SIGGRAPH 2013: Nvidia's intros high-end K6000 GPU & new mobile solutions

ANAHEIM, CA — At SIGGRAPH 2013, Nvidia ( unveiled the Quadro K6000 GPU, what it describes as “the fastest and most capable GPU ever built.” The Quadro K6000 GPU delivers five-times higher compute performance and nearly double the graphics capability of its predecessor, Nvidia’s Quadro 6000 GPU. It also features the some of the largest and fastest graphics memory available.

Combining breakthrough performance and advanced capabilities in a power-efficient design, the Quadro K6000 GPU enables organizations such as Pixar, Nissan, Apache Corporation and The Weather Channel's WSI division to tackle visualization and analysis workloads of enormous size and scope.

Key performance features and capabilities include 12GB ultra-fast GDDR5 graphics memory, which lets designers and animators model and render characters and scenes at unprecedented scale, complexity and richness; 2,880 streaming multiprocessor (SMX) cores, which deliver faster visualization and compute horsepower than previous-generation products; and supports four simultaneous displays and up to 4K resolution with DisplayPort 1.2. Ultra‐low latency video I/O and support for large‐scale visualizations is also possible.

Nvidia also launched a new line of professional graphics GPUs for mobile workstations at SIGGRAPH. They deliver some of the highest levels of performance and graphics memory ever available on mobile platforms. The Quadro K5100M anchors a new line of workstation notebook graphics that includes the Quadro K4100M, K3100M, K2100M, K1100M, K610M, and K510M GPUs. Quadro GPUs are designed, built and tested by Nvidia to provide the high reliability, compatibility and dependability that professionals require. They are certified and recommended by more than 150 leading software application providers worldwide.

The Quadro K6000 will be available beginning this fall from Dell, Lenovo and other major workstation providers. The new Quadro mobile workstation graphics product line will also be available beginning this fall from major mobile workstation OEMs.
