NVIDIA Quadro K2100M is a mid-range graphics chip, announced in mid Q2 of 2013. It is part of the Kepler generation and relies on a GK106 core, constructed through a 28nm process. It consists of three shader blocks, known as SMX, and each of those has 192 smaller shader cores, also known as CUDA, for a total of 576 CUDA cores. The package also includes 48 texture cores and 16 raster cores.
All of them operate at a base 667MHz and there is no boost option. NVIDIA has not included the optional GPU Boost 2.0 in this series. Normally, if the laptop’s cooling capacity allows for it, GPU Boost 2.0 can increase the clock frequency.
The chip has a 128bit bus, 2GB of GDDR5 memory, and its power consumption peeks at 55 watts. NVIDIA Quadro K2100M supports DirectX 11, Pixel Shader 5.0, Optimus, PhysX, OpenCL 1.2, OpenGL 4.4, 3D Vision, 3DTV Play and CUDA. Memory bandwidth is 80GB/sec. The K2100M can actively output to four individual displays with a max resolution of 3840×2160 (4K).
