NVidia announces fastest ever GPU yet
NVidia has announced a new Kepler based Quadro K6000 GPU which it claims is the fastest and most capable GPU ever built till date.
The Quadro K6000 replaces the Quadro 6000 and the specifications of the new GPU are just too good to be true. The K6000 packs 12GB of blazing-fast DDR5 graphics memory along with a whopping 2,880 streaming multiprocessor cores, ultra-low latency video I/O and support for large-scale visualizations. With all this GPU has the ability to drive four simultaneous 4K displays.
NVidia has claimed in the press release that companies like Pixar, Nissan, Apache Corporation have been able to tackle “visualization and analysis workloads of unprecedented size and scope.” According to the GPU maker, Nissan has been able to load almost-complete vehicle models using the K6000.
Quadro K6000 is expected to ship in Autumn sometime and will be available from HP, Lenovo, Dell and other such desktop makers NVidia has revealed. It will be available from system integrators as well like BOXX Technologies and Supermicro as well as authorized distribution partners.
We expect the new K6000 to be priced rather steeply. No concrete information has been made available yet but, considering the pricing of K5000, which stands at $2,250, the new Quadro K6000 may be priced somewhere upwards of $3,000.
