OVERVIEW
The NVIDIA GRID™ K1 is a dual-slot 10.5 inch PCI Express Gen3 graphics board with
four NVIDIA Kepler ™ graphics processing units (GPUs). The NVIDIA GRID K1 has 16
GB of DDR3 memory (4 GB per GPU), and a 130 W maximum power limit. The NVIDIA
GRID K1 graphics board uses a passive heat sink that requires system airflow to
properly operate the card within thermal limits. It is designed to accelerate graphics in
virtual desktop environments, making it the ideal graphics processor for Microsoft
RemoteFX and VMware vSGA.

THERMAL SPECIFICATIONS
The NVIDIA GRID K1 graphics board uses passive heat sinks that require system
airflow to properly operate the card within thermal limits. Table 3 provides thermal
information necessary to deliver reliable operation of the NVIDIA GRID K1 GPU. This
information is not intended to provide a specific thermal management solution.
For more detailed information regarding thermal specifications for the NVIDIA GRID
K1 graphics board, refer to the NVIDIA GRID K1 System Design Guide (DG-06428-001).

RELIABILITY
The meant time between failure (MTBF) ratings for the NVIDIA GRID K1 are tabulated
in Table 4. The calculation of these values uses the Bellcore’s Parts Count method in
controlled environments.
Table 4.
Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF)

Notes:
*Bellcore Code GB relates to non-mobile equipment used in ideal environment (lab, medical, and test
equipment).
**Bellcore Code GF relates to non-mobile equipment used in less than ideal environments (rack mount or
other instrumentation or equipment used in buildings without controlled temperatures).
