PNY Going Fanless With Two Nvidia Quadro RTX Pro Video Cards

Posted by at 3:39 pm on January 28, 2020

PNY has announced two new passively-cooled Nvidia Quadro RTX graphics cards, the Quadro RTX 8000 and RTX 6000. Packing the same 4,608 CUDA core GPU as the Titan RTX – now in a fanless, server-friendly package.

These professional cards are based around the TU102 GPU, the same one found in the RTX 2080 Ti. What makes the different from the GeForce version, aside from driver support, is the inclusion of GDDR6 memory above beyond the usual spec – 24GB on the RTX 6000 and 48GB on the RTX 8000.

These two 250W TDP cards require a little more than just a heatsink or two to keep them cool. In fact, they will likely operate under relatively chilly temperatures even against many actively-cooled designs, with the help of high-airflow server-grade fans.

Server fans effectively built to draw in colossal quantities of air through the front grill of a server and across all the internal components, before firing the hot air out the rear exhaust via the GPU I/O.

A GPU without any fans will also require less maintenance to ensure it stays frosty – of greater concern for data centre engineers running components all day and all night.

Pricing for these new passive cooled cards targeted for professional workstation use were not disclosed.  You should expect a price tag around $4,000 for the RTX 6000 and around $6,000 for the RTX 8000. A
