NVIDIA Quadro 3000M

The NVIDIA Quadro 3000M is a professional workstation graphics card based on the Fermi architecture (probably GF104 like the GeForce GTX 470M). Compared to the 5010M, the 3000M does not support ECC memory and DP floating point calculations.

The Quadro series offers certified drivers that are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications like CAD, DCC, medicine, or visualisation areas. The OpenGL performance for example should be significantly better than similar specified GeForce graphics cards.

The shader / CUDA cores can be accessed using DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.1 for graphic rendering and DirectCompute, OpenCL, AXE, and CUDA for general purpose calculations. Due to the new Fermi core, the 3000M should offer a high performance in general purpose calculations.

Furthermore, the Nvidia Quadro 3000M is compatible with the new stereoscopic solution by Nvidia called: NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro.

To automatically switch between the processor graphics card and the Quadro, the 3000M supports Nvidia Optimus (if the laptop vendor chooses to integrate it).

As the GeForce GTX 470M, the Quadro 3000M is specified at 75 Watt TDP and therefore only suited for large laptops with 17 inch displays.
