The NVIDIA Quadro K5000M is a high-performance graphic card for mobile workstations wit 1344 CUDA cores. The Quadro K5000M is specially made for the Intel Chief River generation (Ivy Bridge). It is another successor to the Fermi-based Quadro 5010M (Huron River platform). This graphic card is a Kepler-based GPU that built on the GK104 chip. It is manufactured in 28nm at TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) architecture from NVIDIA. The Quadro series like NVIDIA Quadro K5000M ensures the optimized for performance in professional applications like CAD or DCC.
The NVIDIA Quadro K5000M supports simultaneously up to 4 active displays. Even it supports high resolution monitors of up to 3840×2160 pixels that can be connected using DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI 1.4a. HD-Audio codecs, such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD, can be transmitted via bitstream mode through the HDMI port. According to NVIDIA, the power consumption of the Quadro K5000M is computed at 100 Watt, because of this it is adjusted for large notebooks with 17-inch displays or greater.
