NVIDIA Quadro M1000M
Released in 2015, the Quadro M1000M is a GPU from NVIDIA. According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is a bad card for gaming with a score of 5%.
The Quadro M1000M has 4 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 78 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.
In terms of clock speed, the Quadro M1000M GPU core runs at a frequency of 993 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the Quadro M1000M supports up to DirectX 12.1. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
The NVIDIA Quadro M1000M has a TDP of 40W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
