NVIDIA Quadro M6000 12GB Maxwell Workstation Graphics Tested Showing Solid Gains 66

NVIDIA recently took time to bring that same Maxwell goodness over the workstation market as well and the result is the new Quadro M6000, NVIDIA's new highest-end workstation platform. Like the Titan X, the M6000 is based on the full-fat version of the Maxwell GPU, the G200. Also, like the GeForce GTX Titan X, the Quadro M6000 has 12GB of GDDR5, 3072 GPU cores, 192 texture units (TMUs), and 96 render outputs (ROPs). NVIDIA has said that the M6000 will beat out their previous gen Quadro K6000 in a significant way in pro workstation applications as well as GPGPU or rendering and encoding applications that can be GPU-accelerated. One thing that's changed with the launch of the M6000 is that AMD no longer trades shots with NVIDIA for the top pro graphics performance spot. Last time around, there were some benchmarks that still favored team red. Now, the NVIDIA Quadro M6000 puts up pretty much a clean sweep.

I had this idea of taking pieces of bog roll and compressing them like a very lot and enclosing them in a capsule. You'd swallow them at the end of a meal and when you pooped them out they'd burst and expand automatically hygieneise your botty-wotty. I proposed this to some venture capitalists and they turned me down in favour of some website where you post inane details about your life in a vain attempt to appear like you don't have an utterly pointless existence. Who's laughing now, you bastards?

Wrong on two counts. One, "you fucking American idiot" doesn't have a finite verb so it's not a complete sentence. Had he written "you're a..." you might have a point.

Two, it's correct to use a comma to separate the addressee.

Many people here omit it, sometimes changing the meaning somewhat.
