NVIDIA just released the RTX A2000 meant for workstation machines.
The main appeal of the NVIDIA RTX A2000 is its compact design and budget-friendly price. It’s so light that this two-slot card only weighs 294g. That’s about 1 and 1/2 of a smartphone. It’s also relatively short with dimensions of 16.7 x 6.8cm.
It uses a toned-down GA106 GPU with 3,328 CUDA cores, 104 Tensor cores, and 26 ray tracing cores. That’s close to what the gaming-centric RTX 3060 offers.
But since it’s not entirely meant for gaming and is poised for economical use, the RTX A2000 only has 70W TGP, versus the RTX 3060’s 170W. It also comes with 288GBps of bandwidth and 8 TFLOPS of power.
- AMD Radeon RX 6600XT announced to compete with RTX 3060
- NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti launched, cheaper and faster than RTX 2080 SUPER
Since it’s physically small, it only has a mini DisplayPort 1.4, but it does have up to PCIe 4.0 x 16 support. This GPU should be great for photo editing, 3D rendering, VR, and even minor gaming if you really want to.
While it’s said to be economical, the price of the NVIDIA RTX A2000 is yet to be announced.
