  • Features

    NVIDIA RTX A5500 + HW Sync


    NVIDIA Ampere Architecture

    RTX A5500 is a powerful workstation NVIDIA GPU offering high-performance real-time ray tracing, AI-accelerated compute, and professional graphics rendering. Building upon the major SM enhancements from the Turing GPU, the NVIDIA Ampere architecture enhances ray tracing operations, tensor matrix operations, and concurrent executions of FP32 and INT32 operations.

    CUDA Cores

    The NVIDIA Ampere architecture's CUDA cores bring up to 2x the single-precision floating point (FP32) throughput compared to the previous generation, providing significant performance improvements for graphics workflows such as 3D model development and compute for workloads such as desktop simulation for computer-aided engineering (CAE). The RTX A5500 enables two FP32 primary data paths, doubling the peak FP32 operations.

    Second-Generation RT Cores

    Third-generation RT Cores provide up to 2X the throughput of the previous generation and the ability to run ray tracing with either shading or denoising capabilities concurrently. This accelerates renders for M&E content creation, AECO design evaluations, and manufacturing virtual prototyping. Third-generation RT Cores deliver up to 2X the ray-tracing performance over the previous generation, delivering groundbreaking performance for photorealistic rendering. Enhanced RT Cores combined with new SER technology dynamically reorder inefficient workloads, dramatically improving shader performance to accelerate end-to-end ray-traced image rendering performance.

    Third-Generation Tensor Cores

    Purpose-built for deep learning matrix arithmetic at the heart of neural network training and inferencing functions, the RTX A5500 includes enhanced Tensor Cores that accelerate more datatypes and includes a new Fine-Grained Structured Sparsity feature that delivers up to 2x throughput for tensor matrix operations compared to the previous generation. New Tensor Cores will accelerate two new TF32 and BFloat16 precision modes. Independent floating-point and integer data paths allow more efficient execution of workloads using a mix of computation and addressing calculations.

    PCIe Gen 4

    The RTX A5500 supports PCI Express Gen 4, which provides double the bandwidth of PCIe Gen 3, improving data-transfer speeds from CPU memory for data-intensive tasks like AI and data science.

    Higher Speed GDDR6 Memory

    Built with 48GB GDDR6 memory, the RTX A5500 delivers 15% greater throughput for ray tracing, rendering, and AI workloads than the previous generation. The RTX A5500 provides a 24GB memory footprint to address large datasets and models in latency-sensitive professional applications.

    Error Correcting Code (ECC) on Graphics Memory

    Meet strict data integrity requirements for mission-critical applications with uncompromised computing accuracy and reliability for workstations.

    Fifth-Generation NVDEC Engine

    NVDEC is well suited for transcoding and video playback applications for real-time decoding. The following video codecs are supported for hardware-accelerated decoding: MPEG-2, VC-1, H.264 (AVCHD), H.265 (HEVC), VP8, VP9, and AV1.

    Seventh-Generation NVENC Engine

    NVENC can take on the most demanding 4K or 8K video encoding tasks to free up the graphics engine and the CPU for other operations. The RTX A5500 provides better encoding quality than software-based x264 encoders.

    Graphics Preemption

    Pixel-level preemption provides more granular control to better support time-sensitive tasks such as VR motion tracking.

    Compute Preemption

    Preemption at the instruction level provides finer-grain control over compute tasks to prevent long-running applications from either monopolizing system resources or timing out.


    Accelerating GPU-based lossless decompression performance by up to 100x and 20x lower CPU utilization compared to traditional storage APIs using Microsoft's new DirectStorage for Windows API.
