GTC 2016 - Before the GPU Technology Conference has even kicked off, the new NVIDIA Quadro M5500 has been unveiled, powered by the GM204 GPU. The GM204 is the same GPU that powers the GTX 980, and GTX 970.

The new Quadro M5500 features 8GB of GDDR5 and is the fastest VR ready, workstation-class video card that ships with 8GB of VRAM. The Quadro M5500 features 2048 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs, with its GPU boosting up to 1140MHz, just lower than the 1218MHz on the notebook GTX 980 video card.

NVIDIA's new Quadro M5500 is poised for the VR development and workstation market, where it should find a new home in high-end, workstation-class notebooks. These workstation notebooks sport insane Intel Xeon processors, with up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM.

The Quadro M5500 will begin shipping in May 2016, with a price that is very close to the notebook GTX 980 chip.
