The RTX 6000, a workstation graphics card from NVIDIA based on the Ada GPU architecture, is currently on sale for $7350 US. The Pro driver suite will be used by the NVIDIA RTX 6000 graphics card, which targets the workstation market.
Even if gaming is not meant for it, it may still be done on it because NVIDIA’s drivers are quite adaptable. One might easily become confused by the new card’s naming scheme, but one should keep in mind that the model names for the Ampere generation began with an “A,” whereas those for the Ada generation don’t. Instead of RTX A6000, the card is simply referred to as the RTX 6000.
The GeForce RTX 4090 is outperformed by the NVIDIA RTX 6000 in terms of specifications. At 142, there are just 2 SMs that are disabled and can support up to 18,176 CUDA cores.
The RTX 4090 GPU has 11% fewer cores and SMs than that. However, NVIDIA undoubtedly has room for an even more expensive model that will utilise those 2 remaining SM units. The card has a similar boost frequency of 2.5 GHz and doubles the amount of VRAM (EEC), with 48 GB as opposed to the RTX 4090’s 24 GB. The card does use slower 20 Gbps GDDR6X memory dies as opposed to the gaming graphics card’s 21 Gbps dies.
The NVIDIA RTX 6000 “Ada” graphics card has a performance of 91.1 TFLOPs for FP32, 210.6 TFLOPs for RT, and 1457 TFLOPs for Tensor cores. The RTX 6000 is rated at under 300W, making it quite an efficiency powerhouse compared to the RTX 4090, which needs 450W TBP. However, all of that added power and wonderful workstation features come at a price.
Currently, the CompSource outlet has the NVIDIA RTX 6000 graphics card listed at $8200 US, while ShopBLT has the same model listed for $7350 US. That costs about 4.5 times as much as the RTX 4090 graphics card. It is also about 50% to 60% more expensive than the A6000, which was sold for $4500 to $5,000 US.
