Now shipping NVIDIA RTX A5000 and A4000

Escape are now shipping the much awaited RTX A4000 and A5000 cards  

 

With the ever growing shift towards the efficiencies offered by GPU and real time rendering, users are unlocking the potential of new technologies such as Chaos's Vantage, Unity Reflex and Unreal enabling them to take full advantage of the power on offer. The demand for memory has now become more essential than ever. The new Nvidia A4000 and A5000 cards address this, offering significantly increased memory and speed benefits. Both cards are based on Nvidia's ‘Ampere’ architecture and join the A6000 to supercharge your workflows.

These new cards offer architects, engineers and product designers – some of the key target users for these types of GPUs – a much more affordable entry into the significantly enhanced Nvidia RTX ‘Ampere’ family. 

Both cards are 2x faster than the previous generations, they combine 64 second-generation RT Cores, 256 third-generation Tensor Cores, 8,192 CUDA® cores with 24GB of graphics memory to accelerate rendering, AI, graphics, and compute tasks. 

Double the memory and power, using NVLink, by connecting two RTX A5000s for 48GB of combined GPU memory. NVLink unlocks and allows users the ability to work with larger models, renders and scenes, tackle memory-intensive tasks like natural language processing, and run higher-fidelity simulations to enhance your product development process. Additionally, support for NVIDIA virtual GPU software increases the versatility for enterprise deployments.

The A4000 and A5000 are ideal for large AEC/design workflows and also excellent for graphic workflows and AI tasks (which can run up 3x faster) in creative finishing software and creative content pipelines, plus they come at a competitive price point.

High-level view of benefits and features

 

Incredible Application Performance

Experience fast, interactive performance—powered by the latest NVIDIA Ampere architecture-based GPU—with ultra-fast,on-board graphics memory technology and optimized software drivers for professional applications.

The NVIDIA RTX A5000 includes 64 RT Coresto accelerate photorealistic ray-traced rendering up to 2X faster than the previous generation. Hardware accelerated Motion BVH (bounding volume hierarchy) improves motion blur rendering performance by up to 7X when compared to previous generation.

With 256 Tensor Cores to accelerate AI workflows, the RTX A5000 provides the power necessary for AI development and training workloads. Incredible inferencing performance, combined with enterprise-class stability and reliability, make RTX A5000-powered desktop workstations a suitable solution for professional AI training and inferencing deployments.

Scale application performance even more with NVIDIA NVLink technology that lets you combine two RTX A5000 cards to double the effective GPU memory and performance in a single workstation chassis to 48 GB.

Ensure hardware compatibility and stability through NVIDIA support of the latest OpenGL, DirectX, Vulkan, and CUDA standards, deep independent software vendor (ISV) developer engagements, and certification with over 100 professional software applications.

NGC™ support gives engineers, researchers, and data scientists access to NVIDIA-tuned, tested, certified, and maintained containers for the top deep learning frameworks, as well as third-party managed high-performance computing (HPC) containers, NVIDIA HPC visualization containers, and partner applications. 

 

Rich, Expansive Visual Workspace

Experience stunning imagery through movie-quality, anti-aliasing techniques, high-dynamic range (HDR) color support, higher refresh rates, and up to 8K screen resolution at 60 Hzfrom a single cable with the DisplayPort 1.4a standard using Display Stream Compression (DSC).

Enhance your desktop workspace experience with NVIDIA RTX Desktop Manager(formerly NVIDIA Quadro View) and NVIDIA Mosaic technology. Work across four displays on every NVIDIA RTX professionalGPU with intuitive placement of windows, multiple virtual desktops, and user profiles.

Use advanced multi-display technologies like Quadro Sync II, NVIDIA Mosaic, and Warp and Blend to perfectly synchronize displays, including external timing sources for virtual productions with massive LED walls. Scale resolution on a display surface composed of multiple high-resolution projectors or screens.

 

Proven Reliability

Experience higher-quality products driven by power-efficient hardware and components selected for optimum operational performance, durability, and longevity.

Enjoy maximum uptime thanks to exhaustive product testing with leading OEMs and system integrators that simulates the most demanding real-world conditions.

 

Easy Manageability

Remotely monitor and manage NVIDIA professional products in your enterprise by integrating the NVIDIA Enterprise Management Toolkit (NVWMI) in your IT asset management framework.

Scale up NVIDIA RTX Enterprise driver, formerly Quadro Optimal Driver for Enterprise (ODE), deployment to hundreds of workstations using NVWMI’s powerful driver installer.

Simplify software driver deployment through a regular cadence of long-life, stable driver releases based on a robust feature development and quality-assurance process.
