NVIDIA® Quadro® K5000 for Mac – Experience the World's Most Powerful Professional Graphics on the Apple® Mac Pro® Platform
From small agencies to large media conglomerates, creative professionals utilizing the Apple Mac Pro want tools that let them bring their vision to life as fast as possible – without sacrificing quality. The Quadro K5000 for Mac gives artists and editors unprecedented power and interactivity. Innovative capabilities for increased throughput and support for up to four displays make it ideal for maximum productivity on the desktop and for driving large-scale visualization solutions.
The Quadro K5000 for Mac's next-generation streaming multiprocessor design offers important architectural changes that transform workflow. These include tremendous increases in per-clock throughput of key graphics operations for new levels of performance. The 4GB frame buffer supports larger scenes and improves interactivity during the creative process. With the ability to drive up to four displays simultaneously from the two DVI and two DisplayPort connectors, and support for DisplayPort 1.2 features, the K5000 provides greater color depth, higher refresh rates and the ability to support ultra-high resolutions of 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz or 4096 x 2160 at 48Hz
NVIDIA QUADRO K5000 FEATURES AND BENEFITS
NVIDIA® CUDA® Architecture Parallel-computing architecture that tightly integrates advanced visualization and compute features to significantly accelerate professional workflow.
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.
Dual Copy Engines Enables the highest rates of parallel data processing and concurrent throughput between the GPU and host, accelerating techniques such as ray tracing, color grading and physical simulation.
NVIDIA SMX 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.
Ultra-Quiet Design Silent cooling design enables acoustics lower than 28db for an ultra-quiet desktop environment.
Full-Scene Anti-Aliasing (FSAA) Up to 64X FSAA for dramatically reducing visual aliasing artifacts or "jaggies," resulting in unparalleled image quality and highly realistic scenes.
GPU Tessellation with Shader Model 5.0 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.
Quad-Display Support All-new display engine drives up to four displays simultaneously and fully supports the next generation Display Port 1.2 features. DisplayPort 1.2 supports enhanced color depth, higher refresh rates, and increased resolutions as high as 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz or 4096 x 2160 at 48Hz to enable an expansive workspace and boost productivity.
30-Bit Color Fidelity (10-Bits per red, green, and blue). Enables billions of color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range.
Professional 3D Stereo Synchronization Enables robust control of stereo effect through a dedicated three-pin mini-din connection to directly synchronize 3D stereo hardware to Quadro graphics card.
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.

This review is from: NVIDIA® Quadro® K5000 for Mac VCQK5000MAC-PB 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Supported Workstation Video Card
Pros: Power with a 4 GB of video memory and work with Open CL , Open GL , Nvidia.
Cons: You need to pay very high price but is is to be expected on Mac Pro.
Other Thoughts: For Mac Pro before 2013 this is the best option available also Apple natively supported.
