In October, NVIDIA launched the Quadro P6000 and P5000 for workstations and professional users. Both graphics cards were extremely costly that we have not seen reviews going around the web. That is why HotWardware conducted a series of gaming benchmarks on these new graphics cards and found that Quadro P6000 outperforms Titan X Pascal in both 3DMark and Hitman.
NVIDIA Quadro P6000 Benchmarks
The Quadro P6000 and P5000 both graphics cards are designed for workstations and professional users and not for gamers or normal user. That explains its high price, the P6000 costs $ 4800 and the P5000 $ 1900.
What is quite interesting that the Quadro P6000 built on a full GP102 GPU core, which implies 3840 CUDA Core, 240 TMUs and 96 ROPs as opposed to the Titan X Pascal which contains 3584 CUDA cores, 224 TMUs and 96 ROPs.
In terms of price and performance these benchmarks give us an idea of the potential of NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti, which is rumored to be announced in a few days at CES 2017.
In Time Spy, the P6000 achieves 8698 points, compared to the 8175 Titan X Pascal. On the games side, it shows an average of 10 FPS difference between Quadro P6000 and Titan X Pascal on the HITMAN in 4K with Ultra preset and FXAA. The HITMAN benchmark was even running with DirectX 12, which means that in DX11 you could expect even better performance.
When they compared the NVIDIA Quadro P6000 to the AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100, the reviewer writes that while the latter could occasionally perform better than the P6000, the additional cores and memory of the NVIDIA product provide more advantages when the graphics cards are overworked. Chiapetta cites as an example the Energy view set of SPECviewperf in which the P6000 is more than six times faster than the WX 7100.
Regardless of its price, it is surprising to see that a graphics card for workstation outperforms a Titan X Pascal. NVIDIA already announced that they will showcase Mass Effect: Andromeda running on the PC for the first time, and needless to say it will be running with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
