The Quadro K6000 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Game performance for the Quadro K6000 where we look at the bigger games played in 2021. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 222 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

The Quadro K6000 graphics card is predicted to return a playable performance on Forza Horizon 5 at 1080p of 28 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Days Gone which we saw got weak frame rates of 22 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular FIFA 22, which is predicted to get 55 FPS under tests.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Quadro K6000 to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Forza Horizon 5 and predict it will be weak. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 56 FPS, Medium: 44 FPS, High: 30 FPS and Ultra: 21 FPS. We added Days Gone to our tests and saw it was weak with a 16 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched FIFA 22 leading us to predict 42 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p Quadro K6000 PC gaming is ok at playing most games but might need to have the graphics settings lowered to medium preset in some cases.
