In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The HD 3800 was released less than a year after the Quadro FX 5600, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 1024 MB more video memory than the HD 3800, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 5600 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 76.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 3800, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is much better than the HD 3800.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 128 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3800 series has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3800 is 0. The Quadro FX 5600 having 77 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro FX 5600 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3800.

The HD 3800 transistor size technology is 35 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the HD 3800 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600.

The Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 3800 series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewA revolutionary unified architecture, NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5600 and 4600 graphics boards deliver optimized application performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set, including largest frame buffers, with a C programming environment, Quadro solutions solve the most complex problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 5600 and 4600 enables next generation applications with unprecedented image quality. Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
