NVIDIA Quadro M4000: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro M4000

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro M4000 sales 29 June 2015 at a recommended price of $791. This is Maxwell 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 8 GB of 256-bit memory clocked at 6.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of .

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 241 mm. 1 x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 120 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 25.13 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

Overall score

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.

25.13

Unigine Heaven 4.0

This is an old DirectX 11 benchmark, a newer version of Unigine 3.0 with relatively small differences. It displays a fantasy medieval town sprawling over several flying islands. The benchmark is still sometimes used, despite its significant age, as it was released back in 2013.

958

Passmark

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.

6598

Octane Render OctaneBench

This is a special benchmark measuring graphics card performance in OctaneRender, which is a realistic GPU rendering engine by OTOY Inc., available either as a standalone program, or as a plugin for 3DS Max, Cinema 4D and many other apps. It renders four different static scenes, then compares render times with a reference GPU which is currently GeForce GTX 980. This benchmark has nothing to do with gaming and is aimed at professional 3D graphics artists.
