Where To Buy

Overview

You can count on superior interaction when designing with the most complex models, richer scene details and effects for content creation, and faster results when processing massive datasets for scientific exploration. The Quadro K5000 features a range of innovative features, including SMX for increased per-clock throughput of key graphics operations and bindless textures that enable the GPU to reference textures directly in memory. Plus, it supports up to four displays—ideal for driving large-scale visualization solutions.

Easily deploy ultra-high resolution scalable visualization configurations

Easily deploy ultra-high resolution scalable visualization configurations.

You can now drive up to four displays simultaneously and get full support of 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, coupled with a Quadro K5000, 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 Sync, Quadro Mosaic, Quadro Warp/Blend, and GPUDirect.

Interact with greater levels of model complexity in the design workflow

Interact with greater levels of model complexity in the design workflow.

The Quadro K5000’s next-generation streaming multiprocessor (SM) design, called SMX, offers several important architectural changes. These include substantial increases in per-clock throughput of key graphics operations that combine to deliver unprecedented performance and power efficiency. Plus the Quadro K5000 features large frame buffer capacity that lets you work with larger models and assemblies and improves interactive manipulation performance during the design process.

Create richer scene details and effects for content creation

Create richer scene details and effects for content creation.

The NVIDIA Kepler architecture introduces the concept of bindless textures, 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. FXAA and TXAA film-style antialiasing technologies provide outstanding image quality for content creation and design reviews without compromising the interactive experience.
