NVIDIA Quadro M6000: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro M6000

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro M6000 sales 21 March 2015 at a recommended price of $4,199.99. This is high-end Maxwell 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 12 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.61 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 317.4 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. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 250 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 56.01 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN V.
