The Tesla K80 was a professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in November 2014. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GK210 graphics processor, in its GK210-885-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12. The GK210 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 561 mm² and 7,100 million transistors. Tesla K80 combines two graphics processors to increase performance. It features 2496 shading units, 208 texture mapping units, and 48 ROPs, per GPU. NVIDIA has paired 24 GB GDDR5 memory with the Tesla K80, which are connected using a 384-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 12,288 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 562 MHz, which can be boosted up to 824 MHz, memory is running at 1253 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA Tesla K80 draws power from 1x 8-pin power connector, with power draw rated at 300 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. Tesla K80 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 267 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution.
