NVIDIA Quadro M5000: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro M5000 sales 29 June 2015 at a recommended price of $2,856.99 . This is a 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 6.61 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of Up to 211 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1 x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 24.22% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
