Quadro for Desktop Workstations
Where to Buy

Designed and Built Specifically for Professional Workstations

The new line of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs (Quadro K6000, K5000, K5000 for Mac, K4000, K2000, K600, and 410) is equipped with a wide range of key features to accelerate your workflow. These features include:

Greater model complexity in the design workflow

Next-generation streaming multiprocessor (SM) design, called SMX, offers several important architectural changes. You can realize substantial increases in per-clock throughput of key graphics operations that combine to deliver unprecedented performance and power efficiency. Plus, the new Quadro solutions offer up to 4 GB frame buffer capacity, letting you work with larger models and assemblies and improving interactive manipulation performance during the design process.

Ultra-high resolution visualization

You can now drive up to four displays simultaneously and get full support for the next-generation DisplayPort 1.2 standard—capable of resolutions of 3840x2160 at 60 Hz. This makes it easy to deploy multiple displays across a desktop, build an expansive digital signage wall, or create a sophisticated stereoscopic 3D CAVE environment. NVIDIA's latest technologies give you an easy, affordable way to perform image synchronization and resolution scaling of a synchronized display surface with multiple projectors or displays. These technologies include Quadro Sync², Quadro Mosaic, Quadro Warp/Blend, and GPUDirect³.

Richer scene details and effects

The NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture introduces the concept of bindless textures¹, which enables the GPU to reference textures directly in memory. This effectively eliminates the limit on the number of unique textures that can be used to render a scene, and reduces the CPU overhead to deliver improved performance. In fact, over one million unique textures are now possible. Fast approximate anti-aliasing (FXAA) and temporal anti-aliasing (TXAA)¹ film-style technologies give you outstanding image quality for content creation and design reviews without compromising the interactive experience.
