The day after Nvidia announced the RTX 4000 series of gaming cards, it also introduced the next generation of workstation cards based on the same architecture, Ada. So far, the company hasn’t revealed how much it will cost.
We must insist workplace GPUs here, these are aimed at professionals and will have eye-popping prices – the RTX 6000 is listed on several US retailers with prices between $7,378 and $8,210, according to data unearthed by video cardz.

The Nvidia RTX 6000 card has 18,176 CUDA cores, which is 11% more than the RTX 4090’s 16,384 cores. W for the game card. Even so, the maximum boost clock is capped at the same 2.5 GHz. Another thing to note is that the cooling has been switched to a blower type fan, which is the preferred solution for professional environments (it’s louder, but less likely to overheat).
The main difference between the RTX 6000 and the RTX 4090 is graphics memory. The GPU of the workstation is equipped with 48 GB, which is double the size of the game card. It is also a different type of memory, GDDR6 with ECC (ie integrated error correction) . The memory bus remains 384 bits wide, so the bandwidth is basically the same (21 Gbps versus 20 Gbps).

Note that Nvidia no longer uses the Quadro brand for these workstation GPUs. Even more confusingly, the card that the RTX 6000 (Ada) replaces is called the RTX A6000 (Ampere).
