Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Video outputs and ports

Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.

3DMark Cloud Gate GPU

Cloud Gate is an outdated DirectX 11 feature level 10 benchmark that was used for home PCs and basic notebooks. It displays a few scenes of some weird space teleportation device launching spaceships into unknown, using fixed resolution of 1280x720. Just like Ice Storm benchmark, it has been discontinued in January 2020 and replaced by 3DMark Night Raid.

3DMark Fire Strike Graphics

Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.

3DMark 11 Performance GPU

3DMark 11 is an obsolete DirectX 11 benchmark by Futuremark. It used four tests based on two scenes, one being few submarines exploring the submerged wreck of a sunken ship, the other is an abandoned temple deep in the jungle. All the tests are heavy with volumetric lighting and tessellation, and despite being done in 1280x720 resolution, are relatively taxing. Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.

3DMark Vantage Performance

3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution. It taxes the graphics card with two scenes, one depicting a girl escaping some militarized base located within a sea cave, the other displaying a space fleet attack on a defenseless planet. It was discontinued in April 2017, and Time Spy benchmark is now recommended to be used instead.

Here are some closest AMD rivals to Quadro RTX 3000 Mobile:

Competitors of Quadro T2000 Max-Q from AMD

We believe that the nearest equivalent to Quadro T2000 Max-Q from AMD is Radeon Pro 5500M, which is slower by 4% and lower by 9 positions in our rating.

Here are some closest AMD rivals to Quadro T2000 Max-Q:

Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 Mobile

176.5% faster (about 3 times) in synthetic tests

Wider memory bus (192 vs 128 bit)

More pipelines (1920 vs 1024)

Higher memory bandwidth (448 vs 128 GB/s)

DLSS

Raytracing

VR Ready

G-SYNC (removes screen tearing by telling the display when to renew the image. Only works with G-SYNC compatible displays)

Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)

Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro T2000 Max-Q

Lower power consumption (40W vs 80W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

So, which one is the better GPU?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 Mobile, since it shows better performance.
