PRESS RELEASE

Quadro K6000

Nvidia has announced what it says is the fastest and most capable GPU ever built – the Quadro K6000. Based on Kepler architecture, the Quadro K6000 GPU delivers five times higher compute performance and nearly double the graphics capability of its predecessor, the Nvidia Quadro 6000 GPU, and features the world’s largest and fastest graphics memory.

According to Nividia, the GPU combines breakthrough performance and advanced capabilities in a power-efficient design to enable leading organisations to tackle visualisation and analysis workloads of unprecedented size and scope.

Features include 2,880 streaming multiprocessor (SMX) cores that deliver faster visualisation and compute horsepower than previous-generation products; ultra-low latency video I/O and support for large-scale visualisations; and 12GB ultra-fast GDDR5 graphics memory that lets designers model and render at an impressive scale, complexity and richness.
