NVIDIA Quadro 5000 Image NVIDIA GF100 Image
The Quadro 5000 was a high-end professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in February 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GF100 graphics processor, in its GF100-850-A3 variant, the card supports DirectX 11.0. The GF100 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 529 mm² and 3,100 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 480 Core 512, which uses the same GPU but has all 512 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the Quadro 5000 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 352 shading units, 44 texture mapping units and 40 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 2,560 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 320-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 513 MHz, memory is running at 750 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA Quadro 5000 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1280x720.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro 5000 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 152 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 2x DisplayPort. Quadro 5000 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 248 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 2,499 US Dollars.
