PNY releases a passively-cooled version of its Quadro RTX 8000 card
PNY has developed a new version of its NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 card. Like its pre-existing counterpart on the market, it has 48GB of DDR6 memory (with ECC). It also has 4608 CUDA cores and 72 ray-tracing cores, as well as 576 tensor cores, thanks to its powerful GPU; however, it does not have any fans.
Besides this detail, it looks much like other up-to-date NVIDIA Quadro RTX cards from this manufacturer. Nevertheless, PNY asserts that it is capable of 14.9 TFLOPS in terms of peak single-precision (or FP32) performance and 29.9 TFLOPS of FP16 performance, as well as 119.4 of deep-learning Tensor TFLOPS.
The passively-cooled NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 card is also rated to generate 10 giga-rays per second. Besides this, it supports PCI Express 3.0 and has a maximal power requirement of 250 watts. The new GPU is not available to buy yet, although it may be found on sites such as Amazon, Best Buy and B&H soon. PNY does not specify how much it costs; for reference, the active-cooling variant of the same card currently goes for about US$5700.
