Quadro M2000 LuxMark and Cinbench OpenGL Tests

LuxMark is a cross-platform, Open CL-accelerated 3D rendering benchmark. Its a tool based on the open source LuxRender physically-based spectral rendering engine, which accurately models the transportation of light and supports high dynamic range. LuxRender features a number of material types to allow rendering of photo-realistic and artistic scenes. LuxRender is free software, licensed under the GPL, that offers plugins for packages like Blender, Maya, Cinema 4D and 3DS Max.

LuxMark v3.1
OpenCL Benchmark


The Quadro M2000 trailed the FirePro W4300 in the LuxBall HDR test (which is the least taxing of the bunch), but pulled ahead in the Newman TLM-102-SE and Hotel Lobby Tests by a relatively wide margin.

Cinebench R15
OpenGL Benchmark
Cinebench R15’s OpenGL benchmark uses a complex 3D scene depicting a car chase (created by renderbaron) to measure a GPU’s performance. The benchmark employs a large amount of geometry (nearly 1 million polygons) and textures, and features a variety of effects, such as bump maps, transparency, and complex lighting. Scores in this test are reported in frames per second...


The Quadro M2000 jumped out to a huge lead in the Cinebench OpenGL graphics benchmark, besting the FirePro card by about 60 frames per second.
