Professional RTX A6000 tested in games against RTX 3090

igor’sLAB recently compared the Nvidia RTX A6000 with the RTX 3090 in a game test. The RTX A6000 costs no less than 6,000 euros and is used for professional applications such as scientific calculations, design tasks or intensive video editing. This 6,000 euro card would have fallen into the Quadro line until the previous generation, but this naming has been done away with.

The RTX 3090 is a GeForce card, which is therefore aimed at gaming and has a suggested retail price of 1,550 euros. The GPUs are roughly the same in core numbers, but the amount of vram for the A6000 with 48 gigabytes is double the 3090 with 24 GB. In theory, this should make gaming at high resolutions run smoother.

A first test took place with the zombie game World War Z. The game was chosen because of its powerful engine, which can still deliver playable fps in 8K. The ultra preset is selected as the setting. At 4K, the Geforce RTX 3090 Founders Edition has an edge here. At 5K, the two cards are almost the same, but the RTX A6000 delivers smoother images. With 8K the fps remain the same, but here too the picture is much smoother with the more expensive card.

Frame time analysis shows that the RTX 3090 has many more spikes with increasing resolution. This could mean some kind of memory limit, even with the hefty 24 gigabytes of GDDR6X. This may be one of the reasons why the 3090 stutters more from 5K resolution.

In addition, other tests have been done, including the game Chernobylite based on the Unreal Engine 4. Not all games were listed because some games had problems with the RTX A6000 drivers. Ghost Recon: Breakpoint ran at only 8 frames per second after the last patch, because the graphics card could not be recognized.
