NVIDIA Quadro M2000M
The Quadro M2000M is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in December 2015. This GPU is bad at gaming with a score of 5% in our PC benchmark.
The Quadro M2000M 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 M2000M GPU core runs at a frequency of 1029 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1098 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 M2000M supports up to DirectX 12.1. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 55W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
