SANTA CLARA, CA — Nvidia has introduced a range of new Quadro professional graphics products designed for use in workstations. Built on the efficient processing power of the company’s Kepler GPU architecture, the lineup includes products for high-end, mid-range and entry-level users.

The Quadro K4000 ($1269) is a new high-end card that delivers fast performance for graphics-intensive applications. The K4000 has 3GBs of onboard memory, multi-monitor support and stereo capability in a single-slot configuration. 

The Quadro K2000 ($599) is a midrange card that offers powerful performance for a broad range of professional applications. The K2000 comes with 2GBs of onboard memory to hold large models and multi-monitor support for enhanced desktop productivity. 

The Quadro K2000D is a variation of the K2000, and offers native support for two dual-link DVI display connectors for interfacing with ultra-high-resolution displays. 

And for those looking for an entry-level card with good performance, the Quadro K600 ($199) is equipped with 1GB of onboard memory. It comes in a low-profile design for maximum usage flexibility.

Nvidia also offers the existing, high-end K5000 and K5000 for Mac, as well as a Quadro mobile workstation product line.

“Nvidia Quadro with Kepler architecture offers no-compromise workflow acceleration for customers with exacting computing and graphics demands,” explains 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.”

The new Quadro products can be paired with the Nvidia Tesla K20 GPU to expand the range of configurations available with the Nvidia Maximus platform, giving pros the ability to match the solution to their workflow.
