The Quadro K6000 was a enthusiast-class professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in July 2013. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GK110B graphics processor, in its GK110-890-B1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GK110B graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 561 mm² and 7,080 million transistors. It features 2880 shading units, 240 texture mapping units and 48 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 12,288 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 384-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 797 MHz, which can be boosted up to 902 MHz, memory is running at 1502 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA Quadro K6000 draws power from 2x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 225 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 2x DisplayPort. Quadro K6000 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 267 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 5265 US Dollars.

GK110B GPU Notes

L1 Cache is configurable from 16 KB up to 48 KB per SMX

GK110 chips have 5 Rasterizers each capable of 8 pixels per clock and are limited to 40 pixels per clock and because of that it can't feed all 48 ROPs when they all require data at the same time.
Luckily, additional ROPs can be used when for example MSAA is enabled (because it doesn't require additional data from rasterizers, while giving more work to ROPs).
