NVIDIA Quadro 5010M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro 5010M


NVIDIA started Quadro 5010M sales 22 February 2011. This is Fermi architecture notebook card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 83.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 100 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 9.26 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
