Pascal powers up pro graphics with Nvidia's new Quadros

Just a couple days after it announced the next Titan X, Nvidia is extending the reach of its Pascal GPUs to even greater heights. The company revealed its Quadro P6000 and Quadro P5000 graphics cards today at SIGGRAPH 2016.

The Quadro P6000 is the more powerful of the two cards. It packs 3840 stream processors hooked up to 24GB of GDDR5X memory through a 384-bit bus. Given those core counts, it's highly probable this chip uses the GP102 GPU. Apparently, the just-announced Titan X doesn't use all of the SPs that GP102 has to offer. Nvidia rates this card's FP32 performance at 12 TFLOPS. Anandtech notes that the P6000's memory will run at 9 GT/s, although Nvidia is remaining mum about the card's clock speeds for now. The P6000 also has a board power of 250W.

The Quadro P5000 has a spec sheet similar to that of a GeForce GTX 1080, so it appears to be powered by the GP104 GPU. It has 2560 SPs paired with 16GB of GDDR5X memory, presumably across the same 256-bit bus. This card should deliver 8.9 TFLOPS of FP32 performance, and it'll dissipate 180W in operation. According to Anandtech, both of these cards will be available starting in October.
