NVIDIA GRID A100A: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GRID A100A

Summary

NVIDIA started GRID A100A sales 14 May 2020. This is Ampere architecture desktop card based on 7 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 48 GB of HBM2e memory clocked at 2.4 GB/s are supplied, and together with 6144 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 1,866 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is an integrated video card. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 400 Watt.

We have no data on GRID A100A benchmark results.
