NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro FX 5600 sales 5 March 2007 at a recommended price of $2,999 . This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1.5 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 76.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 254 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 171 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 8.73 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
