The P6000 has 3,840 cores and 24GB of GDDR5X memory. It supports 432GBps (gigabytes per second) of memory bandwidth.

Thanks for link to the new Nvidia Pascal based pro cards p5000 and p6000.
I waited till Siggraph to see if any new cards would be announced
and glad i waited as the p5000 looks to be the perfect card to up grade to.

While checking out the specification such as it is at this time the only bit of info that is missing and
important too me is which version of Open cl will this p5000 card have.
Nvidia have only ever had on all there cards Open cl 1.2 or 3.
As there Cuda aspect always took presidence over Open cl they never sort to upgrade Open cl to v.2.0 but
im hoping that there newer pro card will have Opencl 2.0.
I know its early days for full specification to officially come out
but has anyone come across info about the Open cl aspect yet.

I think it would be more efficient, and economical, to get two (or in some cases even three) Titan X cards instead. Much (as in really much) more power for the same cash, and it can be used for more than just CAD things. Beyond the double precision supremacy (which really isn't that much of a deal, since Titan X cards actually DO have this feature enabled) there are (IMO) very little redeeming factors for paying so much, for an otherwise inferior product. Unless you're into science, or working with weather reports.. I doubt you really have a need for one.

I agree. I would never pay $5000 for a video card that will be obsolete in a year. It's bad enough to pay $1000 for a video card that will be obsolete in a year.

yup you pay a lot for that last 1-2% performance.
Been there done that.....recently sold a $5000 Red Rocket card (for decoding Red footage) that a $250 GPU can now match

I like to stay 1 generation behind in most computer tech now...just for prices and not to chase the bleeding edge

Thanks everyone for info and persuading me to look again at my present preference for the new P5000.
I did have some concerns a while back about the Titan x which put me off the card.
Now that ive discovered there is also a brand new Pascal based Titan x i will check things out again and take it from there.

Yeah I would get either the Pascal Titan X, two 1080s, or wait for the 1080 Ti. Those are more bang for the buck for 3D use than the P5000 or P6000. I mean I'm sure they are nice cards but unless you have a university budget or corporation paying for them I would stick to the GTX cards for 3D and GPU rendering.

I'll stick with my single GTX 1080. It does the job. If I ever run into a wall, then I'd be thinking of upgrading. But that have yet to happen, and I have had some pretty massive scenes. So my point is, start small. That is really the best way to find out how much you need. The greatest benefit I have had upgrading are.. more cores, more memory, and bigger & faster ssd (m.2 NVMe)
