NVIDIA, the leading manufacturer of professional graphic solutions has unleashed their flagship Quadro K6000 graphics card for the workstation market. After a long wait, workstation users would get their hands on a fully enabled GK110 based GPU that features large amount of cores and a huge memory pool enough to fullfill their computing needs. (PC, Tech)

Each number represents a mine somewhere around that box. Either above, below, to the left or right, or diagonally. It doesn't start you with any boxes clicked so you need to click on them yourself. If you click on a box with 1 and it's a single box, you still have a good chance to lose. Once you click on a box that happens to be a larger square with a bunch of numbers, then it's easier to start off at that point and work your way out. Right clicking will set whether there's a mine or whether you don't know you'll come back later but there could be a mine.

Yea but I'm still kind of confused on why this is posted on N4G.

While you can technically game on it that is NOT what this card is for.

Nvidia is hurt because they are not part of next -gen so they are on mission to make next-gen consoles look meaningless and weak before they even release. Lame move

NVidia was offered the ps4 first, they declined
Nvidia wanted no part of the garbage profits of making cheap toys and I applaud them for it

NVidia is worth more, makes better hardware and is far more respected by anyone who knows anything about tech

amd is second rate, cheap, unreliable trash
perfect for cheap ass $400 consoles

"next gen" consoles that won't even match a gaming laptop from 2 years ago let alone a dedicated desktop pc that will utterly destroy xbox1 and ps4

enjoy playing games with jaggies and sub-1080p resolutions all next gen too

If your talking about AMD for CPUs then your statement is pretty much correct. I mean they offer some pretty good deals that still are decent for gamers but their new $850 CPU performs less than a 4770k. So yea that's pretty much junk.

On the GPU side that statement is not at all true, at least the performance part. AMD is very much on the heels of Nvidia. A 7970 could easily smoke a 680 after the 12.11 cata drivers. The only reason AMD currently is behind is because of the 780 and that's simply because they haven't done a refresh like nvidia did.

And this is all coming from a guy that owns a intel i7 3930k and had a 680 but recently just upgraded to a 780...

I love intel and nvidia but you can't just smash AMD blindly because of it. Give them credit where credit is due. If Nvidia really had no competition they would have no reason to try and excel.

Actually Sony steeped out since Nvidia was offering a sub-par low end APU for an incredible amount of money.

AMD sucks? I own a GTX 7970 GHz edition and it wipes the floor with GTX 680's just for your information.

AMD also has better price to performance ratio, they release their high end cards at about 450-500$ while Nvidia introduced a 150$ price bump to their GTX 780 line making them 650$, they are only alienating PC users to upgrade.

“"Next gen" consoles that won't even match a gaming laptop from 2 years ago let alone a dedicated desktop pc that will utterly destroy xbox1 and ps4”

Gaming laptops from 2 years ago were equipped with Fermi (Nvidia) and Northern Island (AMD) architecture which are vastly inferior to the GraphicCoreNext2.0 (GCN2.0) architecture these Console APU’s are using.

PS4: 1840 GFLOPS + 7GB GDDR5 (RAM allocated for games)
Xbox One: 1230 GFLOPS + 5GB DDR3 (RAM allocated for games)

GTX 580m: 952 GFLOPS + 2GB GDDR5 (Laptop GPU from 2 ago)

HD 6990m: 1601 GFLOPS + 2GB GDDR5 (Laptop GPU from 2 ago)

AMD were known to have exaggerated theoretical GFLOP evaluations with their older hardware (The 1601 number may actually be less)

These laptop GPU’s have inferior GFLOP performance, RAM quantity and architectures

As a PC gamer myself, PC elitists shouldn’t bash consoles because of all the optimization and the on metal programming (No API) that will be done to improve the quality of the games for the upcoming years.

I saw your comment history and it also points that you are a hardcore PC elitist console basher.

"NVidia was offered the ps4 first, they declined"

Yeah they declined to make tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars

Cool story bro...

