In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 315 512MB are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL.

The GeForce 315 512MB has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro4 780 XGL. This results in the GeForce 315 512MB providing 5.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since the GeForce 315 512MB supports up to DirectX 10.1.

The GeForce 315 512MB has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Quadro4 780 XGL. This results in the GeForce 315 512MB providing 2.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. The GeForce 315 512MB supports up to DirectX 10.1, so pixeling performance is not particularly relevant for this GPU. It would be relevant for comparing the Quadro4 780 XGL with other old GPUs, but in this case it is probably safe to say that the GeForce 315 512MB is superior.

The GeForce 315 512MB was released over three years more recently than the Quadro4 780 XGL, and so the GeForce 315 512MB is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro4 780 XGL 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 GeForce 315 512MB has 384 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 GeForce 315 512MB also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce 315 512MB has 8.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 780 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 315 512MB is marginally better than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

The Quadro4 780 XGL has 4 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 315 512MB has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro4 780 XGL is 1 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 315 512MB is 52. The GeForce 315 512MB having 51 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 315 512MB delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

The GeForce 315 512MB transistor size technology is 110 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro4 780 XGL. This means that the GeForce 315 512MB is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro4 780 XGL. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 315 512MB should consume less power than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

The GeForce 315 512MB requires 33 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Quadro4 780 XGL. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce 315 512MB, 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.GeForce 315 is an entry-level GFX based on the 2009, 40nm, second-generation unified architecture.
It's based on the GT216 Core and offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit memory interface of standard DDR3. The central unit runs at 475MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 790MHz.
Its therefore an underclocked GeForce GT 220 and should perform considerably worse.
Today's modern demanding games are only playable at the lowest settings or unplayable at all. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
