Summary

NVIDIA started GRID M6-8Q sales 30 August 2015. This is Maxwell 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 160.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 100 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

12.11%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
