Nvidia announces Quadro P6000 and Quadro P5000 GPUs

At SIGGRAPH 2016 computer graphics trade show in Anaheim, California, on Monday, chip maker Nvidia announced two new models of Quadro GPUs based on the Pascal architecture --- the Quadro P6000 and the Quadro P5000.

The two new Quadro GPU models mark the introduction of Nvidia's Pascal architecture to the Quadro lineup. The new graphics cards will offer noteworthy upgrades, both in terms of performance and features, over the previous- generation models based on Maxwell 2.

According to the details shared by Nvidia in a blog post, the Quadro P6000 GPU will have the capability to deliver 12 teraflops of single-precision performance. The card will boast 3,840 cores and 24GB of GDDR5X memory; and will support 432GBps (gigabytes per second) of memory bandwidth.

In addition, the Quadro P6000 GPU will come with four DisplayPort 1.4 slots, to support resolutions up to 4K at 120Hz and 5K at 60Hz.

The Quadro P5000 GPU, meanwhile, will have the capability to deliver 8.9 teraflops of peak performance. The card has 2,560 cores, 16GB of GDDR5X memory and 288GBps of memory bandwidth.
