NVIDIA Quadro K4000

The NVIDIA Quadro K4000 has 3GB of onboard memory, multi-monitor support and stereo capability in a single-slot configuration.

Nvidia has announced a line of Nvidia Quadro professional graphics products that offers unprecedented workstation performance and capabilities for professionals in manufacturing, engineering, medical, architectural, and media and entertainment companies. Built on the Nvidia Kepler architecture, the next-generation streaming multi-processor engine (SMX) offers up to 50 per cent faster visualisation performance and twice the compute horsepower of previous-generation products. The company also said that the larger, faster on-board GPU memory allows designers and animators to work with larger models and richer scenes while maintaining smooth interactivity during design, visualisation and simulation.

The portfolio includes the Nvidia Quadro K4000, a high-end card that the company said delivers blazing-fast performance for graphics-intensive applications, has 3GB of on-board memory, multi-monitor support and stereo capability in a single-slot configuration; Nvidia Quadro K2000, a midrange card that comes with 2GB of on-board memory to hold large models and multi-monitor support for enhanced desktop productivity; Nvidia Quadro K2000D, a variant of the Quadro K2000, with native support for two dual-link DVI display connectors for interfacing with ultra-high-resolution medical imaging displays; and Nvidia Quadro K600, an entry-level card with great performance and certifications for leading professional applications, equipped with 1GB of on-board memory and comes in a low-profile design for maximum usage flexibility.

The devices feature exclusive Nvidia fast approximate anti-aliasing (FXAA) and Nvidia temporal anti-aliasing (TXAA) technologies that Nvidia said deliver stunning movie-style image quality and realism while maintaining a fully interactive experience compared to traditional approaches. They also support up to four displays from a single card, enabling desktop workspace expansion for higher productivity and dramatically simplified deployment of display walls and immersive display environments.

The NVIEW Desktop Management Software aims to boost personal productivity with multi-display setups through intuitive window management, virtual desktops and application management. Additionally, the products can perform scale-up computation using the second generation Nvidia Maximus platform, which pairs the Quadro card with an Nvidia Tesla K20 GPU compute card. Lastly, the devices can easily scale applications to higher resolution using Nvidia Mosaic technology, which combines up to 16 displays as a single large display.

The Nvidia Quadro products have estimated U.S. retail pricing as follows: Quadro K4000, $1,269; Quadro K2000 and Quadro K2000D, $599; Quadro K600, $199.
