On Monday, July 25, at SIGGRAPH 2016, Nvidia has announced its Pascal generation Quadro products, the P5000 and P6000.

The two Quadro models are intended to will fill out the high-end of the Quadro family. The new Nvidia GPUs are based on company's latest generation Pascal technology, as hinted at by their name. According to AnandTech, the Quadro P5000 and P6000 will offer significant features and performance upgrade over their Maxwell 2 based predecessors, similar to Nvidia's consumer counterparts.

According to Video Cardz, the Nvidia Quadro P5000 graphics card is powered by a Pascal GP104 GPU that features 16 GB of GDRX5X memory and 2560 CUDA cores. Its memory capacity is twice as much as GTX 1080.

The P5000 comes with one DVI-D output and four DisplayPort 1.4. The other specs of this GPU model were yet revealed by NVIDIA. However, tech experts notice that Nvidia's P5000 GPU is slightly refreshed and cooler compared to olders Quadro models and even the new Quadro P6000.

The Nvidia Quadro P6000 is powered by a Pascal GP102 GPU that comes with 24 GB GDDR5X memory and 3840 CUDA cores. The total memory bandwidth is 432GB/sec and the memory is running at a conservative speed of 9Gbps.

The Quadro P6000 is so far the first and only Nvidia Pascal graphics card that features GDDR5X memory to support ECC. For the DRAM only, NVIDIA is also implementing an optional soft-ECC method.

The P6000 graphics card ships with the Quadro 6000-series standard TDP of 250W. The P6000 is using the same blower design and basic metal shroud as the M6000 cards. This makes the P6000 suitable as replacement for older M6000 cards.

It's worth mentioning that the number of CUDA cores in the P6000 is even more than in Nvidia Titan X. According to Nvidia, the Quadro P6000 should be able to deliver five 5K video streams to separate monitors.

Both Quadro P5000 and P6000 models are expected to be available in October.
