NVIDIA Tesla K80: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Tesla K80


NVIDIA started Tesla K80 sales 17 November 2014. This is Kepler 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 12 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 240.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 300 Watt.

We have no data on Tesla K80 benchmark results.
