Best CUDA for the Mac- 4K at 60fps- Great upgrade for video and graphics enthusiasts still on previous model Mac Pro

Summary: Outputs 4 displays, and can do 4K at 60 fps via DisplayPort. The CUDA engine is ideal for those using Adobe Premiere as well. It also significantly speeds up 3D in After Effects. One of the better high end cards for the previous Mac Pro Tower, and really one of the only options for graphics work at this point for the now legacy based machine. This is not an ideal fit for gaming, and cheaper options are available if you don't need CUDA acceleration.

Summary: Graphics card with excellent performance. It uses with a pair of monitors (Dell U3014 & Dell U3011). Gorgeous smoothness of sketch lines. Feature is great for sophisticated assemblies with translucent elements.
Excerpt: I bought this graphics card to replace my GeForce GTX 680 in my 2010 Mac Pro. I do a lot of video editing and I wanted to reduce my render & compression times. This card is more than 2x the cost of the 680 but it had very similar performance in the areas of rendering & compressing video. I returned it and am still using the 680. I suppose if I were doing a lot of 3D modeling with light ray tracing then I may have noticed a difference between the cards.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Good Graphics Quality, Reliable Performance
Summary: great card it is the future of Pro graphics card, I have no issue with my Hp z620 workstation, and work great for 3ds Max I post this in one of my fourms I searched for a review for K5000 all around the internet trying to find a support with no use, I search and search with no answer I finally manage to get the K5000.
Summary: I am unsure this card is worth the cost unless you are earning a profit from graphics generation, otherwise find another graphics card. Pros: - PNY Quadro support is REALLY FRIENDLY! - Best card you can get for a Mac Pro 5,1. - Renders video from After Effects like a champ. - Renders RAW files in Lightroom, DXO Pro like a king. - For professional rendering and graphics intensive features this thing is top of the line for the OSX environment.
Summary: fantastic card adding 2nd one now, together they make a super computer in my box plus wild video affects and processing power...I am building a SR-2 classified that will sport 2 or maybe even 3 of them...in a mountain mods case.....yahooooie....water cooled and over clocked..
Summary: The car is what you could expect from the Quadro range, an excellent piece of hardware with very good performances with professional applications. If you are only after casual 3D modeling or for gaming, it is better (less expensive) to look for a GTX 580, however for professional use this is an outstanding product.
