NVIDIA Tesla K10: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Tesla K10

Summary

NVIDIA started Tesla K10 sales 1 May 2012 at a recommended price of $5,099. This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 160.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 272 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.

We have no data on Tesla K10 benchmark results.
