Nvidia releases new RTX 6000 workstation graphics card
With the release of the Ada Lovelace architecture GPU, NVIDIA has updated the GeForce graphics card product line, and also launched the NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation, the first workstation graphics card based on the new architecture, ushering in a new era of neurographics that combines AI and simulation.
NVIDIA says the NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation delivers the features, functionality, and performance to meet the challenges of today’s professional workflows in the most challenging business environments. It is based on the Ada Lovelace architecture GPU, combining the third-generation RT core, the fourth-generation Tensor core, and the new-generation CUDA core with 48GB of video memory to provide unprecedented rendering, artificial intelligence, graphics, and computing performance. Although Nvidia did not provide more detailed information, the NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation should be equipped with an AD102 chip with similar specifications to the GeForce RTX 4090.
Like its predecessor, the NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation comes with 48GB of GDDR6 memory with ECC. The graphics card is a dual-slot thickness with a power consumption of 300W. Its heat sink adopts a relatively traditional design and does not seem to support the NVLink bridge. The display output is 4 DisplayPort 1.4 interfaces, no HDMI interface is provided.
Nvidia claims that the NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation will deliver two to four times the performance boost in enterprise environments, designers and engineers can drive cutting-edge simulation-based workflows to build and validate more complex designs; artists can create more engaging content and build immersive virtual environments; scientists, researchers, and medical professionals can have supercomputing power on their workstations, accelerating the development of drugs and procedures.
NVIDIA confirmed that the NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation workstation graphics card will be available to global distribution partners and manufacturers starting in December this year.
