NVIDIA Tesla M60: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Tesla M60

Summary

NVIDIA started Tesla M60 sales 30 August 2015. This is Maxwell 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2x 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 2x 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 2x 160.4 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-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.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 20.04 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000.
