The newly introduced RTX 6000 ADA graphics card from NVIDIA is featured in a Reddit discussion. This is the most potent AD102 GPU model currently available on the market. However, the RTX 6000 ADA is not a gaming card. NVIDIA has a distinct range of workstation models developed for this specific purpose. This is why this card has a substantially lower TDP (300W) than RTX 4090 (450W).
According to a Redditor, the card operates at 85°C with fans at roughly 70%, and it is not louder than the RTX A6000 (the predecessor). Although it may appear excessive, it is important to understand that this is a blower-type cooler, and these cards are built to perform under severe loads for an extended period.
The RTX A6000 ADA has 18176 CUDA cores, 10% more than the RTX 4090’s 1792 cores. A greater number of cores and lower TDP are not the sole distinctions. This workstation card is packed with 48GB of 20 Gbps GDDR6 memory; therefore, its effective bandwidth is just 48 GB/s lower than that of the RTX 4090.
The card scored 30518 points in 3DMark TimeSpy Graphics and is 15% slower than RTX 4090, according to the exclusive screenshot provided. However, it may reach 36,000 points before a Windows upgrade, according to reports. However, 3DMark performance is now all over the place, and we do not know if the customer was utilizing the most recent drivers.
The 6000 ADA should at least meet the RTX 4090 scores, but because of its restricted TDP, it may have difficulty outperforming more intensive tasks. With reports of a future RTX 4090 Ti containing the same number of cores, this could indicate why this upcoming flagship gaming GPU may need close to 600W.
