New Quadro M graphics cards just around the corner, as revealed by the latest driver.
NVIDIA Quadro M5000 & M4000
The new driver adds support for:
NVIDIA_DEV.13F0.1152.103C = “NVIDIA Quadro M5000 ”
NVIDIA_DEV.13F1.1153.103C = “NVIDIA Quadro M4000 “
These Quadro M cards are most likely being prepared for launch at SIGGRAPH 2015, which starts on August 9th. It makes sense, since last year NVIDIA announced Quadro Kx2 parts during the same event.
Both M5000 and M4000 are based on GM204GL graphics processor. NVIDIA is slowly replacing Kepler parts in Quadro lineup with Maxwell. So far, only the GM206 has not been confirmed to be used with new Quadro M series.
Configurations of these cards remain unknown, but something is telling me that they might arrive with 8GB of memory. I wonder if they are going to use the same cooler as with M6000?
NVIDIA Tesla M60
Quadro M models are not the only professional graphics cards being developed. Tesla M60 has also been spotted in the drivers, and yes it’s also based on GM204 GPU:
NVIDIA_DEV.13F2= “NVIDIA Tesla M60”
More information is expected in the next few weeks.
