This Is the ‘Fastest GPU Ever’ Made

Illustration for article titled This Is the ‘Fastest GPU Ever’ Made

NVIDIA has just announced an insane new GPU. Designed for (wealthy) graphic professionals, the Kepler-based Quadro K6000 is, apparently, "the fastest and most capable GPU ever built".

With twice the capacity of the Quadro 6000 that it replaces, the specs on this thing are just crazy: it has 12GB of super-fast DDR5 graphics memory, 2,880 streaming multiprocessor cores, ultra-low latency video I/O, and the ability to drive four simultaneous displays at up to 4K resolution. So, you probably need this on your home PC, right?

Just as an example of the power of this thing, Nissan can apparently load almost-complete vehicle models using it. And that's incredibly impressive. But impressive will come at a cost. While there are no firm pricing details available at present, the K5000 costs $2,250— so brace yourself. It'll be available in the fall. [NVIDIA]

I wouldn't say it's exclusively for the wealthy. I could buy one and I'm strictly middle class.

Of course, I couldn't pay my mortgage that month, it being less than the cost of this card, but I could totally swing it!
