NVIDIA A100 PCIe: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 4.0 x16
- Core clock speed 1410 MHz
- Max video memory 40 GB
- Memory type HBM2e
- Memory clock speed 2.4 Gbps
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started A100 PCIe sales 22 June 2020. This is an Ampere architecture desktop card based on 7 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 40 GB of HBM2e memory clocked at 2.4 GB/s are supplied, and together with 5120 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 1,555 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 250 Watt.
We have no data on A100 PCIe benchmark results.

Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on A100 PCIe. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference graphics cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model, while non-reference desktop models can (though not necessarily will) bear a different set of video ports.
|Display Connectors||No outputs|
