NVIDIA GRID K2: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GRID K2

Summary

NVIDIA started GRID K2 sales 11 May 2013 at a recommended price of $5,199. This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 160.0 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 15.39 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
