NVIDIA Quadro P4200
The Nvidia Quadro P4200 is a mobile high-end workstation graphics card for notebooks. It is based on the GP104 chip (like the consumer GeForce GTX 1070 or 1080 for laptops) and features 2304 shader cores. The clock rate is not disclosed but the theoretical SP performance is rated at 8.9 TFLOPs (for the fast Max-P version) and therefore faster than the old Quadro P5000 but below the Quadro P5200 (see table below). The P4200 is equipped with 8 GB GDDR5 which leads to 224 GB7s peak bandwidth due to the 256 Bit memory bus. There are two variants available, a Max-P performance version and a Max-Q version tuned for efficiency (with lower clock speeds).
The Quadro GPUs offer certified drivers, which are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications (CAD, DCC, medical, prospection, and visualizing applications). The performance in these areas is therefore much better compared to corresponding consumer GPUs.
The power consumption of the Quadro P4200 is rated at 115 Watt TGP (max power consumption incl. memory) and therefore 15 Watt more than the Quadro P5000. The card is therefore best suited for large 17-inch notebooks.
