RTX A6000 Specifications

Nvidia is planning to release two workstation GPUs, one of which is the RTX A6000. RTX A6000 has a full-fat GA102 GPU architecture. While the other one, RTX A40, was built on the GA104 GPU architecture. Unlike the RTX 30 series GPU, the RTX A6000 sports insane technical specifications:

  • GPU Memory: 48GB GDDR6 memory with error-correcting code (ECC)
  • Display Ports: 4x Display Port 1.4
  • Max Power Consumption: 300 W
  • Graphics Bus: PCI Express Gen 4x16

RTX A6000 Professional Features

The RTX A6000 is said to offer top-of-the-line features, including:

  • Multi-Display Support: The GPU will easily help in setting up cave automatic virtual environment (CAVE), video walls, and support for multiple 8K monitors.
  • Multi-GPU scalability: With NVLink, users can connect two RTX 6000 GPUs that can deliver 96GB of GDDR6 memory and a whopping 112 gigabytes per second of bandwidth.

Besides these, the GPU also supports other technologies like Quadro sync, dedicated video encode and decode engines, and full VR support. There's also a plethora of productivity tools, enterprise drivers support, and Nvidia Broadcast.

The Nvidia RTX A6000 is currently available for $4650 through OEM partners. It's interesting to see that just like the RTX 30 series GPUs, the RTX A6000 is also retailing at a lower price than the Quadro RTX 8000, which launched at a massive price tag of $10,000.
