Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on GRID A100B and GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.

Advantages of NVIDIA GRID A100B

Much newer (14 May 2020 vs 29 January 2019)

Wider memory bus (6144 vs 192 bit)

More pipelines (6912 vs 1920)

Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 12 nm)

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh

Higher memory bandwidth (264 vs 1 GB/s)

Lower power consumption (65W vs 400W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

So, which one is the better CPU?

Technical City couldn't decide between NVIDIA GRID A100B and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh. We've got no test results to judge.

Be aware that GRID A100B is a workstation card while GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh is a notebook one.
