NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro RTX 4000 sales 13 November 2018 at a recommended price of $899. This is high-end Turing architecture desktop card based on 12 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 8 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 13 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 416.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 241 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 160 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 59.23 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
