NVIDIA today unveiled the its new flagship technology -- the NVIDIA Quadro K6000 GPU.NVIDIA today also launched a new line of professional graphics GPUs for mobile workstations.
Nvidia claims that 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 largest and fastest graphics memory.
The Quadro K6000 GPU is based on the NVIDIA Kepler architecture. Key performance features and capabilities include:
- 12GB GDDR5 graphics memory
- 2,880 streaming multiprocessor (SMX) cores
- Supports four simultaneous displays and up to 4k resolution with DisplayPort 1.2
- Ultra-low latency video I/O and support for large-scale visualizations

NVIDIA doesn?t provide the exact specs of its Quadro line, but based on their performance data it?s easy to calculate the necessary information. Nvidia quotes compute performance of 5.2TFLOPs/sec for single precision (FP32), meaning that the Quadro K6000 is a fully enabled GK110 part, shipping with all 15 SMXes clocked at roughly 900MHz. Paired with this GPU is a staggering 12GB of VRAM clocked at 6GHz, marking the first NVIDIA product shipping with 4Gb GDDR5. The TDP remains as low as 225W.
The NVIDIA Quadro K6000 will be available beginning this fall from Dell, HP, Lenovo and other major workstation providers; from systems integrators, including BOXX Technologies and Supermicro; and from authorized distribution, including PNY Technologies in North America and Europe, ELSA and Ryoyo in Japan, and Leadtek in Asia Pacific.
New Mobile Workstation GPUs
NVIDIA today also revealed a new flagship professional graphics GPU for workstation notebooks, the NVIDIA Quadro K5100M GPU. The Quadro K5100M anchors a new line of workstation notebook graphics that includes the Quadro K4100M, K3100M, K2100M, K1100M, K610M, and K510M GPUs.
The new Quadro mobile workstation graphics product line will also be available beginning this fall from mobile workstation OEMs.
