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.
