In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are noticeably better than the AMD FirePro V3750.

The FirePro V3750 was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the FirePro V3750 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 1280 MB more video memory than the FirePro V3750, 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 54.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro V3750, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is much better than the FirePro V3750.

The FirePro V3750 has 320 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro V3750 is 114 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The FirePro V3750 having 37 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The FirePro V3750 transistor size technology is 35 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the FirePro V3750 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600.

The FirePro V3750 requires 48 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FirePro V3750 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 123 Watts more than the FirePro V3750 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 FirePro V3750.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
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.
