NVIDIA GRID M6-8Q: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 3.0 x16
- Core clock speed 722 MHz
- Max video memory 8 GB
- Memory type GDDR5
- Memory clock speed 5012 MHz
- Maximum resolution
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
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of GRID M6-8Q. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
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.
