GPU Features
NVIDIA CUDA Architecture
Parallel-computing architecture that tightly integrates advanced visualization and compute features to
significantly accelerate professional workflows.
NVIDIA Scalable Geometry Engine
Dramatically improves geometry performance across a broad range of CAD, DCC and medical applications,
enabling you to work interactively with models and scenes that are an order of magnitude more complex than
ever before.
Large Framebuffers with Ultra-Fast Bandwidth
Large GPU memory with fast bandwidth for display of complex models and scenes, as well as computation of
large datasets.
NVIDIA Parallel DataCache™
Supports a true cache hierarchy combined with on-chip shared memory. L1 and L2 caches drive exception
throughput, accelerating features such as real-time ray tracing, physics, and texture filtering.
Bindless Textures
Dramatically increases the number of unique textures available to shaders at run-time, enabling vastly more
different materials and richer texture detail in scenes.
NVIDIA Streaming Multiprocessor
Delivers more processing performance and efficiency through this new, innovative streaming multiprocessor
design that allows a greater percentage of space to be applied to processing cores versus control logic.
H.264 encoder
Dedicated H.264 encode engine that independent of 3D/compute pipeline and delivers faster than real-time
performance for transcoding, video editing, and other encoding applications (requires application support).
PCI Express 2.0 Compliance
Supports data transfer rate up to 5 GT/sec per lane for an aggregate bandwidth of 16 GB/sec bi-directional (8
GB/sec in each direction.)
Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)
Guarantees forward and backward compatibility with software drivers, simplifying upgrading to a new Quadro
solution whenever you're ready.
Ultra-Quiet Design
Near silent cooling design enables lower acoustics for an ultra-quiet desktop environment.
NVIDIA GPU Boost
Maximum application performance through automatic adjustment of the GPU clock to take maximum
advantage of the power and thermal headroom of the card in real-time.
Image Quality
Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)
Up to 64X FSAA for dramatically reducing visual aliasing artifacts or "jaggies," resulting in unparalled image
quality and highly realistic scenes.
NVIDIA FXAA and TXAA
Reduces visible aliasing and delivers higher image quality without the performance hit by harnessing the power
of the GPU's CUDA cores and new film-style AA techniques.
GPU Tessellation
Quadro Tessellation Engines automatically generate finely detailed geometry for cinematic quality
environments and scenes, without sacrificing performance.
16K Texture and Render Processing
Provides the ability to texture from and render to 16K x 16K surfaces. Beneficial for applications that demand
the highest resolution and quality image processing.
Display Features
NVIDIA Quadro Mosaic Technology
Enables transparent scaling of the desktop and applications across up to 16 displays from 4 GPUs from a
single workstation while delivering full performance and image quality.
Multi-Display Support
The all-new display engine in the NVIDIA GPU drives up to four displays simultaneously, whether they’re
directly connected to the board or connected using a single cable using DisplayPort 1.2’s new multi-streaming
capabilities. With support for the next-generation DisplayPort 1.2 standard, each DisplayPort connector is also
capable of driving ultra-high resolutions like 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz with 30-bit color. The flexible display
connectivity of the Quadro family makes it easy to deploy multiple displays across a desktop, build an
expansive digital signage wall, or create a sophisticated stereoscopic 3D CAVE environment.
NVIDIA NVIEW Advanced Desktop Software
This software delivers maximum flexibility for single large display or multi-display options, providing
unprecedented end-user control of the desktop experience for increased productivity.
DisplayPort 1.2 Support (with Audio)
Compact and secure DisplayPort 1.2 connectors support multi-stream technology, stream cloning and ultrahigh-resolution panels (up to 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz ). This enables maximum range, resolution, refresh rate, and
color depth designed to support the latest display technologies.
NVIDIA 3D Vision
Advanced active shutter glasses that deliver crystal-clear stereoscopic 3D visualization for the most immersive
experience. 3D Vision and 3D Vision Pro are sold separately.
OpenGL Quad Buffered Stereo Support
Provides a smooth and immersive 3D Stereo experience for professional applications.
Deep Color Processing and Display
Preserve color detail and precision throughout the processing and display pipeline for smooth gradients
transitions, even on high dynamic range imagery. Each color component can be processed at up to 32-bit
floating point precision and displayed at up to 12-bit precision with supported DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI 1.4
displays.
Software Support
NVIDIA CUDA Parallel Computing Architecture
Quadro solutions leverage general-purpose GPU computing using standard programming languages like
C/C++ and Fortran, and emerging APIs such as OpenCL and Direct Compute. This broad adoption of CUDA
accelerates techniques like ray tracing, video and image processing, and computation fluid dynamics.
NVIDIA Enterprise-Management Tools
Exhaustive tools for maximizing your system uptime by enabling seamless wide-scale deployment. This allows
remote query and control of graphics and display settings for systems spread across installations.
Multi-GPU Technology
NVIDIA Multi-GPU Technology
NVIDIA Multi-GPU powered workstations combine the visualization and interactive design capability of multiple
