NVIDIA Unveils New Flagship GPU for Visual Computing

NVIDIA Unveils New Flagship GPU for Visual Computing 
Quadro K6000 Tackles Most Complex Visual Computing Problems -- From
Tapping Vast New Energy Sources to Animating Monster Fur 
ANAHEIM, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/13 --   SIGGRAPH -- NVIDIA
today unveiled the visual computing industry's new flagship
technology -- the NVIDIA(R) Quadro(R) K6000 GPU, the fastest and most
capable GPU ever built.  
NVIDIA today also launched a new line of professional graphics GPUs
for mobile workstations, delivering the highest levels of performance
and graphics memory ever available on mobile platforms. 
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.  
Combining breakthrough performance and advanced capabilities in a
power-efficient design, the Quadro K6000 GPU enables leading
organizations such as Pixar, Nissan, Apache Corporation and the
Weather Channel's WSI division to tackle visualization and analysis
workloads of unprecedented size and scope.  


 
--  Animation and Visual Effects - Pixar
     "The Kepler features are key to
    our next generation of real-time lighting and geometry handling. We
    were thrilled to get an early look at the K6000. The added memory and
    other features allow our artists to see much more of the final scene
    in a real-time, interactive form, and allow many more artistic
    iterations."
     -Guido Quaroni, Pixar vice president of Software R&D
    
    
--  Product Styling - Nissan
     "With Quadro K6000's 12 GB of memory, I am
    now able to load nearly complete vehicle models into RTT Deltagen and
    have stunning photorealism almost instantly. Instead of spending
    significant time simplifying the models to fit into previous hardware,
    we can now spend more time reviewing and iterating designs up front
    which helps avoid costly changes to tooling."
     -Dennis Malone,
    associate engineer, Nissan North America
    
    
--  Energy Exploration - Apache
     "Compared to the Quadro K5000, the Quadro
    K6000 tripled the performance when running jobs on Terraspark's
    InsightEarth application. With jobs running in mere minutes, we can
    run more simulations and get better insight into where to drill. In
    this business, drilling in the wrong place is a multi-million dollar
    mistake, and the Quadro K6000 gives us the edge to make better
    decisions."
     -Klaas Koster, manager, seismic interpretation, Apache
    Corporation

  
Unprecedented Performance
 The Quadro K6000 GPU is based on the NVIDIA
Kepler(TM) architecture - the world's fastest, most efficient GPU
architecture. Key performance features and capabilities include: 


 
--  12GB ultra-fast GDDR5 graphics memory lets designers and animators
    model and render characters and scenes at unprecedented scale,
    complexity and richness
    
    
--  2,880 streaming multiprocessor (SMX) cores deliver faster
    visualization and compute horsepower than previous-generation
    products
    
    
--  Supports four simultaneous displays and up to 4k resolution with
    DisplayPort(TM) 1.2
    
    
--  Ultra-low latency video I/O and support for large-scale
    visualizations

  
"The NVIDIA Quadro K6000 GPU is the highest performance, most capable
GPU ever created for the professional graphics market," said Ed
Ellett, senior vice president, Professional Solutions Group at
NVIDIA. "It will significantly change the game for animators, digital
designers and engineers, enabling them to make the impossible
possible."  
New Mobile Workstation GPUs
 NVIDIA today also revealed a new
flagship professional graphics GPU for workstation notebooks, the
NVIDIA Quadro K5100M GPU. Delivering the highest levels of
performance and graphics memory available on notebook platforms, the
Quadro K5100M anchors a new line of workstation notebook graphics
that includes the Quadro K4100M, K3100M, K2100M, K1100M, K610M, and
K510M GPUs. 
Quadro GPUs are designed, built and tested by NVIDIA to provide the
superb reliability, compatibility and dependability that
professionals require. They are certified and recommended by more
than 150 leading software application providers worldwide. 
Availability 
 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.  
The new Quadro mobile workstation graphics product line will also be
available beginning this fall from major mobile workstation OEMs.
