NVIDIA launches the successor to its RTX A2000 GPU for edge computers

NVIDIA has introduced the follow-up to its RTX A2000 GPU tailored for compact workstations and edge computers, offering up to 1.5x the performance of the previous-generation RTX A2000 12GB in professional workflows.

The new NVIDIA RTX 2000 Ada Generation GPU, powered by NVIDIA RTX technology, delivers realism in graphics with NVIDIA DLSS, according to the company.

Additional features in NVIDIA’s new release include: TensorRT-LLM, an open-source library that optimizes inference performance for the latest large language models on NVIDIA GPUs, and video quality improvement coupled with enhanced coding efficiency to video codecs through bit depth expansion techniques and new low-delay B frame.

It also has the ability to offload work from the CPU to the GPU with the execute indirect extension NVIDIA API.

“Today’s design and visualization workflows demand more advanced compute and horsepower,” says Rob Wolkers, owner and senior industrial design engineer at Rob Wolkers Design and Engineering.

“Equipped with next-generation architecture and a large frame buffer, the RTX 2000 Ada Generation GPU improves productivity in my everyday industrial design and engineering workflows, allowing me to work with large datasets in full fidelity and generate renders with more lighting and reflection scenarios 3x faster.”

NVIDIA notes that with 16GB of memory in the RTX 2000 Ada, its users can tap the latest technologies and tools to work faster and better with their data.

“The new RTX 2000 Ada Generation GPU boasts impressive features compared to previous generations, with a compact design that offers exceptional performance and versatility,” adds Mark Kauffman, assistant vice president and technical lead at WSP.

“Its 16GB of RAM is a game-changer, enabling smooth loading of asset-heavy content, and its ability to run applications like Autodesk 3ds Max, Adobe After Effects and Unreal Engine, as well as support path tracing, expands my creative possibilities.”

NVIDIA notes Rob Wolkers Design and Engineering, WSP, and Dassault Systèmes are among the first companies to use the new RTX 2000 Ada

“The new NVIDIA RTX 2000 Ada — with its higher-efficiency, next-generation architecture, low power consumption and large frame buffer — will benefit SOLIDWORKS users,” says Olivier Zegdoun, graphics applications research and development director for SOLIDWORKS at Dassault Systèmes.

“It delivers excellent performance for designers and engineers to accelerate the development of innovative product experiences with full-model fidelity, even with larger datasets.”

The NVIDIA RTX 2000 Ada is available now through global distribution partners such as Arrow Electronics, Ingram Micro, Leadtek, PNY, Ryoyo Electro and TD SYNNEX, with the company adding it will be available from Dell Technologies, HP and Lenovo starting in April this year.
