Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Advantages of NVIDIA Tesla S2050

We are unaware of any advantages of NVIDIA Tesla S2050 over AMD Radeon Pro V520.

Advantages of AMD Radeon Pro V520

Much newer (1 December 2020 vs 25 July 2011)

Wider memory bus (2048 vs 384 bit)

More pipelines (2304 vs 448)

Higher memory bandwidth (512 vs 148.4 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 40 nm)

Lower power consumption (225W vs 900W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

So, which one is the better GPU?
