NVIDIA's Next-Gen Turing GPU: All You Need To Know

By: Anthony Garreffa | NVIDIA GeForce GPU in Video Cards | Posted: Aug 14, 2018 2:58 am

The New Quadro RTX Range

 

NVIDIA unveiled three new Quadro RTX graphics cards during SIGGRAPH 2018 which starts with the Quadro RTX, and is joined by the Quadro RTX 6000 and Quadro RTX 8000. The Quadro RTX 5000 packs 16GB of GDDR6 with 6 GigaRays/Sec, powered by 3072 CUDA cores and 384 Tensor Cores. Wee're looking at a price of $2300, while the other cards get very expensive.

The higher-end Quadro RTX packs 10 GigaRays/Sec of performance, a huge 4608 CUDA cores and 576 Tensor Cores. It'll pack a much larger frame buffer of 24GB GDDR6, and a more commanding price of $6300. The new range of Turing-based cards comes with the flagship Quadro RTX 8000 that costs $10,000 and features the same specs as the Quadro RTX 6000 except it packs a game-changing 48GB of GDDR6.

 

If you mix into the mix NVLink, the memory doubles on each of the cards unlike SLI where the framebuffer is from a single card worth of VRAM. This means if you're using two of the flagship RTX 8000s you'll have a mind boggling 96GB of GDDR6. You would've spent $20,000 on it - but you'll have near supercomputer levels of performance in your desktop.
