Modern data centers are evolving rapidly. Advanced technologies such as real-time ray tracing, AI, compute, simulation, and VR are common across industries. The need to work remotely has accelerated faster than anyone could have anticipated, with workloads that span the entire enterprise.
NVIDIA® A40 delivers the data center-based solution designers, engineers, artists, and scientists need to meet today’s challenges. Built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the A40 combines the latest generation RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and CUDA® Cores with 48GB of graphics memory for unprecedented graphics, rendering, compute, and AI performance. From powerful virtual workstations accessible from anywhere, to dedicated render nodes, the A40 is built to tackle the most demanding visual computing workloads from the data center.
Connect two NVIDIA A40 cards with NVLink to double the effective memory footprint and scale application performance by enabling GPU-to-GPU data transfers at rates up to 112.5 GB/s (total bandwidth).
Supports up to three 5K monitors @ 60Hz, or dual 8K displays @ 60Hz per card. The NVIDIA A40 supports HDR color for 4K @ 60Hz for 10/12b HEVC decode and up to 4K @ 60Hz for 10b HEVC encode. Each DisplayPort connector can drive ultra-high resolutions of 4096x2160 @ 120 Hz with 30-bit color. * A40 is configured for virtualization by default with physical display connectors disabled. The display outputs can be enabled via management software tools.
Transparently scale the desktop and applications across up to 12 displays from 4 GPUs while delivering full performance and image quality.
Synchronize the display and image output of up to 32 displays[iii ] from 8 GPUs (connected through two Sync II boards) in a single system, reducing the number of machines needed to create an advanced video visualization environment.
Each frame lock connector is designed with a self-locking retention mechanism to secure its connection with the frame lock cable to provide robust connectivity and maximum productivity.
Support for NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software enables A40 to be virtualized to accelerate high-end design, AI, and compute workloads. The NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation (Quadro vDWS) license provides access to the world’s most powerful virtual workstations to enable flexible, work-from-anywhere solutions, while the NVIDIA Virtual Compute Server (vCS) license accelerates virtualized compute workloads such as high performance computing, AI and data science.
Deep learning frameworks such as Caffe2, MXNet, CNTK, TensorFlow, and others deliver dramatically faster training times and higher multi-node training performance. GPU accelerated libraries such as cuDNN, cuBLAS, and TensorRT delivers higher performance for both deep learning inference and High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications.
Natively execute standard programming languages like C/C++ and Fortran, and APIs such as OpenCL, OpenACC and Direct Compute to accelerates techniques such as ray tracing, video and image processing, and computation fluid dynamics.
A single, seamless 49-bit virtual address space allows for the transparent migration of data between the full allocation of CPU and GPU memory.
Supports a family of technologies to speed communication between the GPU and devices like NICs or Video I/O boards by reducing CPU overhead and minimizing copies.
