3DMark Ice Storm GPU

Ice Storm Graphics is an obsolete benchmark, part of 3DMark suite. Ice Storm was used to measure entry level laptops and Windows-based tablets performance. It utilizes DirectX 11 feature level 9 to display a battle between two space fleets near a frozen planet in 1280x720 resolution. Discontinued in January 2020, it is now superseded by 3DMark Night Raid.

P5000 Mobile 401246

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Cloud Gate is an outdated DirectX 11 feature level 10 benchmark that was used for home PCs and basic notebooks.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 Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.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3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution.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.

Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 Mobile

Much newer (27 May 2019 vs 11 January 2017)

More pipelines (2560 vs 2048)

Higher memory bandwidth (448 vs 192 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 16 nm)



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 P5000 Mobile

59.4% faster (about 1.5 times) in synthetic tests

Cheaper ($2137 vs $2890)

Lower power consumption (100W vs 110W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

Optimus (lowers energy usage by automatically switching between integrated and discrete NVIDIA GPU. Similar to AMD Enduro)

PhysX (hardware acceleration of physical simulation engine named PhysX)

So, which one is the better GPU?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends NVIDIA Quadro P5000 Mobile, since it shows better performance.
