In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the GeForce GT 220 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro FX 5600.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 220, 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 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is noticeably better than the GeForce GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 220 is 72 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The Quadro FX 5600 having 5 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro FX 5600 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the GeForce GT 220 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce GT 220 should consume less power than the Quadro FX 5600.

The GeForce GT 220 requires 58 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 220 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 113 Watts more than the GeForce GT 220 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 5600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 220.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 220 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G92 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 600MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 700MHz.

Features
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 58W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above a Radeon HD 4550, meaning it is only slightly slower than the more recent Fermi GeForce GT 430.
A 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.
