NVIDIA Quadro P500: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro P500

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro P500 sales 5 January 2018. This is Pascal architecture notebook card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 64 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 32.1 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 30 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 7.72 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000.
