How well can the Tesla K40c run games
Nvidia Tesla K40c
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Tesla K40c is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Lets look at the Tesla K40c game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 241.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Far Cry 6 will get 0 FPS with the Tesla K40c, Days Gone getting 23 FPS and Back 4 Blood predicted to get 32 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Tesla K40c performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Far Cry 6 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Days Gone to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 18 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p Tesla K40c PC gaming is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the Tesla K40c graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Tesla K40c in your PC? This Tesla K40c card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Tesla K40c? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 53% better and can run 634 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which is 27% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 312 games from the most demanding games today.

Tesla K40c Game Requirement Analysis

Tesla K40c is a high-end professional Graphics Card created for server purposes only.
It's designed to solve the most complex high performance computing problems.
It comes with a Kepler GK110 with a full count of 2880 Shader Processing Units but the drivers aren't certified for games. Therefore, even if Tesla K40 is powerful enough for even the most demanding games, it might not be compatible.
Its gaming performance is below comparable to GeForce GTX Titan.
