NVIDIA announces Quadro K5000 graphics card


Gadgets Magazine is here at the NVIDIA Press Experience Day here in Bangkok, Thailand, where they just announced the NVIDIA Quadro K5000 for the Asia Pacific market. The NVIDIA Quadro K5000 will support up to four display outputs, so this is ideal for those who are in need of multiple monitors. Its H.264 encoder supports up to a 4096×4096 resolution, so it will also be compatible with the upcoming 4K displays. The card has 4 GB of GDDR5 RAM on a 256-bit memory interface. The new NVIDIA Kepler architecture introduces the concept of bindless textures, which enables the GPU to reference textures directly in memory. Pre-Kepler NVIDIA texture binding models only could support up to 128 simultaneous textures—the Quadro K5000 will support over one million simultaneous textures.

Those in the manufacturing, energy, video and graphic editing and science industries will appreciate the power of the Quadro K5000. No word as to when it will be available in the Philippines yet, but the market retail price is estimated to be in the neighborhood of US$2249 (Php 95,582), so if you’re looking to be on the cutting edge of technology, you might want to save up for when it hits our shores.
