Nvidia Corp. on Tuesday unveiled its most powerful graphics solution ever with the launch of Quadro K6000 graphics card aimed at the very top of the professional graphics segment. Based on fully-fledged GK110 graphics chip with 2880 stream processors and 12GB of memory, the Quadro K6000 offers something more than just high performance graphics and simulation for creative professionals.


"The Nvidia Quadro K6000 GPU is the highest performance, most capable GPU ever created for the professional graphics market. It will significantly change the game for animators, digital designers and engineers, enabling them to make the impossible possible," said Ed Ellett, senior vice president of professional solutions group at Nvidia.

Nvidia Quadro K6000 is based on the fully-featured GK110 graphics processing unit with 2880 stream processors. The board comes with 12GB GDDR5 memory and supports up to four monitors with up 4K (3840*2160 resolution). The graphics solution is the most powerful Kepler-series graphics chip ever created as it outperforms even GeForce GTX Titan, which has 2688 stream processors.

According to Nvidia, the Quadro K6000 GPU delivers five-times higher compute performance and nearly double the graphics capability of its predecessor, the Nvidia Quadro 6000 GPU, and features the world's largest and fastest graphics memory.

The Nvidia Quadro K6000 will be available beginning this fall from Dell, HP, Lenovo and other major workstation providers; from systems integrators, including Boxx Technologies and Supermicro; and from authorized distribution partners, including PNY Technologies in North America and Europe, Elsa and Ryoyo in Japan, and Leadtek in Asia Pacific.
