NVIDIA RTX 5880 Ada Workstation GPU Spotted In RTX Enterprise 537.99 Driver

NVIDIA has added support for its upcoming RTX 5880 Ada GPU in its latest drivers which is designed as a high-end workstation solution.

NVIDIA’s RTX 6000 Ada Alternative, The RTX 5880 Ada, For China Spotted In Upcoming RTX Enterprise Drivers

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 6000 Ada GPUs were among the products that were banned from export to China following the latest US regulations and policies. While the alternative to the GeForce RTX 4090 has now been revealed to be the RTX 4090 D, it looks like NVIDIA is also cooking up the alternative to its flagship workstation GPU in the form of the RTX 5880 Ada.

While there is no mention of GPU specs or availability, it looks like the NVIDIA RTX 5880 Ada will be a cut-down version of the RTX 6000 Ada which features the AD102 GPU with 18,176 cores & 48 GB of GDDR6 memory. The RTX 5880 Ada will have to feature a cut-down configuration of the same AD102 GPU to meet the TPP requirements and fall within the 4800 TPP (Total Processing Performance) parameters.

As for the drivers, the NVIDIA RTX Enterprise 537.99 release adding support for the graphics card means that the specifications are already finalized for this product and it’s just a matter of time till we see it launch within the consumer segment.

The card is likely to be a China-exclusive variant & should be priced similarly to the RTX 6000 Ada which retails at around $6800 US. The card having a large 48 GB memory pool is a great thing for AI workloads but this extra pool is also good for content creation and rendering tasks which this Ada RTX series is essentially designed for.

The NVIDIA RTX 5880 Ada GPU might likely launch in the coming month of January as that’s when we are also going to see the launch of the GeForce RTX 4090 D gaming graphics card for the China markets.
