5 out of 5 eggsThe Quadro K5000 is one of the best graphics cards for workstations

This review is from: PNY VCQK5000-PB NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 HDCP Ready Workstation video card

Pros: The Quadro K5000 is one of the best Workstation GPU on the market , "after the K6000 since then ." You can dramatically increase their performance with a Tesla K20 Maximus 2 configuration. In fact, a Maximus 2 ( Quadro + Tesla K20 K5000 ) configuration is more powerful than a single K6000 card. At least that 's what he told me Quadro technician at a technical consultation on the website of Nvidia.

The Quadro 1536 CUDA Cores K5000 has the memories are fast , it is efficient in energy consumption, their drivers are stable , finally a card is tailored for CG artists . It is very stable and quick in handling millions of polygons in 3ds Max as it has 4GB . In VRay 2.4 regenerates quickly and in real time , runs smooth and stable . Models instantly regenerate VRay RT ( I imagine if you do not want to add a Tesla K20 ) .

In addition, the CUDA technology is fully compatible with VRay , this was one of my reasons why I decided to change my AMD Firepro V8800 card and I had a ton of cores (1600 procesors ) yet never use them efficiently. This is a personal opinion I will say . And it is FirePro cards are good for 3D modeling and performing well in the viewport for a reasonable price . But the Quadro cards are outstanding in all, it's more complete than the AMD card. " The Quadro K5000 worth every dollar you pay for it." That's why Nvidia Quadro is a standard in the CG companies like ILM and other 3D industries.

Cons: Nvidia Quadro K5000 only have 90 in Double Precision. But this is solved by adding a Tesla K20.

Other Thoughts: The Quadro K5000 is fully compatible with dual processors (Xeon X5600 or Xeon E5 generations) at least motherboard having PCI Express 2.0 x16. In fact, the Quadro cards were designed for dual processor configuration. Evidence of this is the configuration of my workstation:
EVGA SR-2 motherboard
Asus DVD Burner
Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD
Patriot Signature 24GB Ram
(2) Intel Xeon X5670 proccesors
(2) Corsair H50 Water Cooling
Nvidia Quadro K5000
EVGA SuperNova NEX1500W

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Workstation Card

This review is from: PNY VCQK5000-PB NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 HDCP Ready Workstation video card

Pros: High Def Quad monitor - I personally have it running 3X 24 inch wide screens and 1X 27 inch widescreen.

Drivers are great, need a bit of work for AutoCAD, but the card runs sooth as butter with Creo Parametric (formally ProE). Note: do not use the drivers as provided with the card, they are out-of-date. I didn't eve try them, as I always check vendors for current certified drivers and firmware for all of my components.

Did I mention native quad display? NVidia listened to the masses about the lack of allowing the user to use all ports on a given card at once. A++

Bridging with a Tesla K20 card turns this bad boy into a true fire breathing beast. A bit overkill and pricey, but when you got the funds for a true analysis workstation, I highly recommend it. I bought the Tesla from PNY as I could not get one at Newegg on initial release. But I will buy my second one here when I get my second K5000.

Cons: Would not pass POST initially. After trying to move to a different slot with no success, I ended up removing it, updating and patching the BIOS then reinstalling. Now it loads first time ever time in ASUS Z9PE-D8WS. Check and update your BIOS first using the on-board video, then try installing the card. Not the video cards fault, just the BIOS did not support it yet due in part to it's change in architecture.

The box was missing one Display Port to DVI adapter, but a quick call to PNY and a new one was overnight shipped free of charge.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent card

This review is from: PNY VCQK5000-PB NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 HDCP Ready Workstation video card

Pros: For the moment it works perfect from the install. The newest drivers start to match the data from nvidia benchmarking data.

Cons: Drivers for most programs such as Autodesk still need to be rolled out.

Other Thoughts: Installed ona a dual Xeon x5650 Dell Precision T7500

4 out of 5 eggsPCIe 2.0, not 3.0

This review is from: PNY VCQK5000-PB NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 HDCP Ready Workstation video card

Pros: *This is an update to the previous review.

Cons: The Quadro is listed as a PCIe 3.0 GPU, however it is not, it is PCIe 2.0 only.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card - WHEN it works.

This review is from: PNY VCQK5000-PB NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 HDCP Ready Workstation video card

Pros: Great performance. Bashes through rendering at fantastic speed.

