Nvidia’s Chinese website is still listing the RTX 6000 Ada workstation-grade graphic cards, despite export restrictions to China and other countries due to the latest U.S. trade rules. The RTX 6000 Ada is known for its exceptional power and is particularly suitable for artificial intelligence training with its compact blower cooler and 48 GB of memory. In contrast, Nvidia has removed the GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card from its Chinese website and is no longer selling it in China. This is because the GeForce RTX 4090 is subject to export restrictions, requiring Nvidia and its partners to obtain an export license from the U.S. Department of Commerce to ship the product to China. However, obtaining such a license is difficult, as applications are reviewed with a presumption of denial. Therefore, it seems that Nvidia has decided not to sell the GeForce RTX 4090 in China.
Despite this, Nvidia still offers the RTX 6000 Ada Generation graphics board on its Chinese website. This graphics card features the AD102 graphics processing unit with 18,176 CUDA cores enabled, giving it a total processing performance score of 5,828. It also comes with 48 GB of memory, making it an even better fit for AI training and inference compared to the consumer-oriented GeForce RTX 4090. Additionally, the RTX 6000 Ada Generation graphics card is equipped with a compact blower cooling system, making it suitable for data center environments and high-performance computing tasks.
It is unclear why Nvidia continues to list the RTX 6000 Ada Generation graphics card on its Chinese website. It is possible that the company plans to apply for an export license in order to continue selling this product in China, or it could be that Nvidia’s partners already have sufficient stock of these cards in China. Regardless, the RTX 6000 Ada Generation remains available for professionals in China, offering powerful performance and AI capabilities.
