NVIDIA Quadro 5010M: specs and benchmarks
- Interface MXM-B (3.0)
- Core clock speed 450
- Max video memory 4096 MB
- Memory type GDDR5 ECC
- Memory clock speed 1300
- Maximum resolution
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 ECC memory clocked at 1.3 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. Power consumption is at 100 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

- 3DMark 11 Performance GPU
- 3DMark Vantage Performance
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 Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.
3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution.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.
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.
Let's see how good Quadro 5010M is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
Here are the average frames per second in a large set of popular games across different resolutions:
