Nvidia Outs New GM206 based Quadro M2000 with Support for 5K and 8K Displays
Although the release of next generation Pascal GPU architecture is only a weeks away, Nvidia won’t let up with new graphics card launches. The US based chip maker has just released a new “affordable” professional graphics card, the Quadro M2000.
Based on Nvidia’s 28nm GM206 “Maxwell” architecture, the Quadro M2000 features nearly the same core specifications as the 75W GTX 950 card. Being the lowest member of the Maxwell Quadro lineup, the M2000 includes a total of 768 CUDA cores, 48 texture mapping units, 16 raster operation units, and 4GB of memory on a 128-bit GDDR5 interface.
The core speed is clocked at 1188 MHz with the memory clocked at 6.60 GHz, offering a total bandwidth of 106 GB/s — around 26GB/s more than its predecessor.
Like a series of low power GTX 950s based off of the GM206, the Quadro M2000 won’t require a PCIe power connector, coming in with a slim single slot form factor with four DisplayPort 1.2. The card is capable of driving up to four 4K monitors simultaneously, as well as supports 5K and 8K resolution displays along with the Quadro-exclusive nView MultiDisplay feature.
The pricing isn’t officially confirmed yet, but the Quadro M2000 is expected to carry a price tag of around $550 in the United States.
