Nvidia Brings Pascal To Pro Graphics With Quadro P6000, P5000 GPUs

Quadro P6000

At SIGGRAPH 2016, Nvidia announced its first two professional graphics cards for workstations based on the Pascal architecture, the Quadro P6000 and the Quadro P5000.

With this release, Nvidia brings the well-documented Pascal design to workstation graphics. The 16nm FinFET transistors mean even more processing power in a smaller space. Simultaneous Multi Projection (SMP) is actually more important in the workstation space because applications can now use the same geometry in multiple windows, and it is common in 3D applications to have an entire orthographic projection of the same geometry on screen (top, front, side and perspective views).

Lighting and shading artists will appreciate the performance boost given by dynamic load balancing because the card will perform better when using real-time shaded and CUDA- or OpenCL-rendered views at the same time.

The DisplayPort 1.4 ports support up to 7680x4320 at 60 Hz in 30-bit color or can drive up to four 5k displays simultaneously. The Quadro Sync 2 card can be used to sync up to 8 GPUs per system for artifact-free multi-display imagery.

Both cards are expected to be available in October 2016. Pricing was not available at press time.

    I think you need to update the table at the bottom to P6000 and P5000.

    AMD laughs at your paltry 24GB of memory, LOL

    It's not the size of your RAM that matters, it's how you use it!

    And Nvidia laughs at the $10K price tag for Pro SSG.

    Just read the Radeon Pro SSG news, and suddenly this looks so boring... :/

    The new Radeon Pro WX professional series do to, ok? Not trolling Nvidia.

    Seriously...nvidia vs amd is still something people get worked up about?

    The SSG Dev Kit is priced at $10K not the card alone.

    Isn't the SSG using a SSD not GDDR or HBM ram?

    NVIDIA laughs at AMD's paltry 2GB/s (max) 1TB SSD inside the GPU.

    So, 2x the memory of a new Titan X or GTX 1080 for at least 5x the $? That and ECC are probably the only differences.

    *yawn*

    BTW, they're seriously over-hyping "Simultaneous Multi Projection". It doesn't enable anything you couldn't do before. It just an optimization for doing it in a single pass. I doubt most apps are bottlenecked by geometry processing, anyhow.
