NVIDIA started Quadro FX 380 sales 30 March 2009 at a recommended price of $129. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 65 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 256 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.4 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 22.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 198 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 34 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at


percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
