NVIDIA's New RTX 6000 & L40 Ampere GPUs

Here's a first look at NVIDIA's new professional GPUs.

During its GTC 2020 online conference, Nvidia presented the RTX 6000 and RTX L40, their first professional GPUs based on the new Ampere architecture.

The RTX 6000 (also known as Quadro RTX 6000), which will be available later this year, outperforms Nvidia’s Turing-based Quadro RTX 6000 and Quadro RTX 8000 workstation cards. The team states that compatible GPU-based renderers perform 2-3x better compared to the Turing cards' results.

The RTX L40 is a new passively cooled version of the 600 which can be used in servers. The L40 will ship in 2021. Unfortunately, little is known about the new products' prices.

"The ability to double or triple the resolution and vastly accelerate our real-time visualization of massive, complex building models in cityscapes with the NVIDIA RTX 6000 is super impressive," said Paul Renner, visualization manager at KPF.

The new professional GPUs feature 48GB of GDDR6 memory, NVLink support, and four DisplayPort 1.4 outputs.
