NVIDIA® Quadro® K5000 with NVIDIA Quadro Sync
The NVIDIA Quadro K5000 delivers superior interaction when designing complex models with 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 or for use in multi-device film and video environments.
The NVIDIA Quadro Sync board included as part of this turnkey solution synchronizes up to four NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture-based GPUs and up to 16 displays or projectors per system. Quadro Sync benefits include the ability to keep multi-projector systems or video walls free of imaging artifacts without impacting performance, the ability to align inputs for multi-input display devices like 4K projectors or panels, proper stereoscopic 3D display across multiple systems, and the ability to align displays or projectors to an external timing source. NVIDIA Mosaic™ technology support allows any application to scale across synchronized displays or projectors and offers features like projector overlap and an integrated geometry and intensity adjustment to enable pixel-accurate display surfaces.
