NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro FX 5800 sales 11 November 2008 at a recommended price of $3,499 . This is Tesla 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.6 GHz are supplied, and together with 512 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 102.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 189 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.96 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
