Summary

NVIDIA started RTX A4500 sales 23 November 2021. This is a high-end Ampere architecture desktop card based on 8 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 20 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16 GB/s are supplied, and together with 320 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 640.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 200 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at

52.53%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
