In this review, we will look at the NVIDIA Quadro P620. The NVIDIA Quadro P620 is very common in lower power workstations and servers as one of the smallest form factor graphics cards you can get. While the NVIDIA Tesla V100 and Tesla T4 may grab headlines, cards like the Quadro P620 have large installed bases and are adopted by many OEMs.
Primarily there are three drivers for configuring a Quadro P620. First, the low cost, low profile, single-width form factor fits in many chassis offering deployment capability. Second, there are four digital display outputs which many traditional servers lack but are important for multi-monitor setups as well as running digital signage and office dashboards. Third, the Quadro P620 offers application certifications that many organizations require for support. With that context, we are not expecting the fastest card in our review, but we wanted to see how it compares to the other GPUs we have tested because it is so widely used.
NVIDIA Quadro P620 Overview
The NVIDIA Quadro P620 measures in at 5.7” long and does not use additional power connectors. The AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100 was 6.6” long with the same 4x Mini-DisplayPorts. NVIDIA is clearly optimizing on card length here. One fan at the end of the card provides cooling, even at full loads, this fan does not make a great deal of noise.
One will note the length of the Quadro P620 just barely extends past the end of a PCIe slot which is perfect for low-profile workstation cases and server installations. The PCIe x16 physical connector also has a GPU support arm which can be used with compatible motherboards to secure the card further for reliable OEM system shipping and handling.
At the output end of the Quadro P620, we find the 4x Mini-DisplayPorts. If you need a different display output format, you can get adapters for just about anything.
Overall, with a low power GPU, 2GB of memory, and a 40W maximum power consumption, there is not too much going on with the P620 which means we can have a shorter overview section in this review.
Next, let us take a look at the Quadro P620 key specifications and continue on with our performance testing.
