The professional graphics accelerator NVIDIA RTX A6000 Ada Generation was presented back in September last year. But the sale of graphics cards for workstations has only just begun, writes the VideoCardz portal.
A novelty in Ada Lovelace architecture has been flashing in store databases since November of last year. However, sales started this month. NVIDIA announced its official cost – $6800. That is 46% more expensive than the predecessor of the Ampere generation. It’s also 4.25 times more expensive than the gaming flagship GeForce RTX 4090.
The professional graphics accelerator NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation uses the AD102 GPU with 18,176 CUDA cores, which is 11% more than the gaming model GeForce RTX 4090. In addition, the chip contains 568 Tensor cores and 142 RT cores. The graphics card has 48 GB of GDDR6 memory with error correction function (ECC) and a speed of 20 Gb/s per pin on board. The maximum theoretical memory bandwidth is 960 GB/s, which is 25% higher than the previous generation RTX A6000 model, which is equipped with 16 GB/s memory chips per pin.
The declared power consumption of the NVIDIA RTX A6000 Ada generation is 300 watts. The card received a new 12+4 pin 12VHPWR power connector. Also, the novelty has an active cooling system and works with a PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. The accelerator is equipped with four DisplayPort 1.4 connectors.
