Nvidia Unveils a Quadro M6000 with an Insane Amount of VRAM
Cernescu Andrei / 2 years ago
The Nvidia Quadro M6000 has just received an important upgrade not too long ago, an upgrade that addresses the need for more VRAM. Even though this new version is still based on an unlocked Maxwell GM200 GPU, it actually boasts 24 GB of VRAM thanks to a series of 8 GB GDDR5 chips. Apart from this, the card’s specs have pretty much remained the same, but the substantial increase in VRAM should definitely come in handy for industry professionals who need that memory for heavy animations or renderings. Going into specifics, this card boasts a 28nm GM200 GPU with 3072 CUDA cores, as well as 96 ROPs and 192 TUs.
Its clock speed of 1140 MHz is definitely respectable while its 24 GB of GDDR5 memory benefits from a 384-bit bus. Naturally, even though the Maxwell architecture is incredibly power efficient, the new Quadro M6000 still comes with a TDP of 250W. It’s also worth noting that this new M6000 comes with a new firmware that allows the user to control temperatures and clock speeds more efficiently. Priced at $5,000, this new Nvidia Quadro card is definitely not cheap, but considering the fact that it replaces the previous 12GB model at the same price point, it actually looks like a worthy investment.
