AMAX workstations gain Nvidia RTX A6000 GPUs

The upgraded graphics card equips AI and visualization pros with a performance boost

AMAX PowerMax workstation

Server and workstation vendor AMAX has announced support for Nvidia's professional-grade RTX A6000 GPU in its workstations.

The company, which aims its AceleMax workstations at artificial intelligence (AI), rendering and visualization work, will include the new Nvidia GPU in its lineup. Its systems are designed for use with software tools like Google's TensorFlow AI system for compute-intensive training workloads that are a key part of building AI software, and are also well-suited for scientific visualization work.

Announced in early October, The RTX A6000 is Nvidia's latest pro-grade GPU and is the successor to the RTX 8000 and 6000 Quadro units. It features over 10,000 CUDA cores and 48 GB of video RAM that’s expandable to 96 GB when connected to two GPUs. The new card comes with four DisplayPort connectors and is rated at 300 watts.

In October, Nvidia said the RTX A6000 would be available in mid-December.

The cards are based on Nvidia's new Ampere architecture, which is its first GPU design to feature a 7nm process. They feature Nvidia's third-generation Tensor Cores dubbed the Tensor Float 32, which provide up to five times the throughput and up to 20 times the performance of the existing Floating Point 32 data type.

It also features Nvidia's third-generation NVLink technology, which is a high-speed data exchange bus allowing multiple cards to work in concert. The new architecture's second-generation RT cores offer a performance boost for ray tracing, which is important in 3D animation.

This card represents a significant upgrade for AMAX, which currently uses NVIDIA's Quadro and GeForce cards in its workstations. The new Nvidia card will be available in the AceleMax DL-E110A, DL-E120A, and DL-E140A workstations, which feature AMD Ryzen AM4, Threadripper, and EPYC processors respectively.

AMAX will also support the new card in its Xeon-based DL-E440 unit. These workstations already support the Quadro and GeForce card families. 

Customers will be able to fit a single A6000 in the DL-E110A, two in the DL0E120A, and four in the DL-E140A and DL-E440.
