NVIDIA Quadro P400: specs and benchmarks
- Interface PCIe 3.0 x16
- Core clock speed 1228 MHz
- Max video memory 2 GB
- Memory type GDDR5
- Memory clock speed 4008 MHz
- Maximum resolution
NVIDIA started Quadro P400 sales 7 February 2017 at a recommended price of $119.99. This is Pascal architecture desktop card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 32.06 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 145 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 30 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

APIs supported by Quadro P400, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of Quadro P400. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
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.
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.
Let's see how good Quadro P400 is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
Overall Quadro P400 performance compared to nearest competitors among server video cards.
We believe that the nearest equivalent to Quadro P400 from AMD is FirePro W4100, which is slower by 5% and lower by 16 positions in our rating.
