PNY Carries NVIDIA A40 inventory in stock for immediate delivery, offers extensive pre-and post-sales support, and unrivaled customer service.
NVIDIA A40 delivers the data center-based solution designers, engineers, artists, and scientists need to meet today’s challenges. Built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the A40 combines the latest generation RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and CUDA Cores with 48GB of graphics memory for unprecedented graphics, rendering, compute, and AI performance. From powerful virtual workstations accessible from anywhere, to dedicated render nodes, the A40 is built to tackle the most demanding visual computing workloads from the data center.
NVIDIA Ampere Architecture CUDA® Cores
Double-speed processing for single-precision floating point (FP32) operations and improved power efficiency provide significant performance improvements for graphics and simulation workflows, such as complex 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE).
Second-Generation RT Cores
With up to 2X the throughput over the previous generation and the ability to concurrently run ray tracing with either shading or denoising capabilities, second-generation RT Cores deliver massive speedups for workloads like photorealistic rendering of movie content, architectural design evaluations, and virtual prototyping of product designs. This technology also speeds up the rendering of ray-traced motion blur for faster results with greater visual accuracy.
Third-Generation Tensor Cores
New Tensor Float 32 (TF32) precision provides up to 5X the training throughput over the previous generation to accelerate AI and data science model training without requiring any code changes. Hardware support for structural sparsity doubles the throughput for inferencing. Tensor Cores also bring AI to graphics with capabilities like DLSS, AI denoising, and enhanced editing for select applications.
48GB of GPU Memory
Ultra-fast GDDR6 memory, scalable up to 96GB with NVLink, gives data scientists, engineers, and creative professionals the large memory necessary to work with massive datasets and workloads like data science and simulation.
Third-Generation NVIDIA NVLink®
Connect two A40 GPUs together to scale from 48GB of GPU memory to 96GB. Increased GPU-to-GPU interconnect bandwidth provides a single scalable memory to accelerate graphics and compute workloads and tackle larger datasets. A new, more compact NVLink connector enables functionality in a wider range of servers.
Next-generation improvements with NVIDIA virtual GPU (vGPU) software allow for larger, more powerful virtual workstation instances for remote users, enabling high-end remote design, AI, and compute workloads.
PCI Express Gen 4
PCI Express Gen 4 doubles the bandwidth of PCIe Gen 3, improving data-transfer speeds from CPU memory for data-intensive tasks like AI, data science, and 3D design. Faster PCIe performance also accelerates GPU direct memory access (DMA) transfers, providing faster I/O communication of video data between the GPU and GPUDirect® for Video-enabled devices delivering a powerful solution for live broadcast. A40 is backwards compatible with PCI Express Gen 3 for deployment flexibility.
Data Center Efficiency and Security
Featuring a dual-slot, power efficient design, NVIDIA A40 is up to 2X as power efficient as the previous generation that is validated with a wide range of NVIDIA-Certified systems from worldwide OEMs. The NVIDIA A40 also provides secure and measured boot with hardware root of trust capability, ensuring that firmware has not been tampered with or corrupted.
