Featuring four display outputs – a first for its series, the A400 is well-suited for high-density display setups essential in various industries such as finance, command and control, retail, and transportation.

RTX A1000

The NVIDIA RTX A1000 GPU marks a significant advancement by bringing Tensor Cores and RT Cores to the RTX 1000 series for the first time. This unlocks accelerated AI and ray-tracing performance for creatives and professionals alike. With 72 Tensor Cores and 18 RT Cores, the A1000 delivers over 3x faster generative AI processing and up to 3x acceleration in graphics and rendering tasks compared to the previous generation. It excels in video processing as well, offering increased encode streams and faster decode performance.

Single-slot, Low Power Designs

Both the A400 and A1000 GPUs feature a sleek, single-slot design and consume just 50W, making them ideal for compact, energy-efficient workstations.

These new GPUs extend the reach of RTX technology, enabling users to enhance productivity and unlock creative possibilities. From industrial planning to content creation, from architectural design to medical imaging, professionals across various fields can leverage these powerful computing solutions to push the boundaries of their work.

The RTX A400 and A1000 GPUs come equipped with second-generation RT Cores for real-time ray tracing, third-generation Tensor Cores for accelerated AI processing, and Ampere architecture-based CUDA cores for significant speedups in graphics and compute workloads. Additionally, they offer 4GB and 8GB of GPU memory, efficient video processing engines, and support for high-resolution video editing and playback.


The NVIDIA RTX A1000 GPU is already available through global distribution partners such as PNY and Ryoyo Electric, while the RTX A400 GPU is expected to be available from channel partners starting in May, with anticipated availability from manufacturers in the summer.
