NVIDIA Quadro K6000 Rendering Benchmarks


The K6000 rendering benchmarks have been temporarily removed. The card which BOXX received for testing was pre-release hardware whose performance may not be consistent with the final product.

In an effort to ensure that the data we provide you is as accurate as possible, BOXX Blogs has decided to temporarily remove the recent K6000 rendering benchmarks until we can run our benchmarks on a more finalized version of the card.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Blinn’s Law and the paradox of increasing performance

Painters have their brushes, sculptors have their chisels and VFX artists have their powerful workstations. All trades rely on specialized tools to get the job done, but what happens when rapidly advancing technology is applied to the modern creative process? As a 3D artist, what are the advantages of upgrading and utilizing the latest processing power? One of the obvious answers would be that your renders will finish in less time. While this is certainly a key advantage, one could argue that it is just the low hanging fruit when deciding whether or not to upgrade your hardware.
