NVIDIA Quadro M5000: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro M5000

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro M5000 sales 29 June 2015 at a recommended price of 2,856.99 USD. This is high-end 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 card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. An additional 1 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 50.30 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
