NVIDIA Quadro M620

The 28nm NVIDIA Quadro M620 is a mid-range DirectX 12 (FL 11_0) and OpenGL 4.5-compatible graphics card for mobile workstations. It is a 1st generation Maxwell-based GPU built on the GM107 architecture with 512 of the 640 shader cores activated. Therefore, the GPU is not similar to any current consumer card. The Geforce GTX 950M, for example, uses the full 640 shader cores. The older Quadro M1000M offers very similar specs (same amount of shader cores and also based on the same chip but more graphics memory), but was intended for the Skylake generation. The M620 is intended for the Kaby Lake generation.

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.


Due to the smaller amount of memory, the Quadro M620 should be slightly slower than the older Quadro M1000M. However, the exact clock speeds are not known up to now. In early benchmarks we have, the M1000M is about 9 % faster than the M620 in SPECviewperf 12.

Using CUDA (Compute Capability 5.0) or OpenCL 1.2, the cores of the Quadro M620 can be used for general calculations.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the Quadro M620 is rated for a 30 Watt TGP including the board and memory components (21.2 Watt TDP), which is 10 Watt lower than the M1000M (which offers more memory). Therefore, the card is suited for 15-inch notebooks and greater.
