NVIDIA Quadro 4000 for Mac

Product Information

  • Overview

    Delivering excellent graphics performance across a broad range of design, animation and video applications, Quadro 4000 for Mac allows you to do more, faster. NVIDIA professional software technologies such as CUDA and optimised drivers enable Quadro GPUs to dramatically accelerate applications such as Premier Pro CS5, where you can streamline your production workflow by previewing and editing multiple layers of high definition video in real-time.

    Better, faster results

    With GPU accelerated professional applications such as DaVinci Resolve, Autodesk Smoke and Mathworks Matlab available on the Mac, Quadro 4000 for Mac enables you to deliver higher quality results in less time.

    Advanced architecture

    The Quadro 4000 for Mac is based on the groundbreaking NVIDIA Fermi architecture. Featuring the Scalable Geometry Engine and 256 CUDA parallel processing cores, it delivers best-in-class performance for graphics-intensive and compute-intensive applications. Fast double precision, a unique Quadro feature, will enable high accuracy and fast results critical for a number of CAE or Scientific applications such as Matlab. Additionally, 2GB of high-speed memory enables smooth interactivity with large datasets.

    Flexible connectivity

    Featuring DisplayPort and DVI connectors, you get maximum flexibility in display connectivity. A dedicated 3-pin miniDIN connector enables a robust glitch-free for 3D stereoscopic viewing experience.

    In addition, when employing Apple Boot Camp, users can experience the full features and accelerated performance of native Quadro professional 3D graphics when running Windows based professional applications.

    Built for Mac Pro

    Designed, tested, and built by NVIDIA for the Mac Pro, Quadro 4000 for Mac gives professionals the highest performance in its class, most advanced capabilities and greatest reliability. With Quadro your work flows design, iterate and deliver higher quality results in less time.
