NVIDIA made quite the splash when it launched its new Maxwell architecture in September, but the company is reportedly preparing its new Quadro M6000 GPU which will see the visual computing market get excited, very excited.
The new NVIDIA Quadro M6000 should be based on the GM200 architecture, with a fully unleashed Maxwell chip at the heart of the card. The full GM200 would feature 3072 CUDA cores (24 SMMs, while the GM204 sports 16 SMMs). This full GM200 core also features 96 ROPs, and either 192 or 256 TMUs. The memory interface will be expanded from the 256-bit bus on the GeForce GTX 980 (based on the GM204 core) to 384-bit for the Quadro M6000.
On top of that, we should see the Quadro M6000 feature a huge 12GB of GDDR5 RAM with a total memory bandwidth of 317.4GB/sec thanks to its 384-bit memory bus. We should see NVIDIA launch the Quadro M6000 later this month, or even tonight at its CES 2015 event.
