NVIDIA RTX A2000 Mobile: specs and benchmarks



NVIDIA started RTX A2000 Mobile sales 12 April 2021. This is a laptop graphics card based on an Ampere architecture and made with 8 nm manufacturing process. It is primarily aimed at gamers. 8 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 176.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 95 Watt (35 - 95 Watt TGP).

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 25.07% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

3DMark Vantage Performance

3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution. It taxes the graphics card with two scenes, one depicting a girl escaping some militarized base located within a sea cave, the other displaying a space fleet attack on a defenseless planet. It was discontinued in April 2017, and Time Spy benchmark is now recommended to be used instead.

3DMark 11 Performance GPU

3DMark 11 is an obsolete DirectX 11 benchmark by Futuremark. It used four tests based on two scenes, one being few submarines exploring the submerged wreck of a sunken ship, the other is an abandoned temple deep in the jungle. All the tests are heavy with volumetric lighting and tessellation, and despite being done in 1280x720 resolution, are relatively taxing. Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.

3DMark Fire Strike Graphics

Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.

3DMark Cloud Gate GPU

Cloud Gate is an outdated DirectX 11 feature level 10 benchmark that was used for home PCs and basic notebooks. It displays a few scenes of some weird space teleportation device launching spaceships into unknown, using fixed resolution of 1280x720. Just like Ice Storm benchmark, it has been discontinued in January 2020 and replaced by 3DMark Night Raid.
