NVIDIA Quadro K4000: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro K4000


NVIDIA started Quadro K4000 sales 1 March 2013 at a recommended price of 1,269 USD. This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 3 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.62 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 134.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 241 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 80 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 16.17 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
