Summary

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

65.45%

of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT.
