NVIDIA has just announced new additions to the NVIDIA RTX lineup, successors to their last-gen Quadro RTX graphics based on Turing. The new NVIDIA RTX GPUs are based on Ampere and harness the massive advantage that the new architecture brings to the table for professionals to do what they do, better.

For desktop machines, there are the NVIDIA RTX A4000 and RTX A5000 GPUs, while laptops have a whole range, ranging from the NVIDIA RTX A2000 all the way up to the NVIDIA RTX A5000 laptop GPU. As a professional-oriented card, the NVIDIA RTX A5000 also supports NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software and also NVIDIA NVLink.

NVIDIA RTX A5000

It seems that NVIDIA tuned the NVIDIA RTX GPUs towards power efficiency rather than flat out performance like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series. As such, the flagship NVIDIA sips power with a 230W TGP.

Meanwhile the laptop GPUs also benefit from all the 3rd Gen Max-Q technologies introduced with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series Laptop GPUs like Dynamic Boost 2.0, WhisperMode 2.0, Resizable BAR and DLSS.

NVIDIA also announced the NVIDIA T1200 and NVIDIA T600 laptop GPUs based on the last-gen Turing architecture. For data centers there are the new NVIDIA A10 and A16 GPUs.

The new NVIDIA RTX desktop GPUs and data center GPUs will be available starting later this month, while the new laptop GPUs is slated to arrive in Q2 2021.

Pokdepinion: It is interesting how NVIDIA staggers out their SKUs based on the GA102 GPU, while the full GA104 GPU is used for everything from the GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU to the NVIDIA RTX A4000.
