NVIDIA Quadro K5000 with NVIDIA Quadro Sync Overview
The NVIDA Quadro K5000 with NVIDIA Quadro Sync delivers Frame Lock/Genlock and
sophisticated programmable graphics for industrial, visualization and collaborative applications,
by providing features for advanced multi-system visualization and multi-device film and video
environments. This sophisticated professional visualization solution is GPU-driven by the NVIDIA
Quadro K5000, while features such as Frame Lock, Genlock, and synchronized Frame Buffer
Swap and refresh rate are supported by a companion NVIDIA Quadro Sync board.
The Quadro K5000 requires an open x16 PCIe interface slot with an adjacent open slot (doublewidth board). The NVIDIA Quadro Sync board is designed to fit into any available expansion slot
within 6 inches of the NVIDIA Quadro K5000. The Quadro Sync requires power via a 6-pin power
connector or SATA power connector. The Quadro Sync card can host up to four (4) NVIDIA
Quadro K5000 boards.
Frame Lock allows the display channels from multiple workstations to be synchronized, creating
one large “virtual display” that can be driven by a multi-system cluster for performance scalability.
Genlock allows the graphics output to be synchronized to an external source, typically for film and
broadcast video applications.
The NVIDIA Quadro K5000 and NVIDIA Quadro Sync will synchronize up to four displays
simultaneously (2 DVI-DL and 2 DisplayPort), provided they are all in same display mode, which
means the same resolution and refresh rate on all four displays.
NVIDIA Quadro K5000 Overview
The NVIDIA Quadro K5000 graphics board is a PCI Express full-height form factor (4.376 inches
by 10.5 inches) graphics add-in card based on the NVIDIA Quadro K5000 graphics processing
unit (GPU). It is targeted as a high-performance desktop graphics solution for PCI Express
systems. The NVIDIA Quadro K5000 graphics board offers 4GB of GDDR5 GPU memory and
supports display types ranging from analog CRTs to the latest digital flat panels.

Key Feature of Quadro Sync
 Synchronization of up to four Kepler G PU’s and up to 16 display or projector per system.
- Increasing the density of GPU and displays per system reduce the total number of
system in a visualization cluster and minimizes operation complexity.


Enable Mosaic technologies on up to 16 displays or projectors in any system
- Scale any application across synchronized displays or projectors from any system.
Future like Projector Overlap and an integrated geometry and intensity adjustment
give you pixel-accurate display surface

A research lab can create a stereoscopic 3D 3x3 or 4x4 display wall with just one system,
instead of three or four.
A flight simulator can move from HD resolution to four-input 4K projectors with the same
size visualization cluster.
A broadcaster can power 16HD –display video wall for on air display with just one
system.
