Budget NVIDIA T1000 graphics card for workstations released with up to 8GB GDDR6 memory, five 4K monitors support, and compact design
While the global chip shortages affect the production capacity and availability of most of its top-shelf graphics cards, NVIDIA has managed to release the affordable T1000 model of its professional card series via its brand partners. The 4GB DDR6 PNY NVIDIA T1000 price on Amazon in the U.S. is just below $400 at the moment, making it the most affordable out of its professional series of cards aimed at markets like CAD/CAM workstations or multi-monitor support. Unfortunately, the NVIDIA T1000 8GB DDR6 model hasn't been released stateside yet and is only available in Japan for now.
Besides the cheap for this day and age price, the NVIDIA T1000 specs make it one of the most compact and space-saving, too:
- NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture
- PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface
- 896 CUDA Cores
- 4 GB/8GB GDDR6 memory
- 2.50 TFLOPS
- 128-bit memory interface and 160 GB/s bandwidth
- 50W power consumption
- 4x DisplayPort 1.4 connectors
- Low-profile single slot design with one fansink
- Up to five 5K monitors or two 8K monitors output
- HDR support on [email protected] Hz 30-bit color displays
While the T1000 specs are nothing to write home about, its slim footprint with just one active fansink and very low power consumption make it a good budget solution for cramped configurations requiring support for multiple 4K or 8K monitors such as video walls. NVIDIA also lists other T1000 applications like light CAD/CAM tasks, 3D-rendering, or HDR video editing. Needless to say, the T1000 is not a gaming card, just as all the other graphics cards from its series aimed at professionals aren't, but it would perform on par with a GeForce GTX 1650, if need be.
