NVIDIA Quadro M5500 vs NVIDIA Quadro 3000M vs NVIDIA Quadro 5010M

NVIDIA Quadro M5500

► remove NVIDIA Quadro M5500

The Nvidia Quadro M5500 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 2048 shader cores activated and is manufactured in 28 nm at TSMC. Therefore, the GPU is similar to the consumer Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 (Notebook). Compared to the slower and less power hungry Quadro M5000M, the M5500 offers 512 more shaders which should result in 30-40% more performance according to Nvidia.

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.

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

The power consumption of the Quadro M5000M is rated at the same TGP of 150 Watt. Therefore, the card is suited for very large notebooks with 17-inch displays or greater.

The first laptop with the M5500 in it is the MSI WT72 Workstation.

NVIDIA Quadro 3000M

► remove

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 5010M

► remove NVIDIA Quadro 5010M

The NVIDIA Quadro 5010M is a professional workstation graphics card based on the Fermi architecture (GF100 chip). Therefore, the 5010M is closely related to the  consumer GeForce GTX 480M. The Quadro 5010M is the successor to the Quadro 5000M and also offers ECC RAM and double-precision floating point cores.

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 GeForce graphics cards with similar specifications.

The shader / CUDA cores can be accessed using DirectX 11 or OpenGL 4.1 for graphics rendering and DirectCompute, OpenCL, AXE, and CUDA for general purpose calculations. Due to the new Fermi architecture, the 5010M should offer higher levels of performance in general purpose calculations compared to its predecessors.

Furthermore, the Nvidia Quadro 5010M is compatible with the new stereoscopic solution by Nvidia called 3D Vision Pro.

To automatically switch between the integrated graphics card and the Quadro, the 5010M supports Nvidia Optimus. Note, however, that whether this feature is integrated or not depends on the notebook manufacturer.

Similar to the GeForce GTX 480M, the Quadro 5010M is specified at 100 Watt TDP. As a result, only very large laptops, such as the Clevo D901F, are able to house this high-end card.

At the time of arrival (Feb. 2011), the Quadro 5010M succeeds the older Quadrio FX 5000M as the fastest professional workstation graphic card for laptops.
