Technical specs

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.

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.

Competitors of Radeon Pro 5300M from NVIDIA

We believe that the nearest equivalent to Radeon Pro 5300M from NVIDIA is Quadro M3000M, which is nearly equal in speed and higher by 1 position in our rating.

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)
