In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 560 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT.

The Quadro FX 560 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 6600 GT, and so the Quadro FX 560 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 6600 GT.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Quadro FX 560 and the GeForce 6600 GT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro FX 560 has 4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6600 GT, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 560 is marginally better than the GeForce 6600 GT.

The Quadro FX 560 has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6600 GT has 11. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 560 is 4 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6600 GT is 6. The GeForce 6600 GT having 2 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 560 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Quadro FX 560 requires 30 Watts to run and the GeForce 6600 GT requires 48 Watts. The GeForce 6600 GT requires 18 Watts more than the Quadro FX 560 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 6600 GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro FX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro FX 560 is a professional Graphics Card with driver support for professional applications.
It's based on the G73 architecture (GL Core) and offers 12 Pixel Shaders, on a 128-bit memory interface of GDDR3.
It's related to desktop GeForce 7600 GT but should offer performance similar (though worse) to GeForce 7600 GS, due to the similarities.
Supercharge your gaming with the power of an NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPU. The NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GPUs deliver best-in-class performance and advanced visual effects for next-generation games. The only GPU in its class with support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and with support for PCI Express, the GeForce 6600 delivers ultra-realistic effects, unmatched features, and rock-solid stability so you can play your game the way itís meant to be played.
