NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 Max-Q: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 Max-Q

Summary

NVIDIA started Quadro RTX 4000 Max-Q sales 27 May 2019. This is Turing architecture notebook card based on 12 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 8 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 416.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Power consumption is at 80 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 46.74 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

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Cloud Gate is an outdated DirectX 11 feature level 10 benchmark that was used for home PCs and basic notebooks.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 Score

15010

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 Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.

Passmark

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.
