Nvidia unveils A2 Tensor Core GPU for professional use

The entry-level GA107 graphics processor from the Ampere line is used in the GeForce RTX 3050 and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti mobile 3D cards, and now it has served as the basis for an entry-level 3D card for professional use (mainly accelerating artificial intelligence tasks) called A2 Tensor Core.

Interestingly, the A2 Tensor Core has 1,280 CUDA cores - exactly half the size of the full-featured GA107. Prior to that, Nvidia had GA107 variants with 2048, 2304, and 2560 CUDA cores. In general, the GA107 now has four versions.

Comparison of performance of A2 Tensor Core and predecessor

A2 Tensor Core received 16 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit bus. The GPU is clocked at 1440 MHz (base) and 1770 MHz (Boost) for 4.5 TFLOPS single precision performance. The TBP value is 60W, so the accelerator does not need additional power. By the way, the cooling system is completely passive, and in a conventional PC the device occupies the space of only one slot.
