In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 are noticeably better than the AMD FirePro S9150.

The FirePro S9150 has a 37 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 780, but the GeForce GTX 780 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the FirePro S9150. As a result, the GeForce GTX 780 exhibits a 7.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the FirePro S9150. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The FirePro S9150 has a 37 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 780. This results in the FirePro S9150 providing 16.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The FirePro S9150 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 780, and so the FirePro S9150 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 780.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The FirePro S9150 has 13312 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 780, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro S9150 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro S9150 has 31.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 780, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro S9150 is noticeably better than the GeForce GTX 780.

The FirePro S9150 has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780 has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 780 is 2078. The FirePro S9150 having 456 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro S9150 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 780.

The FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 780 requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GeForce GTX 780, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the FirePro S9150. The GeForce GTX 780 requires 15 Watts more than the FirePro S9150 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 780 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the FirePro S9150.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewFirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
GeForce GTX 780 is a high-end graphics-card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
It's based on the Kepler GK110 Core (same used on Titan) but with 12 SMX activated and therefore offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 863MHz and goes up to 902MHz in Turbo, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz. It consumes up to 250W.
Benchmarks indicate that its performance is up to 30% better than previous GeForce GTX 680 and thus allows even the most demanding games to be playable at the highest settings, at 1080p. With proper overclocking and cooling, it can surpass GeForce GTX Titan.
