NVIDIA Quadro K3100M was launched in 2013 as a GPU for mobile workstations. It is built on 28nm technology and uses a GK104 processor. It is one of the high-end graphics cards by NVIDIA with support for DirectX 12. It has impressive features, translating to the highest performance possible. If you think you are running very workload-heavy 3D graphic applications, we invite you to try this one.
This GPU is based on the Kepler architecture which comprises 8 shader blocks. 4 blocks are active in the Quadro K3100M, giving it a total of 768 active CUDA cores. Why the Kepler architecture? In the current world, there is a need to conserve energy by using it sparingly. High-performing graphic processors are power-hungry, but that has to be in check. Compared to the Fermi architecture, which is the alternative, Kepler is more energy-efficient. It is, therefore, widely adopted in the current GPUs.
We derive the performance of a graphical processing unit from its specifications. For NVIDIA Quadro K3100M, there is a massive 4Gb GDDR5 memory interfaced through a 256-bit but. The GPU and memory clocks at 706MHz and 800MHz, respectively. These features combined result in a whopping 102.4GBps of bandwidth. With this high throughput, 64 texture mapping units, and 32 ROPs, the GPU offers a record-breaking performance. Even if you have the most memory-intensive application, you will still be able to run it smoothly on any computer with this card.
The NVIDIA Quadro K3100M can support up to 4 active displays simultaneously. Using the digital DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI ports, you can connect high-resolution monitors of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels. The inclusion of PureVideo HD video processor in this GPU Makes it possible to provide hardware decoding of high definition videos. It supports all popular codecs with 4K resolution, with only the MPEG-4 supported at a maximum resolution of 1080p.
Power consumption in GPUs is a big problem, but it is solved in Quadro K3100M cards. The GPU is rated 75W at maximum performance, which is much lower than what many other graphics cards of its capability are rated for.
