NVIDIA unveils the new Quadro M6000 with 24GB GDDR5

NVIDIA has announced its latest Quadro M6000 professional video card, with a huge 24GB GDDR5 memory.

The Quadro M6000 feature a full GM200 core (just like GTX Titan X) and 6 Graphics Processing Clusters. Each of the Graphics Processing Clusters features four SMM (Streaming Multiprocessing Units) with 12 cores in each SMM block. With 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs and 3MB of L2 cache, with six 64-bit memory controllers – with a 384-bit memory bus, and the GPU clocked at 988MHz. The new Quadro M6000 has a 225W TDP, with a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, DVI, HDMI and 3 x DisplayPort outputs.


The only difference between the older Quadro M6000 had 12GB GDDR5 memory and the new model is that the new model features 24GB of GDDR5 memory.

NVIDIA says that the updated Quadro M6000 ships with temperature and clock speed management options, with the company noting: “More discrete GPU clock options for a better customer experience when running their application” as well as “greater software temperature control to keep the GPU temperature below the hardware slowdown threshold for the best user experience”.

The new NVIDIA Quadro M6000 will cost $5000 and ship start later this week.
