NVIDEA announced its new graphics accelerator for Mac Pros today, promising "the most powerful professional-class GPU ever for the Macintosh" that will bring "unprecedented visualisation and computation capabilities".

Built primarily for designers and digital content creators, the Quadro K5000 is based on NVIDEA's Kepler architecture and includes Cinema 4K display support, a digital cinema standard that gives a 4096x2160 resolution on the monitor. The GPU also features a new engine that can drive up to four displays simultaneously.

"Quadro K5000 for Mac will have a transformational impact on the digital content creation workflow," said Greg Estes, media & entertainment industry executive at NVIDIA. "We're giving Mac Pro users the most powerful professional GPU ever for the Mac, with features and performance that will make a substantial difference in their workflows and allow them to create digital content at speeds never before possible."

The NVIDIA Quadro K5000 for Mac is planned to be available later this year from select Apple resellers and system integrators, and from authorized distribution partners, including PNY Technologies in the Americas and Europe, ELSA in Japan and Leadtek in Asia Pacific. Estimated pricing starts at $2,249.
