In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 3000 are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL.

The Quadro FX 3000 was released less than a year after the Quadro4 780 XGL, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 Quadro FX 3000 has 128 MB more video memory than the Quadro4 780 XGL, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 3000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 3000 has 9.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 780 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 3000 is marginally better than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 4 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3000 has 3. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro FX 3000, 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 Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
