NVIDIA A2: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 4.0 x8
- Core clock speed
- Max video memory 16 GB
- Memory type GDDR6
- Memory clock speed 12.5 Gbps
- Maximum resolution
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.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on A2's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop graphics cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
|Interface||PCIe 4.0 x8|
|Supplementary power connectors||None|
Parameters of memory installed on A2: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors have no dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM instead.
|Maximum RAM amount||16 GB||of 128 (Radeon Instinct MI250X)|
|Memory bus width||128 Bit||of 8192 (Radeon Instinct MI250X)|
|Memory clock speed||12.5 GB/s||of 22400 (GeForce RTX 4080)|
|Memory bandwidth||200.1 GB/s||of 14400 (Radeon R7 M260)|
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on A2. 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|
APIs supported by A2, sometimes including their particular versions.
|DirectX||12 Ultimate (12_2)|
Non-gaming benchmark performance of A2. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
