How well can the Quadro K6000 run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Quadro K6000 GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

What FPS performance can the Quadro K6000 get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 316 games in the list.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Quadro K6000 shows us that Borderlands 3 is getting a weak result of 22 FPS, and then we are seeing The Outer Worlds returning a weak 22 FPS while another game on our list is the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which is getting 16 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the Quadro K6000 by playing The Outer Worlds which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 43FPS, M: 34FPS, H: 23FPS, U: 16FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 12 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Borderlands 3 which gets weak results with a 16FPS on Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Quadro K6000 is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the Quadro K6000 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Quadro K6000 in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Quadro K6000? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 97% better and can run 900 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Quadro K6000 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 691 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 47% better performance.

Because we render high-resolution models and textures that eat memory up like crazy. That 12GB could easily be doubled and it would STILL not be enough for some…
