Nvidia Announces Quadro M5000, M4000 Maxwell-based Pro Graphics Cards At SIGGRAPH

On the heels of its introduction of the Quadro M6000 at NAB in April, at SIGGRAPH, Nvidia announced the release of two more Maxwell-architecture-based Quadro professional graphics cards, the Quadro M5000 and Quadro M4000.

These new cards replace the Quadro K5200 and Quadro K4200, and the Maxwell architecture improvements allow them to, like the Quadro M6000, double the performance of the cards that preceded them. This leaves the Quadro M4000 with theoretical performance that would surpass the previous top-end Quadro K6000 in a single slot, according to Nvidia.

Pricing data was not available at press time, but it is safe to assume that they will occupy the same price point as their predecessors.

    So if they can make these cards single slot, why can't we get single slot geforce cards?

    Is it worth paying more than 4x to get professional cards? I don't plan on gaming, but I feel like I will get better performance with same price consumer cards for CAD applications.

    It depends on the application. There are some apps that NEED a quatro/professional card or they wont work/work so slowly they aren't worth it. Others function just fine with regular geforce cards.