Its really weird when I see people saying there business isn't this or that...there BUSINESS is MAKING MONEY. They will do it in anyway they possibly can

Ragthorn  +   930d ago
I know how you love PC as well as myself, but Nvidia doesn't make the best tech (though right now there GPUs are the best!), AMD makes real good GPUs such as the 7970Ghz Edition which is stronger than the GTX 680. I'm sorry but don't give the PC community a bad image, by berating other people for their choice in playing, in this case consoles.

If console makers would pay for quality, Nvidia would be in the machines at the moment.
They were offered the job first, but were not willing to settle for the price that AMD apparently was.
Nvidia is doing just fine at the moment, actually.
Psychotica  +   930d ago
Yeah it has nothing to do with making money...
givemeshelter  +   930d ago

This GPU has NOTHING to do with gaming. It's a professional workstation GPU. If you actually knew ANYTHING about this you could have saved N4G.COM and its members your ill conceived rant displaying your lack of knowledge. You actually think this was made to show up the consoles and it's for gaming?
How sad you are...

Probably more than $1K. It's more than 5Tflop of processing power, 12GB of DDR5 RAM and 2880 cuda cores.
sourav93  +   930d ago
I think you mean GDDR5.

Easily more than $1000. We're probably looking at $1500+

Yes, sorry forgot the G.
JustPlay4  +   930d ago
I say it'll cost around $7,000+ (4,564 pounds) because you can get Nvidia Quadro 6000G now it cost $5,899 (3,846 pounds) that a lot as it is so this going to be lot more.

no, just uninformed, NVidia was offered the ps4 FIRST, they declined, amd is SECOND rate to NVidia in every possible way

but by all means,

keep playing them "super powerful consoles bro"

"did you hear??

some of the games may even be 1080p, yo

and have more than 25 frames per second"

welcome to 2002

"2002", so these GEN4 consoles are weaker than GEN2 hardware.

But don't worry, you kids keep making petitions.

If you knew a thing about gaming computers, you'd know that past a certain point you're paying 300+ for the slightest upgrade.

CoLD FiRE  +   929d ago
As a PC gamer who also enjoys consoles, I'd like to say you're the kind of PC elitist I try to avoid at all costs when playing online. One of the beauties of PC gaming is choice but because of zealots like you NVidia can easily bump their prices by a huge margin whenever they feel like it and know they'd still sell.

It's true AMD CPUs aren't that great but their GPUs are high quality and very competitive and of the reasons my last NVidia GPUs was a 7800GT.
givemeshelter  +   930d ago

This thing is surely powerful, but why is it posted here? This isn't really a tech site, more a gaming site, and this isn't really a gaming card. You could probably play games on it, but would most likely run into issues of some sorts. I've heard about stubborn friends who bought one of these Quadro cards a long time ago for bragging rights and then was trying to wonder why a lot of his games were acting weird, lol.

Too bad Im not into uppgrading yet. My laptop will suffice a little longer (Yeah I know) and the Ps4 is high up on my list of gadgets. Not building a complete rig until atleast end of next year. Not that Ill be getting a GPU of this caliber though. rather have two cheaper ones.

Glad to see Nvidia is pass the next gen exclusion. For a while they were like, that mad ex-girl that bad mouths you ever chance she gets. I found it poetic. Because nvidia in Spanish means envy, jealousy, feeling discontented, resentful, to desire the possessions luck or qualities of another. Again it's great to see them back on track.

People always think nvidia missed out on consoles but they ignore the fact that nvidia has way way way more going for it than consoles. they have their chips in luxury cars and phones and tablets and pcs and SOOOOOO MUCH More like the supercomputer in oakridge built with something like 18,000 nvida processors.

so yes they are in it for the money, and the big money is not only in consoles its in tons of other non gaming related markets. for some reason console gamers seem to think that consoles are the pinnacle of all electronics on the earth when they are really just entertainment toys

Quadro? That's not built for gaming but rendering media and CAD-stuff. No gamer in their right mind would buy this over a Titan, and seeing it headlining on a gamer-site is a bit odd.
