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

Silent cooling design enables lower acoustics for an ultra-quiet desktop environment.

 

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.

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 x2160 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 ultra-high-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.

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.
