    My Quadro M4000M arrived today. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do a lot of testing.

    The first Firestrike run is about the same as the GTX 970M.

    Quadro M4000M with 940XM
    6255

    6274 - with power settings to Performance (new Win 7 install)

    GTX 970M with 920XM (daughter's machine)
    6036
    http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7942992


    The card installed easily. No need to futz around with disabling the audio to get the hardware to install. A simple INF mod is required to install the drivers

    Driver: Quadro 364.72 QNF (Quadro New Feature)
    Max temp: 63c - Grizzly Kryonaut

    Nvidia Inspector allows for GPU overclocking up to +130MHz +135MHz. The slider does not move for memory overclocking. Funny thing is I lost performance.

    It runs out of power so I may have to see about getting this thing unlocked.

    Ask prema to unlock it. Be sure to give a contribution for all the hard work he does :)

    Pretty good news though. Stock performance is already greater than 970M! Shows that extra rops and vram bandwidth is more valuable than a clock speed boost.

    Any feedback about heat, power consumption compared to 970M?

    That's great news DS. Many thanks for taking it on, seems a great card at stock. Be good to see an in depth look at how it performs.
    As KIT asked, would like to know heat at load and also if the DP works OK as game on TV sometimes.

    Max temp was 63c when the GPU was overclocked by 130MHz. :D

    This is fantastic! Looks like a well balanced card while the lack of vram on the underside really helps the M15x cool the card under load. Need to unchain the beast however!

    Did you contact Prema :)

    I did contact Prema.

    I want to see how this does. Right now it does not appear to matter if it is overclocked due to the power limit being pegged.

    I will check DisplayPort functionality for you as soon as I can buddy. I left town this morning and won't be home until later this evening.

    DisplayPort works perfectly with my TV, sound and all. Looks good!
