NVIDIA Makes RTX Technology Accessible to More Professionals

With its compact, power-efficient design, the new RTX A2000 GPU fits more desktops while accelerating AI and ray tracing for design workflows.

With its powerful real-time ray tracing and AI acceleration capabilities, NVIDIA RTX technology has transformed design and visualization workflows for the most complex tasks, like designing airplanes and automobiles, visual effects in movies and large-scale architectural design.

The new NVIDIA RTX A2000 — our most compact, power-efficient GPU for a wide range of standard and small-form-factor workstations — makes it easier to access RTX from anywhere.

The RTX A2000 is designed for everyday workflows, so professionals can develop photorealistic renderings, build physically accurate simulations and use AI-accelerated tools. With it, artists can create beautiful 3D worlds, architects can design and virtually explore the next generation of smart buildings and homes, and engineers can create energy-efficient and autonomous vehicles that will drive us into the future.

The GPU has 6GB of memory capacity with error correction code (ECC) to maintain data integrity for uncompromised computing accuracy and reliability, which especially benefits the healthcare and financial services fields.

With remote work part of the new normal, simultaneous collaboration with colleagues on projects across the globe is critical. NVIDIA RTX technology powers Omniverse, our collaboration and simulation platform that enables teams to iterate together on a single 3D design in real time while working across different software applications. The A2000 will serve as a portal into this world for millions of designers.

Next-Generation RTX Technology

The NVIDIA RTX A2000 is the most powerful low-profile, dual-slot GPU for professionals. It combines the latest-generation RT Cores, Tensor Cores and CUDA cores with 6GB of ECC graphics memory in a compact form factor to fit a wide range of systems.

The NVIDIA RTX A2000 features the latest technologies in the NVIDIA Ampere architecture:

  • Second-Generation RT Cores: Real-time ray tracing for all professional workflows. Up to 5x the rendering performance from the previous generation with RTX on.
  • Third-Generation Tensor Cores: Available in the GPU architecture to enable AI-augmented tools and applications.
  • CUDA Cores: Up to 2x the FP32 throughput of the previous generation for significant increases in graphics and compute workloads.
  • Up to 6GB of GPU Memory: Supports ECC memory, the first time that NVIDIA has enabled ECC memory in its 2000 series GPUs, for error-free computing.
  • PCIe Gen 4: Double the throughput with more than 40 percent bandwidth improvement from the previous generation for accelerating data paths in and out of the GPU.

Availability 

The NVIDIA RTX A2000 desktop GPU will be available in workstations from manufacturers including ASUS, BOXX Technologies, Dell Technologies, HP and Lenovo as well as NVIDIA’s global distribution partners starting in October.
