IFA 2019 | NVIDIA announces the mobile Quadro RTX 6000 GPU, sets new Ace Reference Design standard for mobile workstations
After having introduced the mobile Quadro RTX lineup at Computex a few months ago, NVIDIA is now introducing a new member to the mobile Quadro RTX family at IFA 2019 — the mobile Quadro RTX 6000. NVIDIA didn't offer much info about the card itself during the keynote and focused more on capabilities of the Asus ProArt StudioBook One. The ProArt StudioBook One is built on NVIDIA's "Ace" Reference Design and is one of the most powerful workstation notebooks available.
The Ace Reference Design advocates the use of ultra-thin titanium vapor chambers, NVIDIA Optimus, a slim, compact 300W power adapter, and a professional 4K 120 Hz Pantone-validated display with 100% Adobe RGB coverage.
While the desktop Quadro RTX 6000 features 4,608 CUDA cores, 576 Tensor Cores, and 72 RT Cores with 24 GB GDDR6 memory, NVIDIA has been quite mum on the exact specifications of the mobile Quadro RTX 6000. However, we do know that the mobile version also sports 24 GB GDDR6 VRAM. NVIDIA said that the mobile Quadro RTX 6000 address the significant performance gap that currently exists between the mobile Quadro RTX 5000 and the desktop Quadro RTX 6000. We hope to learn more about the new GPU in the coming days.
NVIDIA did show some performance figures, though. The performance of the mobile Quadro RTX 6000 is said to be within 10% of that of its desktop counterpart in graphics, video editing, rendering, and AI workflows. NVIDIA is also announcing support for real time ray tracing in more than 40 professional applications including Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Autodesk Arnold, Blender, Renderman, and more.
This year, 12 new RTX Studio desktops and laptops from various OEMs would be made available bringing the total number of RTX Studio systems to 39. These include the Asus ProArt series and Acer ConceptD 5 series in laptops alongside several desktops including Asus ProArt Station, Acer ConceptD 500 and ConceptD 900, HP Envy desktop, and the MSI Prestige P100.
