Fourth-generation Tensor Cores

Hardware support for structural sparsity and optimized TF32 format provides out of-the-box performance gains for faster AI and data science model training. Accelerate AI-enhanced graphics capabilities with DLSS to upscale resolution with better performance in select applications.

Third-generation RT Cores

Enhanced throughput and concurrent ray-tracing and shading capabilities improve ray-tracing performance, accelerating renders for product design and architecture, engineering, and construction workflows. See lifelike designs in action with hardware-accelerated motion blur and stunning real-time animations.

CUDA Cores

Accelerated single-precision floating point (FP32) throughput and improved power efficiency significantly boost performance for workflows like 3D model development and computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation. Use enhanced 16-bit math capabilities (BF16) for mixed-precision workloads.

Transformer Engine

Transformer Engine dramatically accelerates AI performance and improves memory utilization for both training and inference. Harnessing the power of the Ada Lovelace fourth-generation Tensor Cores, Transformer Engine intelligently scans the layers of transformer architecture neural networks and automatically recasts between FP8 and FP16 precisions to deliver faster AI performance and accelerate training and inference.

Efficiency and security

L40S GPU is optimized for 24/7 enterprise data center operations and designed, built, tested, and supported by NVIDIA to ensure maximum performance, durability, and uptime. The L40S GPU meets the latest data center standards, are Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) Level 3 ready, and features secure boot with root of trust technology, providing an additional layer of security for data centers.
