NVIDIA Quadro M500M: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro M500M

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro M500M sales 27 April 2016. This is Maxwell architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 14.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-A (3.0) interface. Power consumption is at 30 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.86 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
