NVIDIA Quadro 6000: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro 6000

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro 6000 sales 10 December 2010 at a recommended price of $4,399. This is Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 6 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2.99 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 143.4 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 248 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 204 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 18.33 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
