NVIDIA Quadro M1200

NVIDIA Quadro M1200

The 28 nm Nvidia Quadro M1200 is a mid-range DirectX 12 (FL 11_0) and OpenGL 4.5-compatible graphics card for mobile workstations. It is a (first generation) Maxwell-based GPU built on the GM107 chip with 640 shader cores. Therefore, the GPU is similar to the consumer Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M. The Quadro M1200M is built for the Intel Skylake generation and is the successor to the Quadro M1000M (950M based).

The Quadro series offers certified drivers that are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications like CAD or DCC. OpenGL performance, for example, should be significantly better compared to GeForce graphics cards of similar specifications.

Performance

The performance of the Quadro M1200 is on a level to the previous generation M2000M which is also based on the 960M. In games it is comparable to the GTX 960M although the driver support is not optimized for gaming.

Using CUDA (Compute Capability 5.0) or OpenCL 1.2, the cores of the Quadro M2000M can be used for general calculations.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the Quadro M1200 is rated for the same TGP of 45 Watt (32.5 Watt TDP) and therefore a bit lower than the M2000M with 55 Watt TGP.
