NVIDIA Quadro K5000 - Professional Graphics Perfected


The NVIDIA Quadro K5000 graphics card takes advantage of the NVIDIA Kepler architecture to dramatically accelerate professional applications. With the NVIDIA Quadro K5000 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.

Designed and built specifically for professional workstations, NVIDIA Quadro GPUs power more than 150 professional applications across a broad range of industries including manufacturing, media and entertainment, sciences, and energy. Professionals trust them to deliver the best possible experience with applications such as Adobe CS6, Autodesk Inventor, Dassault Systems CATIA and SolidWorks, Siemens NX, PTC Creo and many more.





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, enabling 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.


Bindless Textures

Dramatically increases the number of unique textures available to shaders at run-time, enabling vastly more different materials and richer texture detail in scenes.



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.


H.264 Encoder

Dedicated H.264 encode engine that's independent of 3D/compute pipeline and delivers faster than real-time performance for transcoding, video editing, and other encoding applications.


Ultra-Quiet Design

Silent cooling design enables acoustics lower than 28db for an ultra-quiet desktop environment.





Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)

Up to 64X FSAA for dramatically reducing visual aliasing artifacts or "jaggies," resulting in unparalled image quality and highly realistic scenes.



Reduces visible aliasing and delivers higher image quality without the performance hit by harnessing the power of the GPU's CUDA cores and new film-style AA techniques.


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.





NVIDIA Quadro Mosaic Technology

Enables transparent scaling of the desktop and applications across up to 16 displays from 4 GPUs from a single workstation while delivering full performance and image quality.


Quad-Display Support

All-new display engine drives up to four displays simultaneously and fully supports the next generation Display Port 1.2 standard capable of resolutions such as 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz, making it easy to deploy multiple displays across a desktop, build an expansive digital signage wall, or create a sophisticated stereoscopic 3D CAVE environment.


NVIDIA NVIEW Advanced Desktop Software

This software delivers maximum flexibility for single large display or multi-display options, providing unprecedented end-user control of the desktop experience for increased productivity.


DisplayPort 1.2 Support (with Audio)

Compact and secure DisplayPort 1.2 connectors support multi-stream technology, stream cloning and ultra-high-resolution panels (up to 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz ). This enables maximum range, resolution, refresh rate, and color depth designed to support the latest display technologies.


30-Bit Color Fidelity

10-bits per red, green, and blue). Enables billions of color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range.


HD SDI Capture and Output

Industry's only GPU-accelerated solution for real-time acquisition, processing, and delivery of high-resolution SDI video, across traditional and now 3D video broadcast, environments. Supports uncompressed 8-, 10-, 12-bit SDI via available Quadro SDI Capture and Quadro SDI Output cards.


Quadro Sync

Ensures image and frame synchronization between up to four GPUs when running Quadro Mosaic or independent GPUs in cluster. Quadro Sync also allows synchronization to an external timing source (also known as genlock or house sync). Quadro Sync enables advanced visualization systems to scale the resolution of the display surface with multiple projectors or displays with standard applications or applications designed for clusters.


NVIDIA 3D Vision and 3D Vision Pro

Advanced active shutter glasses that deliver crystal-clear stereoscopic 3D visualization for the most immersive experience. Infrared (3D Vision) or RF (3D Vision Pro) technology enable a range of immersive environments from your desktop workstation to collaborative work spaces. 3D Vision and 3D Vision Pro are sold separately.


OpenGL Quad Buffered Stereo Support

Provides a smooth and immersive 3D Stereo experience for professional applications. 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.





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.



NVIDIA GPUDirect capability increases compute performance when data throughput or latency reduction are key considerations by allowing direct access to GPU memory by 3rd-party devices such as SDI video adapters, NICs and SSDs.


NVIDIA GPUDirect for Video

NVIDIA GPUDirect for Video technology allows 3rd party hardware to communicate directly with NVIDIA GPUs. By taking advantage of this new API the historical issues of introducing too much delay or latency are gone. With NVIDIA GPUDirect for Video, devices are fully synchronized and the CPU doesn't waste cycles copying data between device drivers.
