NVIDIA GRID K520: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GRID K520

Summary

NVIDIA started GRID K520 sales 23 July 2013 at a recommended price of $3,599. This is 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. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 10.88 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN V.
