Nvidia appears to be readying new members of its professional Quadro range of graphics cards in time for SIGGRAPH 2015. The latest Nvidia graphics driver for the Quadro range of graphics cards includes a telltale text string revealing Nvidia's intentions, reports VideoCardz.
The new driver adds support for:
NVIDIA_DEV.13F0.1152.103C = "NVIDIA Quadro M5000"
NVIDIA_DEV.13F1.1153.103C = "NVIDIA Quadro M4000"
NVIDIA_DEV.13F2= "NVIDIA Tesla M60"
At the SIGGRAPH event last year Nvidia revealed details of the Quadro Kxx2. With SIGGRAPH 2015 scheduled to start on 9th August (runs until 13th Aug, takes place in downtown LA) it looks like the latest Quadro graphics cards will be also launched at this commercial graphics conference and exhibition.
While there are not any details of substance revealed within the driver text strings, it is predicted that the newest members of the Quadro professional graphics range will be based upon the Maxwell architecture GM204GL graphics processor. It's a 256-bit GPU so 4GB or 8GB frame buffer versions should be released.
Accompanying the new Quadro cards will be the Tesla M60, according to the latest Nvidia .INF file. This GPU based general purpose computing product is expected to be based upon a fully fledged GM204 GPU with 8GB of GDDR5 memory.
