Summary

NVIDIA started A2 sales 10 November 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 12.5 GB/s are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 200.1 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x8 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 60 Watt.

We have no data on A2 benchmark results.
