NVIDIA Quadro 4000M vs NVIDIA Quadro 3000M vs NVIDIA Quadro M5000M

NVIDIA Quadro 4000M

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro 4000M

The NVIDIA Quadro 4000M is a professional workstation graphics card based on the Fermi architecture (or more specifically, probably the GF104). Unlike the 5010M, the 4000M does not support ECC memory and dual-precision (DP) floating point calculations.

The Quadro series offers certified drivers that are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications such as CAD or DCC. As a result, multiple scientific or business disciplines can make use of the workstation GPU. The OpenGL performance, for example, should be significantly better than consumer-oriented GeForce graphics cards of similar specifications.

The shader / CUDA cores can be accessed using DirectX 11 or OpenGL 4.1 for graphics rendering or DirectCompute, OpenCL, AXE, and CUDA for general purpose calculations. Due to the new Fermi core, the 4000M should offer higher performance in general purpose calculations compared to its predecessors.

Furthermore, the Nvidia Quadro 4000M is compatible with 3D Vision Pro, a new software solution by Nvidia for stereoscopic output.

The 4000M supports Nvidia Optimus in order to automatically switch between the integrated graphics card and the Quadro for power-saving purposes. Whether or not this feature is supported on a laptop, however, is dependent on the laptop manufacturer.

Similar to the GeForce GTX 480M, the Quadro 4000M is specified at 100 Watt TDP and is therefore only found in large laptops such as the Clevo D901F.

NVIDIA Quadro 3000M

► remove from comparison

The NVIDIA Quadro 3000M is a professional workstation graphics card based on the Fermi architecture (probably GF104 like the GeForce GTX 470M). Compared to the 5010M, the 3000M does not support ECC memory and DP floating point calculations.

The Quadro series offers certified drivers that are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications like CAD, DCC, medicine, or visualisation areas. The OpenGL performance for example should be significantly better than similar specified GeForce graphics cards.

The shader / CUDA cores can be accessed using DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.1 for graphic rendering and DirectCompute, OpenCL, AXE, and CUDA for general purpose calculations. Due to the new Fermi core, the 3000M should offer a high performance in general purpose calculations.

Furthermore, the Nvidia Quadro 3000M is compatible with the new stereoscopic solution by Nvidia called: NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro.

To automatically switch between the processor graphics card and the Quadro, the 3000M supports Nvidia Optimus (if the laptop vendor chooses to integrate it).

As the GeForce GTX 470M, the Quadro 3000M is specified at 75 Watt TDP and therefore only suited for large laptops with 17 inch displays.

NVIDIA Quadro M5000M

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro M5000M

The Nvidia Quadro M5000M 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 all 1536 shader cores activated and is manufactured in 28 nm at TSMC. Therefore, the GPU is similar to the consumer Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M. The Quadro M5000M is built for the Intel Skylake generation and is a successor to the Quadro K5100M (Kepler-based). The M5000M usually comes with 8 GB GDDR5 VRAM clocked at 1250 MHz (5000 MHz effective, 160 GB/s opposed to 115.2 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 M5000M is still not known, we can only speculate on the performance of the card. However, it is the top model of the mobile Quadro line in 2015 and based on the same chip as the GeForce GTX 980M. Therefore, it should be clearly faster than the old Quadro K5100M.

Using CUDA (Compute Capability 5.2) or OpenCL 1.2, the cores of the Quadro M5000M can be used for general calculations.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the Quadro M5000M is rated at the same TGP of 100 Watt as the K5100M (including the board and memory components). Therefore, the card is suited for large notebooks with 17-inch displays or greater.
