You would think that the GTX 1080 and the new Titan X would be Nvidia’s most powerful graphics cards available for consumers, right? Not quite, it seems that the company isn’t quite finished with releasing insanely powerful graphics cards. This time round, the company has unveiled the Quadro P5000 and P6000.
The less powerful graphics card of the two would be the Quadro P5000 and it comes with specifications that makes the GTX 1080 look insignificant. This graphics card is fitted with a full, unaltered Pascal GP104 GPU along with 16GB of GDDR5X memory, which is twice that of the GTX 1080.
In addition, the graphics card is said to come with a memory clock speed of 9Gbps and a GPU boost clock speed of around 1,730MHz. Besides that, the Quadro P5000 also has a CUDA Core and TMU (Texture Mapping Unit) count of 2,560 and 160 respectively. Also not forgetting the FP32 (single-precision floating point) performance of this graphics card: 8.9 TFLOPs.
Nvidia’s next Quadro graphics card is one to admire. Like the new Titan X, the Quadro P6000 graphics cards is equipped with the glorious 471mm2 (die size) Pascal GP102 GPU. Not much details about this graphics card was announced by Nvidia but what we do know is the fact that it comes with 24GB of GDDR5X memory; making the new Titan X look puny. That aside, the Quadro P6000 is also said to boast a FP32 performance of 12 TFLOPs.
Interestingly, both the Quadro P5000 and P6000 graphics card do not come with the edgy, cool-looking cooler shroud that other Pascal-based graphics cards are equipped with. Price was not mentioned, but looking back at the price for older high-end Maxwell-based Quadro graphics cards, it’s safe to say that Nvidia’s new Quadro cards come with a price tag that’ll put a dent in one’s wallet.
