In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL are very slightly better than the AMD FireGL 8800.

The Quadro4 780 XGL was released over a year more recently than the FireGL 8800, and so the Quadro4 780 XGL is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FireGL 8800.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Quadro4 780 XGL and the FireGL 8800 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 2.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FireGL 8800, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is marginally better than the FireGL 8800.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 4 Shader Processing Units and the FireGL 8800 has 2. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the FireGL 8800 is 0. The Quadro4 780 XGL having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro4 780 XGL delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FireGL 8800.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL 8800, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the Quadro4 780 XGL.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro4 780 XGL is a professional graphics card that will deliver similar gaming performance to GeForce4 Ti 4400, though worse due to the lack of support for gaming drivers.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. The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, 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.
