Summary

NVIDIA started Tesla M40 24 GB sales 10 November 2015. This is Maxwell 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 24 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6 GB/s 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

26.86%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
