NVIDIA Quadro 3000M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro 3000M

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro 3000M sales 22 February 2011 at a recommended price of $398.96. This is Fermi architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 625 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 80 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.86 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

3DMark 11 Performance GPU

3DMark 11 is an obsolete DirectX 11 benchmark by Futuremark. It used four tests based on two scenes, one being few submarines exploring the submerged wreck of a sunken ship, the other is an abandoned temple deep in the jungle. All the tests are heavy with volumetric lighting and tessellation, and despite being done in 1280x720 resolution, are relatively taxing. Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.

3DMark Vantage Performance

3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution. It taxes the graphics card with two scenes, one depicting a girl escaping some militarized base located within a sea cave, the other displaying a space fleet attack on a defenseless planet. It was discontinued in April 2017, and Time Spy benchmark is now recommended to be used instead.

7941

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.

Octane Render OctaneBench

This is a special benchmark measuring graphics card performance in OctaneRender, which is a realistic GPU rendering engine by OTOY Inc., available either as a standalone program, or as a plugin for 3DS Max, Cinema 4D and many other apps. It renders four different static scenes, then compares render times with a reference GPU which is currently GeForce GTX 980. This benchmark has nothing to do with gaming and is aimed at professional 3D graphics artists.
