(Test) NVIDIA Quadro P5000 vs GeForce GTX 1080

PNY Quadro P5000

1 – Overview

I received a PNY Quadro P5000 graphics accelerator three days ago. But for few days only… So during this short lapse of time, I decided to compare its graphics performances with the GeForce GTX 1080 ones. Why the GTX 1080? Because both graphics cards are based on the same Pascal GP104 GPU and the P5000 cost more than twice the price of the GTX 1080…

Here are the main features of this PNY Quadro P5000:

  • GPU: Pascal GP104, base clock: 1607MHz, boost clock: 1733MHz, TSMC 16nm
  • CUDA cores: 2560
  • Texture units: 160
  • ROPs: 64
  • Memory: 16GB GDDR5X @ 4513MHz, 256-bit memory interface
  • TDP: 180W
  • FP32: 8.9 TFLOPS
  • FP64: 1/32 FP32

3 – Quadro P5000 GPU Data

The Quadro P5000 has the same clock speed than the GeForce GTX 180 reference model. The max power target is 100% TDP, the overclocking is clearly not an option (the P5000 has only one 8-pin power connector).

Update (2017.05.15 @ 20:30 pm)
The GTX 1080 (or GTX 1070/1060) exposes 391 OpenGL extensions while 398 are present on the Quadro P5000. Here is the list of those 7 additional GL extensions available on the P5000:

- GL_ARB_cl_event
- GL_NVX_shared_sync_object
- GL_NV_deep_texture3D
- GL_NVX_sysmem_buffer
- WGL_NV_gpu_affinity
- WGL_NV_swap_group
- WGL_NV_video_capture
