In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 5670 Gigabyte 1GB OC Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600.

The HD 5670 was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the HD 5670 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro FX 5600.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 512 MB more video memory than the HD 5670, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 5600 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 5670, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is slightly better than the HD 5670.

The Radeon HD 5670 Gigabyte 1GB OC Edition has 400 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 5670 is 190 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The HD 5670 having 113 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 5670 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 5600.

The HD 5670 transistor size technology is 50 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the HD 5670 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600.

The Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD 5670. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the HD 5670.
