    Nvidia Tesla M40 - 115$ with free shipping

    Nvidia Tesla M40 - 115$ with free shipping

    singles are 32 bit. halves are 16 bit, doubles are 64 bit you dont need these cards for deep learning. just get a consumer RTX card. even a RTX 2060 demolishes these. and if you want to spend more, a 3060Ti is all you need. Demolishing $8000 cards.
