TESLA K80 is finally here.
NVIDIA has finally unveiled its fastest professional graphics card. Tesla K80 features two Kepler GK210-DUO GPUs with a total of 4992 CUDA cores, 416 TMUs and 96 ROPs. Two GPUs are accompanied by 24GB GDDR5 memory across dual 384-bit interface.
NVIDIA TESLA K80 is twice as fast as TESLA K40, with 2.9 TFLOPS double-precision computing power. The single-precision horsepower is reported somewhere at 8 TFLOPs, which should give you an idea of how fast is it compared to normal gaming graphics cards.
Thanks to dual-384-bit interface, this card offers 480 GB/s of memory bandwidth. That’s slower than TITAN Z, but TITAN only has 12 GB GDDR5 memory, whereas TESLA K80 comes with 24 GB.
TESLA K80 also supports GPU Boost, similar to K40. Speaking of older Teslas, K80 went through small design update. We have similar magnesium alloy known from GEFORCE GTX TITAN coolers. It reminds me of GRID appliance (as shown below)
According to WCCFTech, NVIDIA TESLA K80 will cost around $7000.
