NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 Review The Balanced Quadro GPU


NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 Specifications

Here are the key specs for the Quadro RTX 5000:

The specifications for the Quadro RTX 5000 are relatively close to a GeForce RTX 2080 Super from the compute side while the Quadro RTX 5000 supports twice the memory.

Another major and important feature here for some is that these cards utilize ECC memory. That is a big break from consumer-level cards which do not. For many professional applications, ECC memory is a requirement.

Testing the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000

Here is our test configuration:

Here is the obligatory GPU-Z shot of the Quadro RTX 5000:

GPU-Z shows the primary stats of our testing the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000. The GPU clocks in at 1,620 MHz and can boost up to 1,815 MHz. Pixel Fillrates run at 116.2 GPixels/s, and Texture Fillrate comes in at 348.5 GTexel/s, while memory runs at 1,750 MHz.

Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.


  1. “Certified” most of the times means more expensive for a cheaper alternative. It’s the same chip as used in the Geforce cards and artificial bottlenecked when possible.

  2. The AIDA64 results for double precision seem to indicate like many other cards outside of the V100 price segment that this is an AI and graphics card that is not good for HPC. It would be nice to include the Titan-V in the AIDA64 table to see 64-bit float difference.

    Another interesting card, for developers and scientists who don’t have a US$ 13000 budget for a V100 are the Radeon VII cards from AMD which can run CUDA (mostly) with the HIP compiler.

  3. @Jim:
    Well yes, but not for dinky toys at the moment, they make them for supercomputers like the HPE-Cray/AMD with the El Capitan 2 Exaflop Supercomputer.
