- GPU-Accelerated Parallel Processing
- 745 MHz GPU - Up to 875 GHz with Boost
- 2880 CUDA Cores
- 12GB GDDR5 RAM
The Tesla K40 GPU Accelerator with passive cooling from Nvidia is a GPU with no video outputs designed exclusively for providing acceleration to assist computational intensive tasks such as transcoding video, rendering 3D models, cryptography, and analysis of complex data sets. It features a 745 MHz core which can be boosted (overclocked) by the end user up to 875 MHz, and has 2880 Kepler generation CUDA cores (stream processors) which allow it to perform hundreds of computations simultaneously. To ensure data moves to and from the processors as efficiently as possible, the card features 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM over a 384-bit memory interface. A 750 MHz native memory clock speed gets effectively boosted to 3 GHz thanks to the fact GDDR5 type memory moves data at four words per cycle. Altogether this yields a memory bandwidth of 288 GB/s.
