- Memory clock speed 14000 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started Quadro RTX 8000 sales 13 August 2018 at a recommended price of $9,999. This is high-end Turing architecture desktop card based on 12 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 48 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 672.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 260 Watt.
It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT.

- GeekBench 5 CUDA
- GeekBench 5 OpenCL
- GeekBench 5 Vulkan
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
GeekBench 5 CUDA
Geekbench 5 is a widespread graphics card benchmark combined from 11 different test scenarios. All these scenarios rely on direct usage of GPU's processing power, no 3D rendering is involved. This variation uses CUDA API by NVIDIA.
