NVIDIA Quadro M3000M vs AMD Radeon Pro 5300M
Comparison of graphics card architecture, market segment, value for money and other general parameters.
General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on Quadro M3000M and Radeon Pro 5300M compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Parameters of memory installed: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors have no dedicated VRAM and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.
Supported technological solutions. This information will prove useful if you need some particular technology for your purposes.
APIs supported, including particular versions of those APIs.
Non-gaming benchmark performance comparison. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.

Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to Radeon Pro 5300M:
Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro M3000M
0.1% better performance in benchmarks
Cheaper ($981 vs $2068)
Wider memory bus (256 vs 128 bit)
Lower power consumption (75W vs 85W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
Optimus (lowers energy usage by automatically switching between integrated and discrete NVIDIA GPU. Similar to AMD Enduro)
PhysX (hardware acceleration of physical simulation engine named PhysX)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)
Advantages of AMD Radeon Pro 5300M
Much newer (13 November 2019 vs 2 October 2015)
More pipelines (1280 vs 1)
Higher memory bandwidth (192 vs 160 GB/s)
Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 28 nm)
So, which one is the better GPU?
Technical City couldn't decide between NVIDIA Quadro M3000M and AMD Radeon Pro 5300M. The differences in performance seem too small.
