NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference is right around the corner, kicking off on Tuesday, but we've already been introduced to the GM200-based GeForce GTX Titan X, and now the Maxwell-based Quadro M6000... courtesy of electronic music star Deadmau5.
Deadmau5 posted the image to his Instagram account, with two NVIDIA Quadro M6000 cards sitting in his rendered machine. We can't see the PCIe power connectors, but considering how power efficient the Maxwell architecture is, we can expect dual 6-pin power connectors at most. Comparing the Quadro K6000 and M6000 against each other, the M6000 should be quite the jump for users.
The new M6000 should feature 24 SMMs compared to the 15 found on the K6000, while we have 3072 GPU cores, compared to the 2880 Kepler-based cores found in the K6000. 96 ROPs with 192 TMUs on the M6000 versus the 48 ROPs and 240 TMUs on the K6000, which will result in 6.07 TFlops of performance versus the K6000 and its 5.2 TFlops.
We should hear more about this during the week at NVIDIA's GTC 2015 event, which we will be covering live.
