    NVIDIA T400


    Turing GPU Architecture

    Based on state-of-the-art 12nm FFN (FinFET NVIDIA) high-performance manufacturing process customized for NVIDIA to incorporate 384 CUDA cores, the NVIDIA T400 GPU is an efficient low-profile single slot professional solution for CAD, DCC, financial service industry (FSI) and visualization professionals in general looking to reach great performance in a compact form factor. The Turing GPU architecture enables the biggest leap in computer real-time graphics rendering since NVIDIA’s invention of programmable shaders in 2001.

    Advanced Shading Technologies

    The Turing GPU architecture features the following new advanced shader technologies.

    Mesh Shading: Compute-based geometry pipeline to speed geometry processing and culling on geometrically complex models and scenes. Mesh shading provides up to 2x performance improvement on geometry-bound workloads.

    Advanced Streaming Multiprocessor (SM) Architecture

    Combined shared memory and L1 cache improve performance significantly, while simplifying programming and reducing the tuning required to attain best application performance. Each SM contains 96 KB of L1 shared memory, which can be configured for various capabilities depending on compute or graphics workload. For compute cases, up to 64KB can be allocated to the L1 cache or shared memory, while graphics workload can allocate up to 48 KB for shared memory; 32 KB for L1 and 16KB for texture units. Combining the L1 data cache with the shared memory reduces latency and provide higher bandwidth.

    High Performance GDDR6 Memory

    Built with Turing’s vastly optimized GDDR6 memory subsystem for the industry’s fastest graphics the NVIDIA T400 features 2 GB of frame buffer capacity and 80 GB/s of peak bandwidth, more than double the throughput. NVIDIA T400 is the ideal platform for professionals working with 2D and 3D images and models and video creation & editing workflows

    Single Instruction, Multiple Thread (SIMT)

    New independent thread scheduling capability enables finer-grain synchronization and cooperation between parallel threads by sharing resources among small jobs.

    Mixed-Precision Computing

    With independent parallel integer and floating-point data paths, the Turing SM is more efficient on workloads with a mix of computation and addressing calculations.

    Graphics Preemption

    Pixel level preemption provides more granular control over tasks running on the GPU to maximize efficiency, providing a more fluid, interactive experience for the user.

    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.

    H.264 and HEVC Encode/Decode Engines

    Deliver faster than real-time performance for transcoding, video editing, and other encoding applications with two dedicated H.264 and HEVC encode engines and a dedicated decode engine that are independent of 3D/compute pipeline.


    Automatically maximize application performance without exceeding the power and thermal envelope of the card. Allows applications to stay within the boost clock state longer under higher temperature threshold before dropping to a secondary temperature setting base clock.


    Full-Scene Antialiasing (FSAA)

    Dramatically reduce visual aliasing artifacts or "jaggies" with up to 64x FSAA (128x with SLI) for unparalleled image quality and highly realistic scenes.

    32K Texture and Render Processing

    Texture from and render to 32K x 32K surfaces to support applications that demand the highest resolution and quality image processing.


    NVIDIA Mosaic Technology

    Transparently scale the desktop and applications across up to 4 GPUs and 16 displays from a single workstation while delivering full performance and image quality.

    DisplayPort 1.4

    Support up to four 5K monitors at 60Hz, or dual 8K displays per card. Quadro T400 supports 3x native displays, HDR color for 4K at 120Hz for 10/12b HEVC decode and up to 4K at 60Hz for 10b HEVC encode. Each mini-DisplayPort connector is capable of driving ultra-high resolutions of 4096 x 2160 at 120 Hz with 30-bit color.

    NVIDIA RTX Desktop Manager

    NVIDIA RTX Desktop Manager software allows you to manage single or multi-monitor workspaces with ease, giving you maximum flexibility and control over your display real estate and desktops.

    OpenGL Quad Buffered Stereo Support

    Provide a smooth and immersive 3D Stereo experience for professional applications.

    NVIDIA Enterprise Management Tools

    Maximize system uptime, seamlessly manage wide-scale deployments and remotely control graphics and display settings for efficient operations.


    NVIDIA CUDA Parallel Computing Platform

    Natively execute standard programming languages like C/C++ and Fortran, and APIs such as OpenCL, OpenACC and Direct Compute to accelerate techniques such as ray tracing, video and image processing, and computation fluid dynamics.

    Unified Memory

    Featuring concurrent execution of floating point and integer operations, adaptive shading technology, and a new unified memory architecture with twice the cache of its predecessor, Turing shaders enable awesome performance increases for today’s professional applications.
