The Power to Create, Simulate or Train with NVIDIA RTX A5500

Unlock the power of your desktop or multi-GPU compatible servers with the NVIDIA® RTX™ A5500 graphics card delivering the performance, reliability, and features required for complex multi-application workflows, or the most demanding immersive simulation or training environments. Built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture and featuring 24 GB of GPU memory, it’s everything architects, artists, designers, engineers, scientists, and simulation and training professionals require to move the boundaries of the possible forward.

NVIDIA Ampere Architecture and the NVIDIA RTX A5500

The NVIDIA RTX platform revolutionized professional visual computing forever. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture-based RTX A5500 builds on the power of RTX to significantly enhance the performance of rendering, graphics, AI, and compute workloads. Engineered to perfection and featuring cutting-edge innovations, NVIDIA RTX A5500 resets performance and productivity expectations for professional workloads. Key innovations implemented in the RTX A5500 include:

  1. NVIDIA Ampere Architecture CUDA Cores

    The NVIDIA Ampere architecture’s CUDA® Cores bring double-speed processing for single-precision floating point (FP32) operations and are up to 2x more power efficient than Turing GPUs to the RTX A5500. This provides significant performance gains for graphics workflows like 3D model development and compute workflows like desktop simulation for computer-aided engineering (CAE).

  2. Second Generation RT Cores

    With up to 2x the throughput over the previous generation and the ability to concurrently run ray tracing with either shading or denoising capabilities, second-generation RT Cores deliver massive speedups for NVIDIA RTX A5500 workloads like photorealistic rendering of movie content and virtual prototyping of product designs. This technology also speeds up the rendering of ray-traced motion blur for faster results with greater visual accuracy.

  3. Third Generation Tensor Cores

    New Tensor Float 32 (TF32) precision provides up to 5x the training throughput over the previous generation to accelerate AI and data science model training without requiring any code changes. NVIDIA RTX A5500 hardware support for structural sparsity doubles the throughput for inferencing. Tensor Cores also bring AI to graphics with capabilities like DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), AI denoising, and enhanced editing for AI-augmented applications.

  4. PCIe Gen 4

    NVIDIA RTX A5500 supports PCI Express Gen 4.0 (PCIe Gen 4.0), which provides 2x the bandwidth of PCIe Gen 3.0. This improves data transfer speeds from CPU memory for data-intensive tasks such as AI and data science. Faster PCIe performance also accelerates GPU direct memory access (DMA) transfers, enabling faster video data transfers from GPUDirect® for video-enabled devices and faster input/output (I/O) with GPUDirect Storage.

  5. Third Generation NVLink

    Third-generation NVIDIA® NVLink® technology enables users to connect two NVIDIA RTX A5500 GPUs together to share GPU performance and memory. With up to 112 gigabytes per second (GB/s) of bidirectional bandwidth and combined graphics memory of up to 48GB, professionals can tackle the largest rendering, AI, virtual reality, and visual computing workloads. The new NVLink connector also features a lower height design, which enables NVLink functionality in a wider range of chassis.

  6. 24GB of GPU Memory

    Tackle memory-intensive workloads, from virtual production to engineering simulation, with 24GB of GDDR6 memory with ECC (Error Correction Code). ECC can be turned on or off based on user and application needs.

  7. Virtualization Ready

    Repurpose your personal workstation into multiple high-performance virtual workstations with support for NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) software, allowing colleagues to benefit from the outstanding performance and GPU memory capacity the NVIDIA RTX A5500 provides.

  8. Power Efficiency

    The NVIDIA RTX A5500 implements a dual-slot, power- efficient design that’s 3x more power efficient than the previous generation and crafted to fit a wide range of workstations – including yours.

NVIDIA RTX A5500 for Training and Simulation

The constant increase in capabilities, performance, and complexities of aircraft, vehicles, and mission-critical systems places growing demands to operate and maintain complex simulation and training systems safely. Using powerful GPUs like the NVIDIA RTX A5500 and advanced technology in these systems is crucial to supplement in-person training and significantly shorten the learning cycle.

Next-generation trainers and simulators are moving to multi-GPU solutions to maximize performance, an approach fully supported by the NVIDIA RTX A5500. Shifting to multi-GPU configurations provides for increased fidelity, consolidation of redundant processing and minimizes the amount of hardware required to drive large display solutions.

More customers are implementing virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR]) mixed reality (MR), and extended reality (XR) technologies, particularly for maintenance simulations, or in training systems to enhance knowledge and skills at a reduced cost and risk. In addition, the proliferation of big data enables more effective uses of artificial intelligence (Al) to enhance learning and safety in training and ultimately improve human performance in real-world scenarios. The NVIDIA RTX A5500 is an ideal choice for any of these use case scenarios.


NVIDIA RTX A5500 Summary: Designed to Simulate Reality

The NVIDIA RTX A5500 is a high-performance workstation graphics card that gives you the performance and capabilities required for demanding multi-application workflows, or advanced simulation and training.
