NVIDIA has also announced five new products in the Quadro lineup. All new cards will utilize the latest Pascal architecture and replace older Maxwell based cards. They are based on a range of Pascal GPUs and will have various price and performance tiers.
Pascal Quadro P4000 Details and Specs
The Quadro P4000 replaces the older Quadro M4000 graphics card. It comes with the new 16nm GP104 GPU core that houses 1792 CUDA Cores and 8 GB of GDDR5 memory. The memory runs along a 256-bit memory bus interface and comes with 256 GB/s bandwidth. The total compute power for this card is rated at 5.3 TF (Teraflops) and comes in a single slot package. The TDP of the card is rated at 105W so power is fed through a 6-Pin connector. There are four DP 1.4 connectors on the card.
Pascal Quadro P2000 Details and Specs
The Quadro P2000 is replacing the Quadro M2000 with the new GP106 graphics core. The card features 1024 CUDA Cores and 5 GB of GDDR5 memory. The card uses a 160-bit bus interface due to its unusual 5 Gigs of VRAM. There’s also 3 TFLOPs of computing power on this card and a rated TDP of 75W. Quadro P2000 also comes in the single-slot package with four DP1.4 connectors.
Pascal Quadro P1000, P600, P400 Details and Specs
Next up, we have the Quadro P1000, P600 and P400 products, all of which are based on the 14nm GP107 GPU core. The core configs for these variants are 640, 384 and 256 while the memory config is 4 GB, 2 GB and 2 GB GDDR5, respectively. The cards feature 1.8 TFLOPs, 1.1 TFLOPs and 0.6 TFLOPs of compute performance, respectively. All cards come in low profile form factors with TDP less than 50W. The Quadro P1000 and P600 feature four Mini DP1.4 connectors while the P400 features only three display ports.
Performance for these new products is rated at over 80% faster for the P1000 over its predecessor, over 40% faster for the P600 over its predecessor and 2x faster for the P400 over its predecessor. These incremental performance gains do bring a ton of productivity to workstation users. Specifications for the entire Pascal lineup can be seen below:
