NVIDIA Quadro K6000 technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro K6000

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro K6000 sales 23 July 2013 at a recommended price of 5,265 USD. This is a Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 12 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 288.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. An additional 2 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 42.31 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
