difference between the cards. On the positive side installation was straightforward. It required only one internal power cable (unlike the 680 which requires both of the two internal power cables in my Mac Pro) so I suppose that I could have had two of these cards running simultaneously for double the performance (at nearly 6x the cost of my one 680).

          Comments about PNY Technologies NVIDIA Quadro K5000 for Mac Display Card:

          I had a nVidia Quadro 4000 for a couple of years and the new K5000 blew it out of the water in every way. The K5000 worked flawlessly out of the box and into my Mac Pro. I use SSD in my Mac Pro with 64 gigs of ram - powering 2 27 inch screens and running Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. The acceleration in those programs were very noticeable. My render times were cut in half and then some. This was a great upgrade and purchase.

              We bought this product specifically for 3D work through blender. We had some trouble initially when the program kept crashing but a quick internet search led us to run the card off OS10 Driver. That fixed it and now it cuts like butter!
