NVIDIA GRID M10-8Q: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

NVIDIA started GRID M10-8Q sales 18 May 2016. This is a Maxwell architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 83.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.72% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
