Built on the ultra-efficient processing power of the NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture -- the world's fastest, most efficient GPU architecture -- the new lineup includes:
"With NVIDIA Kepler GPUs, we can create fully ray-trace rendered images of a bike before we actually build it," said Nick Schoeps, senior engineer at MotoCzysz, a Portland, Ore., engineering firm that designs, builds and races custom electric motorcycles. "Previously we'd rely only on still renders or low-fidelity motion during design reviews. With Quadro Kepler, we can work with highest quality settings always on. That's a huge advantage and something we hadn't been able to do before."
The new cards expand the Quadro technology family -- which includes Quadro K5000, Quadro K5000 for Mac, and the complete Quadro mobile workstation product lineup -- to deliver an unmatched professional application experience, enhanced visual workspace and proven Quadro compatibility and reliability. Features include:
"NVIDIA Quadro with Kepler architecture offers no-compromise workflow acceleration for customers with exacting computing and graphics demands," said Sandeep Gupte, senior director of the Professional Solutions Group at NVIDIA. "Kepler offers a future-safe GPU solution, whether professionals are integrating more realism and physics into their manufacturing designs or dealing with the complex demands of 4K workflows in broadcast and film."
Unleashing Distinctive Capabilities Across Industries
In manufacturing and AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) industries, professionals can work with complete assemblies and visualize more of their designs, with more realism, across a larger display surface. Architects can now harness the compute power of Quadro GPUs to showcase their vision to clients with amazing realism, using physically accurate rendering techniques.
In media and entertainment, content creators can enjoy fast performance and features that enable them to tell dramatic visual stories without interrupting their creative flow. Film editors and animators can work with more interactive visual effects to create richer scenes with more textures and smooth interactivity.
"Our Kepler-based Quadro card driving the Premiere Pro Mercury Playback Engine blew away our Final Cut performance," said Anthony Safarik, editorial supervisor at Stargate Studios, an award-winning production company in South Pasadena, Calif. "With the Quadro K5000 and Adobe Premiere Pro, we eliminated an hour of upfront rendering and another 20 minutes of rendering the linear effect on top of that. That's substantial time savings, especially when a roomful of producers, directors and visual effects supervisors are standing over your shoulder."
Availability and Pricing
The new NVIDIA Quadro products have estimated U.S. retail pricing as follows: Quadro K4000, $1,269; Quadro K2000 and Quadro K2000D, $599; Quadro K600, $199. They are available now from authorized distribution partners, including PNY Technologies in North America and Europe, ELSA in Japan, and Leadtek in Asia Pacific.
Certifications and Support
More than 150 leading software vendors certify and support Quadro-powered workstations, which have earned the reputation as the industry's most recommended and best tuned professional graphics solutions. The world's leading workstation original equipment manufacturers -- including HP, Dell, Lenovo and Fujitsu, plus systems integrators such as BOXX Technologies and Supermicro -- will offer new Quadro-powered workstations.
"HP Workstation customers are professionals at the top of their game, running mission-critical applications that require the best in performance, reliability and innovation," said Jeff Wood, vice president of worldwide marketing, Commercial Solutions Business Unit, HP. "As the workstation industry leader, our graphics-intensive customers demand the type of high-end performance that the NVIDIA Kepler architecture provides."
"Dell Precision workstations are Dell's highest-performing systems with industry-leading dependability and smart design," said Efrain Rovira, executive director, Dell Precision Workstations. "We are pleased to offer NVIDIA's new range of Quadro professional graphics and provide our engineering and design customers even faster graphics performance to enhance their creative workflows."
"Lenovo's ThinkStation workstations embody power and innovation," said Rob Herman, director of Product and Vertical Marketing, Lenovo. "With GPUs running on NVIDIA's Kepler architecture, our customers across product design, medical research, architecture and more can now get their jobs done faster and better than ever before."
