NVIDIA GRID K2 technical specs and benchmarks



NVIDIA started GRID K2 sales 11 May 2013 at a recommended price of 5,199 USD. This is a Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2x 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5 GHz are supplied, and together with 2x 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 2x 160.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. An additional 1 8-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 8.51 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on GRID K2's 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.
