FEATURES Tesla K40 Tesla K80
Dynamic Parallelism
Enables GPU threads to automatically spawn new threads. By adapting to the data without going back to the GPU, this greatly simplifies parallel programming.
check check
Allows multiple CPU cores to simultaneously use the CUDA cores on a single or multiple Kepler-based GPUs. This dramatically increases GPU utilization, simplifies programming, and slashes CPU idle times.
check check
System Monitoring
Integrates the GPU subsystem with the host system’s monitoring and management capabilities, such as IPMI or OEM-proprietary tools. IT staff can now manage the GPU processors in the computing system using widely used cluster/grid management solutions.
check check
L1 and L2 Caches
Accelerates algorithms such as physics solvers, ray tracing, and sparse matrix multiplication where data addresses are not known beforehand
check check
Memory Error Protection
Meets a critical requirement for computing accuracy and reliability in data centers and supercomputing centers. Both external and internal memories are ECC protected in the Tesla K80 and K40.
check check
Asynchronous Transfer with Dual DMA Engines
Turbocharges system performance by transferring data over the PCIe bus while the computing cores are crunching other data
check check
GPU Boost
Enables the end-user to convert power headroom to higher clocks and achieve even greater acceleration for various HPC workloads
check check
Dynamically scales GPU clocks for maximum application performance and improved energy efficiency check  
Flexible Programming Environment with Broad Support of Programming Language and APIs
Offers the freedom to choose OpenACC, CUDA toolkits for C, C++, or Fortran to express application parallelism and take advantage of the innovative Kepler architecture
check check
2x Shared Memory and 2x Register File
Increases effective throughput and bandwidth with 2x shared memory and 2x register file compared to the K40
Zero-power Idle
Increases data center energy efficiency by powering down idle GPUs when running legacy nonaccelerated workloads
