I just installed a computer at work today with a K5000, 128GB ram and duel Xeon E5-2687W. I dont think the K5000 cuts it

Looks like a fully unlocked Titan (or Titan Ultra) with double the amount of RAM to me. I can see this helping animation companies and game developers a lot, and I'm sure more than a few enthusiasts wouldn't mind "borrowing" one of these. :laugh:

I will still keep with my Titan though as it's more than enough for the gaming I do. :nutkick:

Yes.

Although its not competing with the W9000. The W9000 competes with the K5000

The K6000 is Nvidias response to AMD FirePro S10000 which has been out for 7-8months. SP and DP are almost similar with the S10000 slightly ahead.

You can only drive 4 monitors with the K6000 as oppose to 6 with the S10000 but you get 12GB of memory instead of 6GB (3GBx2)

S10000 sells for as low as $3,000 (MSRP $3599) and I don't think the K6000 will compete with that price range. Expect it to be from $3,599 - $4,599.

Whatever, it will be old shitty kepler which does not support Dx11.1 fully...
Nv in trouble TSMC cant make 20nm chips before 2014 Q2-Q3, and the games just coming.

Luckily the bits they don't support have no relevance to gaming. Good effort though, AMD would pay you if they could afford it.

Yes and No.
S10000's theoretical SP32 is 5.91 TFlops/sec against the K6000's 5.2 TFlops/sec. The S10000 is limited to 1:4 double precision (1.48 TFlops), while the K6000 is at 1:3 rate (1.73 TFlops)....even though some sites are quoting ~1.4 TF. Quite how 5.2 single precision divided by three equates to 1.4 IDK.

Obviously, the actual performance is dependant upon the software suites used, and how closely tailored they are to the relative architectures.

And clock it at what? 750MHz? I don't see the point, Kepler arch (like almost anything else) gives diminishing returns, GTX 780 can clock better than TITANs, and for the most part, will be faster max OC vs max OC, than them. TITAN Ultra or whatever won't do much to change that.


God damn it, where's AMD's new GPUs.

A Titan Ultra is unlikley simply because Nvidia would want to use all of the fully functional binned cores for these significantly more profitable Quadro cards.

Well this is already clocked at 900Mhz within a 225W power envelope, so there is plenty of performance left on the table should nV feel the need to respond once AMD finally launch something new.

I don't think AMD needs to launch something new. The K5000 was released in Aug 2012 when AMD also released their FirePro Wx000 Series line of cards. Like I mentioned before the AMD FirePro S10000 was available November 2012. The Quadro K6000 has a release window of Sep-Nov 2013. That's 1 full year of no competition. The Quadro K5000 (GK104) isn't much of a competitor when it comes to DP.

So the need to finally release something new has been there for Nvidia for almost a year.

My comment was more regarding the need/potential of a Titan Ultra coming to the consumer market, although it's funny you say AMD have no competition in a market nVidia dominate.

I'm sure nVidia's established client base welcome this card coming to the market.

So the need to finally release something new has been there for Nvidia for almost a year.
There's always a "need" to release new product regardless of vendor. I think you'll find that a complete lack of professional drivers makes AMD a non-starter for many design houses.
With Nvidia owning 80% of the of the pro graphics market based upon Fermi (or older) architectures holding their own against the latest cards (see Fluffmeister's Hot Hardware review link- or the TH review for instance), it could be argued that maybe other vendors should be just as -if not more concerned.

Bear in mind that:
1. Actual performance doesn't reflect theoretical performance ( note Fluffmeister's Hot Hardware FirePro review, as well as Tom's review). Theoretically, castrated Fermi based cards shouldn't be able to live with fully enabled Tahiti. Actuality is somewhat different.
2. The pro market numbers for both Nvidia and AMD will likely decrease slightly as Intel pushes Xeon Phi into the HPC arena. On that note, the GK110's closest competitor in theoretical performance for a single GPU is the Xeon Phi at around 85% of its rated theoretical performance....actual performance seems to be another matter entirely...
