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.

    Interesting, no HBM2 here either. I guess NV does not have this technology quite ready yet.

      They do but they’d kept it to the Tesla line and the GP100 chip. The extra costs associated with interposers are a non-issue in that market segment considering the prices nVidia is selling those cards for.

        Indeed, forgot about Tesla.

    WCCF has it’s counterpart posted already.

      I stopped visiting WCCF after I happened to read a comment in the contents section of one of their recent articles about Microsoft wherein a reader questioned their integrity and the author responded with a lot of rough words and expletives. So UNprofessional.

        I never read anything on that sight but for the main articles. ( kind of like this site ).. if you don’t want to go there for whatever reasons that’s your business. but you’re missing a lot of good things to read…….. and usually before anybody else on the net has them published.

        OMG DONT EVER READ THE COMMENTS ON WCCF
        its like crossing the streams in ghostbusters or feeding a mogwai after midnight on gremlins
        bad things happen

      There is no equivalent counterpart.
      ComparingPascal to Polaris is like comparing a Jet Plane with a glider

    Looks like a full GP102 has 3840 SPs, so that means GP102 is roughly 1.5x GP104.

      • chuckula
      • 3 years ago

      Resource wise it is about 50% bigger when all the SM’s are activated.
      The numbers don’t quite scale that high because of the lower clockspeeds, however.

        • ImSpartacus
        • 3 years ago

        That definitely makes sense given the power limits. 1.5x 180W is 270W, but gp102 will only get 250W. And sure enough, the clocks are roughly reduced by those ratios in the Titan X.

        But hopefully that can be remedied by some splendid overclocking.

          Who overclocks a Quadro, seriously?

            Content creators. The same group of people who don’t need high reliability, just raw performance to produce media. Figure video processing and 3D animation.

            If GP102 can clock to the same heights as GP104, an overclocked P6000 card is going to be a beast.

            Only rank amateurs who don’t give a shit about quality would resort to overclocking.

            • 3 years ago

            For content creation, how does overclocking reduce quality? An erroneous calculation that ever so slightly changes a single pixel value that is only displayed for a single frame?

            • Krogoth
            • 3 years ago

            It is more like animation errors and painful artifacts. Overclocking the GPU is known to cause both issues and it is primary flag that tells you that your GPU overclock is “unstable”. It looks highly unprofessional and ends up damaging your reputation. Would you risk publishing work that has visual issues because you cut corners? You will probably end-up rendering the work again defeating the purpose of “saving time” with using overclocked components.

    FP64 = 1/32 FP32.
    So seemingly the next generation Titan is again neutered for FP64! (Same chip as this seemingly).
    What software are prosumers running that uses FP64?
    Separate from researchers looking for cheap FP64 for scientific work.

      • Billstevens
      • 3 years ago

      Not really software I would imagine, just number crunching. You need that high precision. I am sure these cards are much higher margin than even a Titan X…

        • jihadjoe

        I’d be surprised if the P6000 costs less than $6000.

        • smilingcrow

        It’s all software dude!!! What were prosumers buying the original Titan for. Video editing?

    • chuckula

    For those of you who thought the Titan X and GTX 1080 were way way too cheap…. THESE CARDS ARE FOR YOU!

      Dude, you don’t have to aim for 11 with every post, it comes across as a bit manic.

        • chuckula
        • 3 years ago

        No no no. I aimed for 12 with this post. They turned on the rest of the execution units so it’s 12 TFlops with a modest markup of… $2000 – $3000 or so over the Titan X.

          Donald Trump has two of these in his laptop no doubt; he goes to 13, the scary number.

            Have you seen the silicon die size? I mean I’ve seen it.
            Let me tell you, it’s YUGE. Absolutely YUGE die they got over there.

            Trumps hands are so yuge they make GP102 look like GP106!

            …So does that win nerdiest Trump Hands joke made?

            Cut it out, guys. If he wins he’ll build a wall in front of your houses so you’d be cut off. And the worst part is he’ll make you all pay for it.
