NVIDIA officially launched the RTX A2000, a compact GPU designed for professionals, designed to fit into small form factor desktop PCs. Built upon the GPU brand’s current Ampere architecture, the card was built to handle a wide variety of professional tasks by accelerating AI and ray-tracing in workflows.
To that end, the RTX A2000 is powered by NVIDIA’s second-generation RT Cores, third-generation Tensor Cores, 6GB GDDR6 with ECC Memory, PCIe 4.0, and up to 8 TFLOPs of Single Precision Computing. Oh, and like its GeForce brethren, the card uses the PCIe Gen 4 interface that NVIDIA says doubles the throughput by 40% over PCIe Gen 3.
In terms of availability, the NVIDIA RTX A2000 will be available to all NVIDIA partners from October 2021 onwards, and will retail at US$450 (~RM1908). At the time of writing, NVIDIA did not specify when the GPU itself will be locally available at retail stores.
