In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT SLI are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 360M.

The 9800M GT was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 360M, and so the 9800M GT is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro FX 360M.

The 9800M GT has 768 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 360M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the 9800M GT also has superior memory performance overall.

The 9800M GT has 92.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 360M, which means that the memory performance of the 9800M GT is massively better than the Quadro FX 360M.

The 9800M GT has 192 Shader Processing Units but the Quadro FX 360M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The 9800M GT transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 360M. This means that the 9800M GT is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 360M.

The GeForce 9800M GT SLI requires 130 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 360M requires 17 Watts. The 9800M GT requires 113 Watts more than the Quadro FX 360M to run. The difference is significant enough that the 9800M GT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro FX 360M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 9800M GT SLI is a solution of two GeForce 9800M GT put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce 9800M GT to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, up to X% better than a single GeForce 9800M GT performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce 9800M GT.
A few demanding games will run at the highest settings with fluent frame rates (30+) but overall most games will require reduced settings to be played optimally.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
