NVIDIA Quadro FX 2500M


NVIDIA started Quadro FX 2500M sales 29 September 2005 at a recommended price of 99.99 USD. This is Curie architecture notebook card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 0.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 38.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-III interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 45 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.33 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
