NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro FX 1500 sales 20 April 2006 at a recommended price of $699 . This is Curie architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 0.3 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.25 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 40.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 173 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 65 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.30 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
