NVIDIA Quadro P4000 And P2000 Workstation GPU Review: Midrange Professional Pascal

Quadro P4000 & P2000 LuxMark And Cinebench OGL Tests

LuxMark is a cross-platform, OpenCL-accelerated 3D rendering benchmark. It's 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


Here, the Quadro P4000 actually pulls ahead of the P5000 in two of the three tests, due to the P4000's higher memory clock and increased memory bandwidth. The P5000 has more compute resources, but not as much memory bandwidth.

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...


NVIDIA's drivers don't allow this benchmark to fully leverage all of the GPU's resources, which results in artificially low frame rates. As a result, the Radeon Pro WX series cards take the top two spots, followed by a tight grouping of the NVIDIA-powered cards.
