New NVIDIA Quadro ‘Kepler’ for professional notebooks: Specs and Features

NVIDIA is distributing its new professional graphics chips based on the Kepler architecture used in next-generation graphics card company, but in this case for professional laptop, these new chips series is NVIDIA Quadro.

NVIDIA Quadro

The family consists of six new models that cover the entire range of power and price and include the Quadro K500M, K1000M, K2000M, K3000M, K4000M and top-end Quadro K5000M, the most powerful graphics chip currently can be mounted in a professional notebook.

All models are manufactured using 28-nanometer process technology and feature support for technologies, languages and APIs such as PhysX, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.0 and Shader Model 5.0. Their objective is usually hardware acceleration exploiting the concept of GPGPU applications.

The model specifications of NVIDIA Quadro are as follows:
