Notebooks now shipping with Nvidia Kepler Quadro GPUs

Manufacturers silently launch new workstations with Kepler-based Quadro Kx000M graphics including the EliteBook 8770w, ThinkPad W530 and Precision M6700/M4700

The GeForce series may be receiving all the attention with Nvidia's latest Kepler architecture, but professional markets and workstation users are definitely not getting left out in the cold.

Manufacturers are now beginning to ship workstations with GPUs based on the Fermi successor, including the high-end Quadro K5000M GPU. Essentially a GK104 at heart, the K5000M directly succeeds the Quadro 5010M and shares many core similarities with the ultra-powerful GeForce GTX 680M.

The first known upcoming notebook model to include the K5000M will be the 17.3-inch HP 8770w, which can also be pre-configured with the K4000M or K3000M. Its smaller brother, the 15.6-inch 8570w, will have options for a K1000M or K2000M GPU. Other manufacturers, such as Lenovo and Dell, will offer Kx000M options as well with the ThinkPad W530 and Precision M6700/M4700 workstations, respectively.

For more information of the Quadro K5000M, see our dedicated GPU page here.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
