NVIDIA Quadro P620 Power Consumption
For our power testing, we used AIDA64 to stress the GPU, then HWiNFO to monitor power use and temperatures.
After the stress test has ramped up the NVIDIA Quadro P620 we see it tops out at 34 Watts under full load and 6Watts at idle. It is very close to the AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100. The card is 40W maximum in its specifications but we did not hit that value. This is one of the key advantages of a low power GPU like the P620. Its low power operation means that it can fit in deployments higher-end GPUs simply cannot.
A key reason that we started this series was to answer the cooling question.
Temperatures for the Quadro P620 run at 70C which gets warm when under full load. At idle we saw only 29C. While power use between the NVIDIA Quadro P620 and AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100 are close to equal, the P620 runs considerably cooler.
The NVIDIA Quadro P620 is another several-year-old graphics card that just keeps on plugging away due to its small form factor, low-power use, and cool running. Like the AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100, another big feature is its 4x Mini-DisplayPorts that allow one to set up 4x 4K displays. This is useful for HFT users, digital signage, office dashboards, and others that require a number of displays to monitor various tasks. The GPUs also have NVENC support for two streams and are often used for media-transcode workloads. The NVIDIA Quadro P620 works very well for it’s is designed for, low-power, low-heat, SFF use cases.
