Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Competitors of Radeon Pro W6600 from NVIDIA

We believe that the nearest equivalent to Radeon Pro W6600 from NVIDIA is Quadro GP100.

Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to Radeon Pro W6600:

Advantages of AMD Radeon Pro W5700

Wider memory bus (256 vs 128 bit)

More pipelines (2304 vs 1792)

Higher memory bandwidth (448 vs 224 GB/s)

Advantages of AMD Radeon Pro W6600

Much newer (8 June 2021 vs 19 November 2019)

Cheaper ($1 vs $1110)

Lower power consumption (100W vs 205W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
