NVIDIA Tesla C2050: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 2.0 x16
- Core clock speed 574 MHz
- Max video memory 3 GB
- Memory type GDDR5
- Memory clock speed 3000 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started Tesla C2050 sales 25 July 2011. This is Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 3 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 144.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 248 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 238 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on Tesla C2050. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference graphics cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model, while non-reference desktop models can (though not necessarily will) bear a different set of video ports.
|Display Connectors||1x DVI|

Non-gaming benchmark performance of Tesla C2050. 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.
- Octane Render OctaneBench
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.
Benchmark coverage: 26%
Octane Render OctaneBench
This is a special benchmark measuring graphics card performance in OctaneRender, which is a realistic GPU rendering engine by OTOY Inc., available either as a standalone program, or as a plugin for 3DS Max, Cinema 4D and many other apps. It renders four different static scenes, then compares render times with a reference GPU which is currently GeForce GTX 980. This benchmark has nothing to do with gaming and is aimed at professional 3D graphics artists.
Benchmark coverage: 4%
