NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M

NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M is a mobile workstation graphics card for high-end laptops. It is based on the Geforce 9800M GT / G92 core but features a higher clock rate and is produced in a 55nm fabrication process versus 65nm of the 9800M GT.

The Quadro FX series of cards are optimized for professional applications like CAD or DCC. OpenGL performance especially should be noticeably better compared to consumer GeForce cards.

The Quadro FX2800M is found in mobile workstations like the Dell M6500 and supports DirectX 10.0 and OpenGL 2.1. In the Dell laptops, the card is able to output up to two displays simultaneously (DisplayPort up to 2560x1600, DVI/HDMI up to 1920x1200). Dell claims a thermal power draw of 65 Watts while Nvidia rates the GPU at 75 Watt TDP.

Due to the relatively high power consumption of 65 to 75 Watts (TDP) and a 10 Watt idle mode, the Quadro FX 2800M is normally only foud in medium to large laptops with powerful cooling solutions.
