The Quadro 500M was a professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in February 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GF108 graphics processor, in its N12M-Q3 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GF108 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 116 mm² and 585 million transistors. It features 96 shading units, 16 texture mapping units and 4 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 1,024 MB DDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 700 MHz, memory is running at 900 MHz.
Being a mxm module card, its power draw is rated at 35 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it.
