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. 512 MB 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 single-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

0.49%

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.
