NVIDIA launches multiple workstation GPUs: desktop RTX A5500 with RTX 3080 Ti specs and 6 new Laptop SKUs

NVIDIA RTX A5500 with RTX 3080 Ti specs

Alongside H100 AI accelerator, NVIDIA is today announcing new workstation GPUs for desktops and laptops.

The A5500 is a desktop workstation graphics card equipped with GA102 GPU and 10240 CUDA cores. This configuration matches the RTX 3080 Ti gaming GPU specs, but there is a very major change: the workstation model features GDDR6 memory with EEC while the gaming GPU supports GDDR6X. NVIDIA has not confirmed the exact specs, such as clock speeds or TDP for this SKU.

Moreover, NVIDIA is introducing as many as six new laptop workstation GPUs, including the RTX A5500 (Laptop) flagship model clearly using the GA103 GPU with 7424 cores and 16GB of GDDR6 memory. This further confirms that NVIDIA is doing an RTX 3080 Ti desktop and laptop relaunch, but for workstations.

Among new parts there is RTX A500, the slowest Ampere laptop GPU released thus far, featuring 2048 CUDA cores and just 4GB of memory. Other models such as A1000, A2000 and A3000 will feature 4GB, 8GB and 12GB respectively, while RTX A4500 will be using 16GB memory and cut-down GA104 GPU with 5888 CUDA cores.
