In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro Plex 7000 are massively better than the AMD FirePro V5900.

The FirePro V5900 has a 26 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro Plex 7000, but the Quadro Plex 7000 has 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the FirePro V5900. As a result, the Quadro Plex 7000 exhibits a 54.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the FirePro V5900. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The FirePro V5900 has a 26 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro Plex 7000, but the Quadro Plex 7000 has 64 more Render Output Units than the FirePro V5900. As a result, the Quadro Plex 7000 exhibits a 35.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the FirePro V5900. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Quadro Plex 7000 was released less than a year after the FirePro V5900, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 10240 MB more video memory than the FirePro V5900, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro Plex 7000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 160 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro V5900, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is massively better than the FirePro V5900.

The FirePro V5900 has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro Plex 7000 has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro V5900 is 200 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is 1176. The Quadro Plex 7000 having 976 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro Plex 7000 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FirePro V5900.

The FirePro V5900 requires 75 Watts to run and the Quadro Plex 7000 requires 600 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the FirePro V5900 and a PSU with at least 900 Watts for the Quadro Plex 7000. The Quadro Plex 7000 requires 525 Watts more than the FirePro V5900 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro Plex 7000 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the FirePro V5900.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewFirePro C5900 is a server Graphics Card based on the 40nm Terascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Cayman Core (related to Radeon HD 6950) and therefore offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 600MHz while the memory clock operates at 1000MHZ.
Despite featuring a Cayman Core, its LE variant features over 100% less Shader Processing Units and thus its performance lies between Radeon HD 6670 and Radeon HD 6750.
Quadro Plex 7000 is an enthusiast professional card based on the 40nm, Fermi architecture.

It's based on 2 Fermi GF100 GPUs and thus offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 96 ROPs, on a 768-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 574MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 750MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 1536KB and a rated board TDP of 600 Watts.

Despite exhibiting similarities to GeForce GTX 590, due to being under-clocked and because Quadro Plex 7000's drivers are only certified for professional applications only, its gaming performance is up to 10% slower than GeForce GTX 590.
