NVIDIA GRID M6-8Q: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GRID M6-8Q

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 15.05 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
