NVIDIA Quadro K5000 Launches For Apple Mac Pro Users

NVIDIA has released their fastest Quadro card to date for Apple’s Macintosh systems, the Quadro K5000. Sporting a list of features and enhancements the card delivers unprecedented visualization and computation capabilities for designers and digital content creators. Key features of the Quadro K5000 GPU for Mac include Cinema 4k display support (4096×2160), new display engine that is capable of driving up to four displays and 4GB of graphics memory to name a few. In general the NVIDIA Quadro K5000 is an ideal solution for professional applications like video editing, compositing, ray-traced 3D rendering and more. That said, its not just usable with Macs either, the Quadro K5000 retains it’s full performance and features when using Apple Boot Camp and running Windows-based versions of the same applications.
