In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are noticeably better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 4600.

The Quadro FX 5600 was released less than a year after the Quadro FX 4600, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 768 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 4600, 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 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 4600, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is marginally better than the Quadro FX 4600.

The Quadro FX 4600 has 112 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 4600 is 56 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The Quadro FX 5600 having 21 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro FX 5600 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 4600.

The Quadro FX 4600 requires 134 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 4600 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 37 Watts more than the Quadro FX 4600 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 5600 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro FX 4600.
