NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 GPU Review


NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 Specifications

The specifications for the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 uses 24GB GDDR6 memory and 295W of power.

One can immediately see that this is a card that looks more similar to the Quadro RTX than the Quadro RTX 5000.

The big question is how does the GPU perform. For that, we will move to our testing.

Testing the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000

Here is our test configuration:

Here is the obligatory GPU-Z shot of the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000:

GPU-Z shows the primary stats of our testing the Quadro RTX 6000. The GPU clocks in at 1440 MHz and can boost up to 11770 MHz. Pixel Fillrates run at 169.9 GPixels/s, and Texture Fillrate comes in at 509.8 GTexel/s, while memory runs at 1750 MHz. Again, we see 24GB of GDDR6X memory on the Quadro RTX 6000.

Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.


  1. One of the big differences between the RTX Titan and the RTX 6000 is the ability to RDMA, aka, GPU-Direct DMA between machines.

    I’d love to see that tested using Mellanox RDMA ConnextX 5 or higher cards on a 25, 40 or 100gb VPI or ethernet connection.

    I’ve a dual 2080ti machine in a network that runs gig-E and QDR Infiniband. I have to explicitly tell NCCL to not look on the IB network for peers. So, I think you may be able to do RDMA with the gamer cards too.

  3. No, none of the “consumer” range cards can do GPU-direct DMA, not even the Titan RTX. I’ve tried directly in the API and no dice, period. The RTX2080ti definitely will not, the API always returns an error code of “no permission/feature unsupported”.

  4. Hey guys!

    Not sure what is up with that Octane benchmark guys but I think you should recheck the data you’ve gathered so far.

    Given all the other reviewers and the official benchmark results page on Otoy’s page an RTX 2080ti performs about the same as the Titan RTX. The 3090 is typically about 2x as fast as the 2080ti in that benchmark – not quite the difference you’ve benchmarked.

    Seems like something is super off there as the benchmark isn’t VRAM limited and so even a 2080 should be positioned a lot differently.

    Are you sure you are running the latest benchmark? I can’t seem to reproduce these results on my end at al..
