NVIDIA RTX A5000: specs and benchmarks
NVIDIA started RTX A5000 sales 12 April 2021. This is high-end Ampere architecture desktop card based on 8 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 24 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16 GB/s are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 768.0 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 230 Watt.
It provides outstanding gaming and benchmark performance at 98.66 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of RTX A5000's architecture, market type and release date.
RTX A5000's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of RTX A5000's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on RTX A5000's 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).
Parameters of memory installed on RTX A5000: 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.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on RTX A5000. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
APIs supported by RTX A5000, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of RTX A5000. 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.
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.
Let's see how good RTX A5000 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.
This video card matches 100% minimum and 100% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
Overall RTX A5000 performance compared to nearest competitors among desktop video cards.
The nearest RTX A5000's AMD equivalent is Radeon RX 6900 XT, which is faster by 1% and higher by 1 position in our rating.
