In this blog, we  evaluate the performance of the cost-effective NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 and the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 GPUs compared to the top tier accelerator V100S GPU by using various industry standard benchmarking tools. This includes testing against single vs double precision workloads. While the Quadro series has existed for a long time, RTX GPUs with NVIDIA Turing Architecture launched in late 2018. The specifications in Table 1 show that the RTX 8000 GPU is superior to the RTX 6000 in terms of higher memory configuration. However, the RTX 8000 and RTX 6000 GPUs have higher power needs compared to the V100S GPU. For workloads that require a higher memory capacity, the RTX 8000 is the better choice.
