NVIDIA RTX A4000: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 4.0 x16
- Core clock speed
- Max video memory 16 GB
- Memory type GDDR6
- Memory clock speed 14 Gbps
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started RTX A4000 sales 12 April 2021. This is high-end Ampere architecture desktop card based on 8 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 16 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 GB/s are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 448.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 241 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 140 Watt.
It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of RTX A4000. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. 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.
- GeekBench 5 CUDA
- GeekBench 5 OpenCL
- GeekBench 5 Vulkan
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.
GeekBench 5 CUDA
Geekbench 5 is a widespread graphics card benchmark combined from 11 different test scenarios. All these scenarios rely on direct usage of GPU's processing power, no 3D rendering is involved. This variation uses CUDA API by NVIDIA.
GeekBench 5 OpenCL
Geekbench 5 is a widespread graphics card benchmark combined from 11 different test scenarios. All these scenarios rely on direct usage of GPU's processing power, no 3D rendering is involved. This variation uses OpenCL API by Khronos Group.
GeekBench 5 Vulkan
Geekbench 5 is a widespread graphics card benchmark combined from 11 different test scenarios. All these scenarios rely on direct usage of GPU's processing power, no 3D rendering is involved. This variation uses Vulkan API by AMD & Khronos Group.
Let's see how good RTX A4000 is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
