NVIDIA Tesla T4: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Tesla T4

Summary

NVIDIA started Tesla T4 sales 13 September 2018. This is Turing architecture desktop card based on 12 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 16 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 10 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 320.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 168 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 70 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 42.23 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

Passmark

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.
