NVIDIA announces several new Quadro accelerators

The US GPU maker NVIDIA has announced a number of new professional graphics adapters that traditionally belong to the Quadro family. The announcement comes very shortly after AMD released a few new FirePro adapters and it seems that both new families have arrived to directly compete against each other.

The new NVIDIA adapters carry the Quadro K5200, K4200, K2200, K620 and K420 brand names and they include the two latest GPU families – Maxwell and Kepler. The Quadro K5200 and K4200 as well as the K420 are Kepler-based units, while the Quadro K2200 and K620 are based on Maxwell chips.

The specs list is rather long but we will mention it here – the Quadro K5200 comes with 2304 CUDA cores that operate at 650 MHz. The installed 8 GB of GDDR5 memory runs at 6000 MHz and a 256-bit bus transfers data between the GPU and the VRAM memory. The card needs 150 watts of power and reaches 3.1 TFLOPS.

The Quadro K4200 comes with 1344 CUDA cores and has 4 GB of memory that uses a 256-bit memory bus and operates at 5400 MHz. The installed GPU runs at 780 MHz; the card needs 105 watts of power and reaches 2.1 TFLOPs.

The Quadro K2200 offers 640 stream processors at 1000 MHz and 4 GB of GDDR5 memory at 5000 MHz. There’s also a 128-bit memory bus. The card needs 68 watts of power and reaches 1.3 TFLOPS.

The Quadro K620 has 384 CUDA cores at 1000 MHz, 2 GB of GDDR3 memory at 1800 MHz and a 128-bit memory bus. The card uses 45 watts of power and reaches 0.8 TFLOPS.

The Quadro K420 is the slowest of them all – it has 192 CUDA cores at 780 MHz, 1 GB of GDDR3 memory at 1800 MHz and a 128-bit memory bus. The card needs 41 watts of power and reaches 0.3 TFLOPS.

All new Quadro cards support NVIDIA FXAA and TXAA technologies as well as DirectX, OpenGL and OpenCL. The new generation is up to 40 per cent faster than the previous one.

The prices of the new professional adapters were not unveiled.
