Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on GeForce G 102M and Tesla K20m 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.
PCIe 2.0 x16
Supplementary power connectors
1x 6-pin + 1x 8-pin
Parameters of memory installed: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
