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

36.32%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
