The Quadro K500M was a professional graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in June 2012. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GK107 graphics processor, in its N14M-Q1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GK107 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 118 mm² and 1,270 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GT 640 OEM, which uses the same GPU but has all 384 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the Quadro K500M to reach the product's target shader count. It features 192 shading units, 16 texture mapping units and 8 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 1,024 MB DDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 850 MHz, memory is running at 800 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.
