490-BCKM Dell NVIDIA Tesla K80 Graphics Card Review
Dual-GPU Design and Dynamic GPU Boost
This 490-BCKM Dell NVIDIA Tesla K80 Graphics Card built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GK210 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 12. The GK210 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 561 mm² and 7,100 million transistors. Tesla K80 GPU combines two graphics processors to increase performance and also features 2496 shading units, 208 texture mapping units, and 48 ROPs, per GPU.
NVIDIA has paired 24 GB GDDR5 memory with the Tesla K80, which are connected using a 384-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 12,288 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 562 MHz, which can be boosted up to 824 MHz, memory is running at 1253 MHz (5 Gbps effective).
Being a MXM module card, the NVIDIA Tesla M6 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 100 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. Tesla M6 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. NVIDIA has paired 8 GB GDDR5 memory with the Tesla M6, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 930 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1180 MHz, memory is running at 1253 MHz (5 Gbps effective).
