NVIDIA Quadro P500

NVIDIA Quadro P500

The Nvidia Quadro P500 is an entry-level mobile workstation graphics card for laptops. It uses a Pascal chip with a 64 Bit memory bus and is most likely based on the consumer GeForce MX150 (384 shaders, 2 GB 64-Bit GDDR5) but with a reduced shader count of 256. The clock rates of the professsional versions are often a bit lower. The theoretical performance of the P500 is around 0.5 TFLOPS and therefore much lower than the P600 at 1.2 TFLOPS (similar to the consumer MX150).

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.
