NVIDIA debuts Tesla K80 accelerator

NVIDIA has rolled out a new Tesla accelerator, now called Tesla K80. The device is based on two 28 nm GK210 GPUs, which is rather interesting because NVIDIA brings the older Kepler generation back to life.

Here’s what you get for your hard-earned money – each GK210 core includes 2496 CUDA cores, 208 texture mapping units (TMUs) and 48 ROPs. The Tesla K80 card has 24 GB of GDDR5 memory that operates over two 384-bit memory busses. The GPU runs at 873 MHz but its Turbo Boost speed is unknown. The memory on the other hand runs at 5000 MHz.

The new Tesla K80 provides 2.9 TFLOPs of double-precision power and 8.5 TFLOPS of single-precision power. The card needs 375 watts of power but despite this it has passive cooling, which means that other fans must provide airflow or it will surely overheat.

The price and availability of the new NVIDIA Tesla K80 are unknown as of now.
