NVIDIA Quadro 400: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro 400

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro 400 sales 5 April 2011 at a recommended price of $169 . This is Tesla 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 0.5 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.54 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 12.32 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 163 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 32 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 3.44 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
