NVIDIA Tesla S2050: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Tesla S2050

Summary

NVIDIA started Tesla S2050 sales 25 July 2011 at a recommended price of $11,999. This is Fermi architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4x 3 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3.09 GHz are supplied, and together with 4x 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 4x 148.4 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 900 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.98 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
