Nvidia RTX 5000 workstation GPU confirmed by driver leaks

A month ago, there were new updates on the workstation GPUs by Nvidia, including the latest RTX 5000 workstation GPU based on the Ada Lovelace architecture.

It was mentioned then that the RTX 5000 comes with 15360 FP32 and boasts 32 GB of GDDR6 memory. This was a lot, given that the consumer GPUs go up only to 24 GB.

The new RTX 5000 series workstation GPUs are virtually confirmed now with their mention in the driver update for the Acer Nitro 5 bearing the RTX 3070. In the changelog for the graphics drivers, it was mentioned that support was being added for the NVIDIA RTX 5000 Ada Generation, which will be called the NVIDIA_DEV.26B2 model.

This is the second GPU in the line of 3 workstation GPUs released by Nvidia thus far, the other two being RTX 4000 ADA SFF for small form factor PCs and RTX 6000 ADA. 

The RTX 4000 is considered mid-range and comes with 6144 CUDA and 192 Tensor Cores. It is set to have 20GB of GDDR6 memory and a 70W TGP. Its MSRP was set at USD 1250.

The beast of a GPU – the RTX 6000 ADA series – comes with 18176 CUDA Cores and 568 Tensor Cores. It comes with 48 GB of GDDR6 memory and a vast 300W TGP. Its MSRP is set at USD 6800.

The RTX 5000 is expected to sit between the RTX 6000 ADA and the RTX 4000 ADA SFF and offer extraordinary performance at a reasonable price. While the specifications are yet to be leaked and confirmed, it is expected to have AD102 GPU.

It will come with 15360 CUDA Cores and 480 Tensor Cores. This announcement comes ten days after AMD’s Navi 31-based Radeon Pro W7900 and W7800 GPUs were announced.

This means that the competition is heating up in the workstation GPU segment as well, with both AMD and Nvidia having 32 GB workstation offerings at a competitive price point.
