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

Quadro P4000 & P2000 - The Wrap Up

Performance Summary: The new NVIDIA Quadro P4000 and P2000 performed relatively strong throughout our entire battery of tests. In compute workloads, they competed well against the AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100 and WX 7100 series of cards, but in the SPECviewperf rendering tests, the P4000 and P2000 finished well out in front, save for only a single result (showcase-01), where the WX 7100 was able to edge past the P2000. The Quadro P4000, however, trailed only the more powerful (and more expensive) NVIDIA Quadro cards.

The NVIDIA Quadro P4000 and Quadro P2000 are not available just yet. They are slated to arrive next month, with estimated street pricing in the $800 range for the Quadro P4000 and $500 range for the Quadro P2000. At those prices, the Quadro P4000 and P2000 will be roughly 25% pricier than the Radeon Pro WX 7100 (currently $629) and Radeon Pro WX 5100 (currently $397). Depending on your particular workload, however, the Quadro’s price premium is easily justified. The P4000 outpaced the WX 7100 by more than 25% in most of the SPECviewperf professional design and rendering tests, and the P2000 was faster in 7 out of 8 of the tests as well.

Now that NVIDIA has completely fleshed out its Quadro line-up with Pascal-based offerings, the company has class-leading or highly-competitive products in every market segment. The company's high-end Quadro P6000 and P5000 are currently unmatched, and the more mainstream P4000 and P2000 featured here are excellent, quiet, power-friendly, relatively affordable options as well.
