Summary

NVIDIA started A16 PCIe sales 12 April 2021. This is Ampere architecture desktop card based on 8 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 16 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14.5 GB/s are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 231.9 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. 8-pin EPS power connector is required, and power consumption is at 250 Watt.

We have no data on A16 PCIe benchmark results.
