K5000 GPU Performance Features

NVIDIA® CUDA® architecture

Parallel-computing architecture that tightly integrates advanced visualization and compute features to significantly accelerate professional workflows.

NVIDIA® Scalable Geometry Engine

Dramatically improves geometry performance across a broad range of CAD, DCC, and medical applications. This enables you to work interactively with models and scenes that are an order of magnitude more complex than ever before.

Large Framebuffers 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.


Delivers more processing performance and efficiency through this new, 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 (up to 128x with SLI) for dramatically reducing visual aliasing artifacts or "jaggies," resulting in unparalled 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

All-new display engine drives up to four displays simultaneously and supports the next-generation DisplayPort 1.2 features. DisplayPort 1.2 supports enhanced color depth, higher refresh rates and increased resolutions as high as 3840x2160@60Hz or 4096x2160@ up to 48Hz to enable an expansive workspace and boost productivity.

Compact and secure DisplayPort 1.2 connectors support Multi-Stream Technology, Stream Cloning and ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 3840 x 2400) – enabling maximum range, resolution, refresh rate, and color depth designed to support the latest display technologies.

30-Bit Color Fidelity

(10 bits per color). Enables billions of color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range.

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

CUDA Parallel Computing Architecture

NVIDIA 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 is accelerating techniques like ray tracing, video and image processing, and computation fluid dynamics.
