02/05/2023 at 09:30 by Jusuf Hatic – The workstation GPU RTX 6000 Ada announced in December has been officially available for purchase for a few days. The first 3DMark benchmarks give an insight into the performance of the professional graphics card.
The RTX A6000 becomes the RTX 6000 Ada Generation: After the announcement of Nvidia’s latest workstation GPU in December, it has been available for purchase on the official website for almost two weeks – for the equivalent of a mere 6,200 euros. As one of the first users, the user “Healthy-Blood-54” was able to provide benchmarks on the Reddit platform for the professional graphics card, which should be considered separately from gaming GPUs. The popular tool 3DMark was used for testing.
Specifically, the RTX 6000 Ada generation was able to achieve 30,518 points in the course called TimeSpy Graphics – an actually high value, but still about 15 percent weaker than the current gaming flagship in the form of the Geforce RTX 4090. According to the Reddit user, the workstation GPU cracked the 36,000 point mark in earlier tests, but 3DMark has given fluctuating results even since a Windows update.

In itself, the weaker result compared to the RTX 4090 is not surprising. Although the RTX 6000 Ada generation can fall back on 18,176 shader cores – and thus 1,792 cores more than the RTX 4090 – as well as a full 48 GiB of video memory, the energy consumption is throttled due to the professional area of application and permanent use. According to Nvidia, this is 300 watts for the workstation GPU; is cooled by a blower cooler. According to the Reddit user, the latter allows the professional graphics card to keep the GPU at around 85 degrees Celsius at 70 percent utilization. In addition, the RTX 6000 Ada generation should not be louder than its direct predecessors, despite the higher performance.
