NVIDIA has just announced an insane new GPU. Designed for (wealthy) graphic professionals, the Kepler-based Quadro K6000 is, apparently, "the fastest and most capable GPU ever built".

With twice the capacity of the Quadro 6000 that it replaces, the specs on this thing are just crazy: it has 12GB of super-fast DDR5 graphics memory, 2,880 streaming multiprocessor cores, ultra-low latency video I/O, and the ability to drive four simultaneous displays at up to 4K resolution. So, you probably need this on your home PC, right?

Just as an example of the power of this thing, Nissan can apparently load almost-complete vehicle models using it. And that's incredibly impressive. But impressive will come at a cost. While there are no firm pricing details available at present, the K5000 costs $2,250— so brace yourself. It'll be available in the fall. [NVIDIA] ""

Well it has to compete against the $3400 FirePro W9000 which happens to eat the K5000 and still have room left for an entree and desert, and the $3200 FirePro S10000, and since you're only talking about around 35% faster performance, nVidia will have to be really conservative about its price figures, so look at $3500-$4000.
