NVIDIA Quadro K600: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro K600

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro K600 sales 1 March 2013 at a recommended price of $199 . This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 1 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.78 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.51 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 160 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 41 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 5.76 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
