NVIDIA Quadro M3000M

NVIDIA Quadro M3000M

The Nvidia Quadro M3000M is a high-end, DirectX 12 (FL_12_1) and OpenGL 4.5-compatible graphics card for mobile workstations. It is a Maxwell-based GPU built on the GM204 chip with 1024 of the 1536 shader cores activated and is manufactured in 28 nm at TSMC. Therefore, the GPU is similar to the consumer Nvidia GeForce GTX 965M. The Quadro M3000M is built for the Intel Skylake generation and is a successor to the Quadro K3100M (Kepler-based). The M3000M usually comes with 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM clocked at 1250 MHz (5000 MHz effective, 160 GB/s opposed to 102.4 GB/s of the K5100M). 

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

As the exact clock speed of the M3000M is still not known, we can only speculate on the performance of the card. However, it is the mid-range model of the mobile Quadro line in 2015 and based on the same chip as the GeForce GTX 965M. Therefore, it should be clearly faster than the old Quadro K3100M.

Using CUDA (Compute Capability 5.2) or OpenCL 1.2, the cores of the Quadro M3000M can be used for general calculations.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the Quadro M3000M is rated at the same TGP of 75 Watt as the K3100M (including the board and memory components). Therefore, the card is suited for large notebooks with 17-inch displays or greater and 25 Watt less than the M4000M and M5000M.
