The RTX A6000 is getting closer and closer to reaching the PC public, and because of that, NVIDIA decided to make a new announcement for its GPU, revealing its suggested retail price of $ 5,500. Unlike other Ampere- based models, this professional graphics card will not have a Founders Edition as it will only be offered by NVIDIA’s partner manufacturers.
The new graphics card represents a renewed segment of NVIDIA’s professional GPU market. In addition to the company ditching the Quadro name, the graphics is a great option for those who use hardware professionally but not necessarily for servers.
For data centers, NVIDIA has the RTX A40 ready, while the RTX A6000 will come equipped with the full GA102 GPU, along with 10,752 CUDA cores and a performance of up to 38.7 TFLOP, being about 3 TFLOPs more powerful than the RTX 3090.
What is also striking is a large amount of GPU memory: 48 GB GDDR6. Unlike other high-end offerings, the memory is not GDDR6X as NVIDIA opted to offer a larger amount (it would not be possible to reach 48GB with an X memory).
In terms of connections, the RTX A6000 supports NVLink and also features 4 DisplayPort ports, no HDMI.
At the moment, this GPU has a suggested price of $ 5,500, but that could change due to the same problem as its younger sisters in the Ampere family: lack of stock. If the new graph has the same success as the others, it will surely have the same luck.
