NVIDIA Quadro K500M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro K500M

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro K500M sales 1 June 2012. This is Kepler architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of DDR3 / GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 12.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-A (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.55 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT.
