Quadro P6000 And P5000 Review: NVIDIA's Most Powerful Pascal Graphics Cards

Quadro P6000 & P5000 LuxMark And Cinebench OpenGL 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


OpenCL is a strong suite for the Polaris-based AMD Radeon Pro WX cards. The Radeon Pro WX 7100 in particular outpaces the Quadro P5000 here in two of the three scenes. The Quadro P6000, however, leads the pack in all of the tests, contested only by the previous-gen M6000.

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...


A bug in NVIDIA's drivers doesn't allow this benchmark to fully utilize the GPU, 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.
