NVIDIA Tesla M40: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 3.0 x16
- Core clock speed 948 MHz
- Max video memory 12 GB
- Memory type GDDR5
- Memory clock speed 6008 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started Tesla M40 sales 10 November 2015. This is Maxwell 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 12 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 288.4 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. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 250 Watt.
It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of Tesla M40. 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.
- GeekBench 5 CUDA
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: 25%
GeekBench 5 CUDA
Geekbench 5 is a widespread graphics card benchmark combined from 11 different test scenarios. All these scenarios rely on direct usage of GPU's processing power, no 3D rendering is involved. This variation uses CUDA API by NVIDIA.
Benchmark coverage: 5%
Let's see how good Tesla M40 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.
Overall Tesla M40 performance compared to nearest competitors among server video cards.
We believe that the nearest equivalent to Tesla M40 from AMD is Radeon Pro Vega 64, which is slower by 3% and lower by 6 positions in our rating.
