NVIDIA Quadro M5500 vs NVIDIA Quadro M600M

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 M600M

► remove NVIDIA Quadro M600M

The 28nm NVIDIA Quadro M600M is an entry-level DirectX 12 (FL 11_0) and OpenGL 4.5-compatible graphics card for mobile workstations. It is a 1st generation Maxwell GPU that is most likely built on the GM107 architecture with 384 of the 640 shader cores activated. Compared to the older Quadro K620M and consumer GeForce 940M, the GPU offers a 128-Bit memory bus that separates it from the GM108-based K620M. The M600M typically comes with 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM clocked at 1250 MHz (5000 MHz effective at 80 GB/s instead of 16 GB/s on the K620M). 

In the Lenovo Thinkpad P70 the M600M is clocked at 837 - 876 MHz (Boost) for the shaders, and 1253 MHz (5012 MHz effektive) for the 2 GB GDDR5 from Samsung (thanks to our reader John for the GPU-Z screenshot).

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 Quadro M600M is about 20% faster than the previous Quadro K620M thanks to the wider 128-bit memory interface and pretty much right between the siblings Quadro M500M & Quadro M1000M. The consumer GPU GeForce 940MX is beaten by ~10-15%, while the GeForce GTX 950M is another 20% faster.

Using CUDA (Compute Capability 5.0) or OpenCL 1.2, the cores of the Quadro M600M can be used for general calculations.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the Quadro M600M is rated at the same 30 Watt TGP as the K620M including the board and memory components. Therefore, the card is also suited for thin and light notebooks.
