NVIDIA unveiled its new flagship technology at SIGGRAPH – the NVIDIA Quadro K6000 GPU. Based on NVIDIA’s Kepler architecture, the Quadro K6000 GPU delivers five-times higher compute performance and nearly double the graphics capability of its predecessor, the NVIDIA Quadro 6000 GPU.

The Quadro K6000 GPU will enable animation and VFX organizations to tackle visualization and analysis projects of unprecedented size and scope.

“The Kepler features are key to our next generation of real-time lighting and geometry handling,” said Guido Quaroni, Pixar vice president of software R&D. “We were thrilled to get an early look at the K6000. The added memory and other features allow our artists to see much more of the final scene in a real-time, interactive form, and allow many more artistic iterations.”

“The NVIDIA Quadro K6000 GPU is the highest performance, most capable GPU ever created for the professional graphics market,” said Ed Ellett, senior vice president, professional solutions group at NVIDIA. “It will significantly change the game for animators, digital designers and engineers, enabling them to make the impossible possible.”

NVIDIA also launched a new line of professional graphics GPUs for notebook computers – the NVIDIA Quadro K5100M GPU. The Quadro K5100M anchors a new line of workstation notebook graphics that includes the Quadro K4100M, K3100M, K2100M, K1100M, K610M and K510M GPUs.

Both GPUs are expected to ship in the fall.
