In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro4 980 XGL are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro4 780 XGL.

The Quadro4 980 XGL has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Quadro4 780 XGL. This results in the Quadro4 980 XGL providing 0.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 10 or higher, so Texture Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

The Quadro4 980 XGL has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro4 780 XGL and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Quadro4 980 XGL providing 0.1 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. Neither of these GPUs support DirectX 9 or higher, so Pixel Rate holds more weight than when comparing more modern GPUs.

Both the Quadro4 980 XGL and the Quadro4 780 XGL were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

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

The Quadro4 980 XGL has 0.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro4 780 XGL, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro4 980 XGL is marginally better than the Quadro4 780 XGL.

Both the Quadro4 980 XGL and the Quadro4 780 XGL have 4 Shader Processing Units. 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, the Quadro4 980 XGL has 0.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 0.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 0.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a marginally faster performance than the Quadro4 780 XGL.
