Just a few weeks after launching the monstrous 24GB Quadro M6000 graphics card, Nvidia is back at it again with the introduction of the Quadro M2000. This mid-range workstation graphics card is aimed at professionals who aren’t looking to invest a huge amount on a professional-grade graphics card.
Based on Nvidia’s 28nm Maxwell GM206 GPU (clocked at 1188MHz), the Quadro M2000 graphics card comes with 786 CUDA Cores, 4GB GDDR5 VRAM, 16 ROPs (render output unit) and consumes about 75W of power. Unlike other high-end Quadro graphics cards, the Quadro M2000 surprisingly sports a small form factor build.
Interestingly, the Quadro M2000 does not come with HDMI or VGA ports. Instead, Nvidia has equipped its latest Quadro graphics card with four DisplayPort 1.2 ports, capable of powering up to four 4K displays natively. Of course, being a brand new graphics card means that the Quadro M2000 will support a wide range of APIs including DirectX 12, OpenGL 2.5 as well as Vulkan.
Price however, was not mentioned by Nvidia. Sources are estimating the Quadro M2000 to be priced somewhere in the region of US$550 (about RM2,130) – about the same price as one would pay for two GTX 960’s. Regardless, one can find more information regarding the Nvidia Quadro M2000 here.
