NVIDIA RTX A2000: specs and benchmarks
NVIDIA started RTX A2000 sales 10 August 2021 at a recommended price of $449 . This is a desktop graphics card based on an Ampere architecture and made with 8 nm manufacturing process. It is primarily aimed at gamer market. 6 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 12 GB/s are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 288.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 167 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 70 Watt.
It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 35.49% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Synthetic benchmark performance of RTX A2000. The combined score is measured on a 0-100 point scale.
Combined synthetic benchmark score
This is our combined benchmark performance score. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
