NVIDIA is ready to launch its RTX A6000 series "Ada" professional-visualization graphics cards. These cards are targeted at the same market demographic as the NVIDIA Quadro series of the old—serious 3D content creation. The RTX A6000 leads the pack, and is based on the 4 nm "AD102" silicon (the same one powering the GeForce RTX 4090). The A6000 is better endowed than the RTX 4090 at the silicon-level, although operating at lower GPU clock-speeds, for its tighter 300 W power-limit (compared to 450 W of the RTX 4090).

The A6000 "Ada" is endowed with 18,176 CUDA cores across 142 SM, compared to the 16,384 CUDA cores across 128 SM of the RTX 4090. It also gets a higher number of Tensor cores, at 568. The defining differentiator between the A6000 and RTX 4090 has to be memory, with the pro-vis card getting 48 GB of ECC GDDR6 memory across the chip's 384-bit memory bus, clocked at 20 Gbps (960 GB/s memory bandwidth); compared to the 24 GB of 21 Gbps GDDR6X (1008 GB/s) of the RTX 4090. Also, the card enables all three NVDEC and NVENC video hardware-accelerators physically present on the AD102, for six independent accelerated transcoding streams.
 
The card features a 16-pin ATX 12VHPWR connector, and probably includes a 3x 8-pin to 16-pin adapter, as the card's typical board power is just 300 W. The reference board features a 2-slot design with a high-density channel-type heatsink with vapor-chamber plate; and a lateral-flow blower. There is no NVLink support. Leadtek, PNY, and ELSA are expected to be the board partners for this card. Both PNY and Leadtek put out pricing, with the PNY card being cheaper at USD $7,377.
 
In my personal opinion the consumer NVIDIA video cards are overpriced and so are the professional NVIDIA video cards. I hope AMD can offer more down to earth pricing.

    I wish I could leverage a card like this, and justify the need for the double precision and floating point capability.

    But instead, I don’t do anything that would justify this card lol.

    And a proper blower card too. And at a 300w TDP cooling is doable with a blower fan. IDK why folks say they are loud. my 98ti (250w TDB) has a blower cooler and its not more loud then the 11DBA fans in its case. sure if I crank the fan up to 11 its loud but 98% of the time the fan never goes over 55%  Blowers a good coolers if the case has good air flow.
     
    /end rant.

    For the exact same surface area, and the same amount of airflow, and the same ambient temperature, a blower cooler doesn't cool nearly as well. A blower cooler will always be louder than an axial cooler in order to provide the same amount of cooling with all other things being equal.

    The reason is the length of the air channel. By the time the air is half way down a blower heatsink, the air has already absorbed the majority of the heat it is capable of absorbing, so the last part of the heatsink is very ineffective. In order to be comparable, the blower heatsink needs to be considerably larger, or the fans need to spin considerably faster.

    A blower cooler isn't bad. It's just not as good. It is only better when the application doesn't allow for alternatives.

    No NVLink or SLI support, sadly.

    Impressive, but $7k? Ouch.
     
    Waiting for the day we will be able to add our own memory to a graphics card.
