Nvidia has expanded the RTX lineup of Ampere architecture-based graphics card models with the new RTX A2000. The new card features a smaller footprint, only a fraction of the size of its larger brothers (as seen in the image above). Specifically designed for smaller workstation rigs.
This new card is designed with professionals in mind who are looking to tap into the Ampere architecture for creative purposes (ie, CAD/3D rendering and design) and expands upon similarly-named models made available by the company already.
The RTX A2000 has a focus on AI & Ray Tracing, features 6GB GDDR6 memory, 3328 CUDA cores, 6001Mhz clock, and only 70W power usage (Additional specs are available below).
It will be rolling out in October with an MSRP of $450. It will be available by itself as well as within systems designed via your favorite PC manufacturers. Availability may be thin for some time due to the same chip shortages affecting many of the other popular models.
