Later this week we’re going to get details on the NVIDIA Quadro M6000 graphics card at GTC 2015. Over the weekend, no less than the musician Deadmau5 himself showed the web that he has not one, but two of these massive cards in his tour build right this minute. Deadmau5 speaks of how he’ll be using the cards to both “debayer 6K” and “still have insane GPU power for everything else” with these cards. He goes on to thank NVIDIA and suggest that “tour visuals cometh!”
It’s expected that the NVIDIA Quadro M6000 will run something similar to what we already know about the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X. In CUDE cores and memory, at least. That means 3072 CUDA cores and 12GB of GDDR5 memory per card.
More than enough power to create a fabulous concert experience for those looking for visuals at a Deadmau5 concert.
Below you’ll see another Deadmau5 Instagram bit of some graphics rendering. This we can safely assume is running on the system you see above.
The first place you’ll want to watch for this card is at the opening keynote for GTC 2015. That’ll be taking place on Tuesday, the 17th of March (tomorrow), at 9AM Pacific Time. We’ll be there to bring you everything this talk has to offer as well as more graphics-intensive action from San Jose at GTC 2015 throughout the rest of the week!
