The HP Nvidia Quadro K6000 Graphics Card with 12GB RAM is certified for use with the following HP Z-series workstations: Z420 (AMO only), Z620, and Z820. The K6000 is a professional computer graphics card for applications that require high-performance dedicated GPU processing power, especially applications that take advantage of Nvidia's CUDA parallel processing technology. The card features driver and API support for Windows as well as many Linux and Solaris distributions.
Providing up to a 288 GB/s memory bandwidth, the K6000 features 12GB of DDR5 RAM attached to a 384-bit memory interface--which work together to move data to and from the GPU as efficiently, and with as little latency as possible. In addition, 2880 CUDA cores (stream processors) allow the card to perform hundreds of computations simultaneously.
The K6000 can be connected to a variety of display types, including computer monitors, HDTVs, broadcast video monitors, projectors, as well as 4K and 3D displays. It features a dual-link DVI-I (digital and analog) port, a dual-link DVI-D (digital only) port, and two DisplayPort ports with DP 1.2 support. Through DisplayPort it can drive displays up to 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution at up to 60 Hz and through dual-link DVI it can drive digital displays at up to 2560 x 1600 resolution at up to 60 Hz. In addition, it supports professional 3D displays, and features a stereo connector that will provide synchronization for certain types of active 3D glasses.
For extended desktops, multi-view applications, immersive gaming, and other multi-monitor arrangements, up to four displays can be connected concurrently to one card. For video walls and other larger multi-display setups, up to four K6000s can be installed in one workstation, allowing a single computer to manage a total of 16 displays.
In addition to driving displays, the card features broad API support including CUDA, OpenCL, DirectX 11.2, Shader Model 5.0, and OpenGL 4.3, allowing it to provide GPU acceleration for a growing number of GPU-aware applications. Applications that benefit from GPU acceleration include video editing, 3D animation, CAD, computer modeling, cryptography, complex mathematical computations, and any other applications involving calculations that GPU architecture is more efficient at processing than the CPU. The card can be even used as a standalone parallel processing solution when installed alongside an existing graphics card.
