Nvidia Working on Mobile-based Quadro GPU, Toned Down Version Of The P6000 And P5000?
It seems that Nvidia is readying to announce the mobile-based Quadro GPU. The company has just demoed the mobile version of the Pascal-powered Quadro GPU at the SIGGRAPH 2016 expo however, specifications of this latest workstation chip for notebooks are not known yet.
According to a report from Fudzilla, the GPU is almost ready and works flawlessly. The report suggests that the GPU clock speed will be lower than the desktop variant in order to reduce the overall TDP. If previous reports are to be believed, the mobile-based Quadro GPU will be a cut-down version of the Quadro P5000 and P6000 which have TDPs rated at 180W and 250W, respectively.
The Quadro P6000 is the most advanced workstation to date, being powered by the full fat GP102 with 3840 CUDA cores, 240 TMUs and 96 ROPs. The card is expected to feature a boost clock of around 1.5GHz, and an amazing 12 TFLOPS of compute performance.
In terms of memory, P6000 packs 24GB of GDDR5X VRAM which is clocked in at 10GHz. The memory is connected via a 256-bit bus which gives us a total bandwidth of 480 GB/s. For power, the card features an 8+6 Pin configuration, and for output it includes four Display Port 1.4 and a single DVI-D connector.
Moving to the younger sibling, the Quadro P5000 is based on the full die configuration of the GP104 GPU featuring 2560 CUDA cores, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The card has a 16GB of GDDR5X memory clocked at 10GHz on a 256-bit bus for a total of 256GB/s bandwidth. The GPU clock speeds are not known yet.
Both the Quadro P6000 and P5000 are powerful enough to run up to four 5K displays at 60 Hz refresh rate.
Details regarding the mobile-based Quadro GPU are scarce, but we’re keeping our eyes out and will update you with the latest as it happens.
