Flame 2024 - Z840 GPU Requirements

Hi all,

According to the above, the only recommended GPU to use with the Z840 would be the NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Unfortunately, we only have a M6000 in our machine. Has anyone tried the M6000 with their Flame 2024 build (preferably in a Z840?)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hello cond99!

Even if the M6000 is no more part of our qualified GFX cards, Flame 2024 (with DKU 18, which updates the Nvidia driver to 525.89.02) will start and you should be able to use the application. BUT be aware that since this is an unqualified configuration, any issues that you might find will not be investigated. YMMV.

The M6000 is still supported by the Nvidia driver we ship with (Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) Display Driver | 525.89.02 | Linux 64-bit | NVIDIA) but this might change in the future so if I were you, I would have a look at a used P6000, which can be found on ebay for around 750 U$.

Hi Slabrie,

Thank you for your prompt reply, this is exactly what I was looking for!

Due to the time I have available to ‘work’ on the machine, we will likely start off with trying the M6000. However, should we encounter any issues, we will then take a look at getting the P6000.
