NVIDIA Quadro K5000: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro K5000

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro K5000 sales 17 August 2012 at a recommended price of $2,499. This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 172.8 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 122 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 20.63 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
