NVIDIA Quadro 4000M vs NVIDIA Quadro M1200

NVIDIA Quadro 4000M

► remove 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 M1200

► remove NVIDIA Quadro M1200

The 28 nm Nvidia Quadro M1200 is a mid-range DirectX 12 (FL 11_0) and OpenGL 4.5-compatible graphics card for mobile workstations. It is a (first generation) Maxwell-based GPU built on the GM107 chip with 640 shader cores. Therefore, the GPU is similar to the consumer Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M. The Quadro M1200M is built for the Intel Skylake generation and is the successor to the Quadro M1000M (950M based).

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

The performance of the Quadro M1200 is on a level to the previous generation M2000M which is also based on the 960M. In games it is comparable to the GTX 960M although the driver support is not optimized for gaming.

Using CUDA (Compute Capability 5.0) or OpenCL 1.2, the cores of the Quadro M2000M can be used for general calculations.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the Quadro M1200 is rated for the same TGP of 45 Watt (32.5 Watt TDP) and therefore a bit lower than the M2000M with 55 Watt TGP.
