PNY Pro Tips #6: Quadro Advanced Power Management

Posted by PNY Pro on Mon, Nov 26, 2018 @ 02:39 PM

When building a powerful workstation utilizing multiple graphics boards, an adequate and clean power supply to the power hungry GPUs is key to overall system stability and performance. 

Overdrawing power can cause instability and system crashes, or could potentially overheat power cables to the extent of melting the plastic shielding and causing catastrophic shorts, or even a fire.

NVIDIA’s Quadro product line implements extremely advanced power management technologies developed by NVIDIA engineering to allow Quadro graphics cards to run at their optimal performance without going over a specified power requirement.  This allows system engineers and IT administrators to budget their power requirement on a per system and per installation basis easily and accurately.

GeForce graphics cards, in pursuit of absolute gaming performance, will allow GPUs to exceed their target power requirement in search of extra performance.  In a single or dual card gaming environment, this performance boost is great for gamers seeking the last frame per second, but it is not ideal for mission critical applications where every Watt from the power supply needs to be carefully budgeted and accounted for.
