The Quadro K6000 Graphics Card from HP is a professional computer graphics card for GPU-aware applications that require or benefit from dedicated graphics processing power. It features driver and API support for Windows as well as many Linux distributions.
Alongside the GPU, the K6000 features 12GB of DDR5 RAM and a 384-bit memory interface, which together work to move data to and from the processors as efficiently, and with as little latency, as possible. In addition, 2880 CUDA Cores (stream processors) not only act as general purpose shaders to render display graphics, they also allow the card to perform hundreds of computations simultaneously when interacting with APIs or programs that support parallel processing.
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. To support professional 3D displays, it features a 3D stereo connector that will provide synchronization for certain types of active 3D glasses.
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 compared to the CPU. The card can be even used as a standalone parallel processing solution when installed alongside an existing graphics card.
