Built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the NVIDIA RTX A6000 gives designers, engineers, scientists, and artists everything they need to meet the most graphics- and compute-intensive workflows. The RTX A6000 features the latest generation of RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and CUDA® cores, resulting in unrivaled rendering, AI, graphics, and compute performance.
NVIDIA RTX is the visual computing solution of choice for demanding enterprise deployments, with a broad range of professional applications certified, tested by leading independent software vendors (ISVs) and workstation manufacturers, and backed by a global team of support specialists.
NVIDIA® RTX technology has forever changed professional visual computing. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture leverages the power of RTX to significantly improve rendering, graphics, AI, and compute workload performance. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture, which has been meticulously engineered and features cutting-edge innovations, takes RTX to new heights for professional workloads.
Third Generation Tensor Cores
The new Tensor Float 32 (TF32) precision increases training throughput by up to 5X over the previous generation, allowing AI and data science models to be trained faster without requiring any code changes. Hardware support for structural sparsity doubles inferencing throughput. Tensor Cores also bring AI to graphics with features such as DLSS, AI denoising, and enhanced editing for a limited number of applications.
Second Generation RT Cores
Second-generation RT Cores deliver massive speedups for workloads like photorealistic rendering of movie content and virtual prototyping of product designs, with up to 2X the throughput of the previous generation and the ability to run ray tracing with either shading or denoising capabilities concurrently.
This technology also improves the speed with which ray-traced motion blur is rendered, resulting in faster results with greater visual accuracy.
Ampere Architecture based Cuda Cores
The CUDA cores in the NVIDIA Ampere architecture provide twice the processing speed for single-precision floating point (FP32) operations and are up to 2X more power efficient than Turing GPUs. For graphics workflows like 3D model development and compute workflows like desktop simulation for computer-aided engineering, this results in significant performance gains (CAE).
PCI Express Gen 4
PCI Express Gen 4.0 (PCIe Gen 4.0) is supported by NVIDIA Ampere architecture-based GPUs, which provide 2X the bandwidth of PCIe Gen 3.0. For data-intensive tasks like AI and data science, this improves data transfer speeds from CPU memory. GPU direct memory access (DMA) transfers are also accelerated by faster PCIe performance, allowing for faster video data transfers from GPUDirect® for video-enabled devices and speedier input/output (I/O) with GPUDirect Storage.
Third Gen NVLink
Users can connect two GPUs using third-generation NVIDIA NVLink® technology to share GPU performance and memory. Professionals can tackle the largest rendering, AI, virtual reality, and visual computing workloads with up to 112 gigabytes per second (GB/s) of bidirectional bandwidth and combined graphics memory of up to 96 GB. The new NVLink connector also has a lower Z height, allowing NVLink to be used in a wider range of chassis.
Engineers, researchers, and data scientists can use NGC support to access NVIDIA-tuned, tested, certified, and maintained containers for the most popular deep learning frameworks, as well as third-party managed HPC containers, NVIDIA HPC visualization containers, and partner applications.
Rich Visual Workspace
With the DisplayPort 1.4a standard, you can get stunning imagery with movie-quality anti-aliasing techniques, high-dynamic-range (HDR) color support, higher refresh rates, and up to 8K screen resolution at 60 Hz from a single cable.
