In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro K4000M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT SLI.

The Quadro K4000M was released over three years more recently than the 9800M GT, and so the Quadro K4000M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the 9800M GT when running the latest games.

The Quadro K4000M has 3072 MB more video memory than the 9800M GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the 9800M GT has superior memory performance.

The 9800M GT has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro K4000M, which means that the memory performance of the 9800M GT is slightly better than the Quadro K4000M.

The GeForce 9800M GT SLI has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro K4000M has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the 9800M GT is 96 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro K4000M is 577. The Quadro K4000M having 481 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro K4000M delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the 9800M GT.

The Quadro K4000M transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the 9800M GT. This means that the Quadro K4000M is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the 9800M GT.

The GeForce 9800M GT SLI requires 130 Watts to run and the Quadro K4000M requires 100 Watts. The 9800M GT requires 30 Watts more than the Quadro K4000M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the 9800M GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro K4000M.

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.
Quadro K4000M is a high-end business card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
Technically the successor to the previous Quadro 4000M, it's based on the Kepler GK104 (despite the SPU count) and offers 960 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 600MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 700MHz.
Quadro K4000M's drivers are certified for professional applications. Therefore, and also because it's underclocked, its performance lies closer to GeForce GTX 675M despite the similarities to GeForce GTX 675MX.
