NVIDIA Tesla C2050: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Tesla C2050

Summary

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 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 248 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 238 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 14.52 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
