In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro V7800 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition.

The GTX 650 was released over a year more recently than the FirePro V7800, and so the GTX 650 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FirePro V7800.

The FirePro V7800 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 650, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro V7800 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro V7800 has 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro V7800 is noticeably better than the GTX 650.

The GeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro V7800 has 1440. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 is 426 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V7800 is 655. The FirePro V7800 having 229 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro V7800 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650.

The FirePro V7800 requires 138 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 650. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 650.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Gigabyte OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 650 1GB.
This special edition comes overclocked out of the box to 1110MHz and features a custom-designed 10 cm cooler.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this GPU is suitable for medium to high settings on most demanding games but not with extreme resolutions.
Ultra-fast performance, superb visual quality and massively parallel power in a single slot, high-end card. <r> The ATI FirePro V7800 is ideally suited for professionals who work on complex models and visual effects and need to meet the requirements of demanding visualization jobs. <r> The ATI FirePro V7800 features three independent video outputs (two DisplayPort and one dual-link DVI) with ATI Eyefinity technology and less than 150W max board power in a single slot.