Cons: Does not work properly with Dual CPU boards - As per the previous two reviews, I own the ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS motherboard and the card WILL NOT work in PCIe slot 1. I can not get this thing to work in any slot other than slot 3 (which randomly detects at power on). When it does work, the card is rock stable, but obviously has issues with being detected by Dual CPU motherboards at a BIOS POST level.

PNY claim they have no knowledge of this issue being reported, however I know different. This card has major issues being detected by any Dual CPU board. It will however work just fine in a single CPU config as tested in my other machines.

Sadly, as this card is designed for a workstation environment (often meaning Dual CPU motherboards will be used), it appears sadly it has not been tested properly.

I would LOVE to know the BIOS settings the previous reviewer used to get this card working in PCIe slot 2 (as I can't even get card detection - error 0x55 in the logs).

Other Thoughts: PNY needs to do their homework and test this card out more rigorously in the environments it is intended to be used in. Their customer service was very dismissive and recommended I return the card and buy something else!

This is a fantastic product when it works, sadly at the moment its not playing ball.

If anyone wants to follow this ASUS thread, I will keep it up to date with findings, someone may just come up with a fix - http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20121229093923207&board_id=1&model=Z9PE-D8+WS&page=1&SLanguage=en-us

4 out of 5 eggsQuadro K5000 and Z9PE-D8

This review is from: PNY VCQK5000-PB NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 HDCP Ready Workstation video card

Pros: Great for Pro video work once it's configured correctly. This card is so new that the usual companies (Abobe / Avid) that normally support Quadro cards, do not have this listed as a supported gpu (yet). After modifying each respective qualifying gpu file, I've been able to make it work. It now works great in Media Composer 6.5, After Effects and premiere Pro CS6.

Cons: Initially I was having the same boot issues as the previous reviewer had mentioned when installing in the Asus Z9PE-D8 motherboard, only posting once every 3 atempts or more. After some configuring and hair pulling, I discovered that by moving the card from pcie slot 1 to slot 2 resolved all boot issues and the card now works flawlessly. I benchmarked the gpu in both slots and the performance difference was negligible.

3 out of 5 eggsNot ready for Dual CPU or PCIE 3.0 systems

This review is from: PNY VCQK5000-PB NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB256-bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 HDCP Ready Workstation video card

Pros: Well the Quadro K5000 is here, and we got this for 2 basic reasons. The first being that it's faster than the Quadro 6000 and half the price. The second, and more important reason was because we wanted to see what all the fuss is about Maximus 2. We originally preordered the Tesla K20, but we canceled our order upon discovering that hardly any production (public released) software has been developed at this stage. We even contacted nVidia to inquire about the plugins for Maya that you see in the Maximus 2 demo video... but their response was that they are not presently releasing any software or plugins to the public. However, if you're using 3D Studio, or other engineering applications that access CUDA processors, you may be in luck. We're a VFX studio, primarily using Maya, so we're flat out of luck for now.

PRO's:
1. Slightly noticeable performance increase over standard Quadro 5000, but not as much as you might expect. Granted, we're only testing it with straight openGL rendering. CUDA-capable applications may notice a huge boost!
2. 4K textures, great when working on HD or Film 3D!
3. As mentioned before - Maximus 2!... When they finally release plugins for it.

Cons: Oh boy, where to start?

1. PNY has horrible customer service. Not only when you call them to ask for tech support, but also when you're RMA'ing bad cards. They gave us a different refurbished card when we returned a Quadro 5000... as in SOMEONE ELSE's broken card. It too failed after several weeks. That's a horrible way to treat your customers who buy your "top end" cards.
2. This card is NOT compatible (as of the date of this post) in the following motherboards that we tested it in:
- SR-X (doesn't get past POST in ANY configuration)
- ASUS Z9PE-D8 (boots 1 out of 3 times with latest BIOS)

Why? Probably because these are both Dual 2011 socket motherboards, meaning that multiple CPU's control different PCIE ports. PNY probably only tested it on single socket boards

Work's on:
- EVGA FTW3 board, without any known issues.
- Supermicro LGA1366 boards, with periodic boot issues

3. Buggy, hit or miss boot-ups once you get it working. I suspect BIOS patches will start to solve this over the next few months.

Other Thoughts: Got a dual socket board? Or PCI 3.0 ports? You should probably wait!

It's GOING to be a great card, but they should have waited longer before releasing so they could work out the faults with dual socket boards.
