In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 260 are noticeably better than the Nvidia Quadro K2200.

The Radeon R7 260 has a 333 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro K2200. This results in the Radeon R7 260 providing 21.3 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon R7 260 has a 333 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro K2200 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R7 260 providing 5.3 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 Quadro K2200 was released less than a year after the Radeon R7 260, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Quadro K2200 has 2048 MB more video memory than the Radeon R7 260, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon R7 260 has superior memory performance.

The Radeon R7 260 has 16 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro K2200, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R7 260 is slightly better than the Quadro K2200.

The Quadro K2200 has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 260 has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro K2200 is 576 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 260 is 653. The Radeon R7 260 having 77 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R7 260 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro K2200.

The Quadro K2200 requires 68 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 260 requires 95 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro K2200 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 260. The Radeon R7 260 requires 27 Watts more than the Quadro K2200 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 260 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro K2200.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro K2200 is a fast-middle-class professional card based on the 28nm, Maxwell architecture.

It's based on the Maxwell GM107 and offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 667MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 1250MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 2048KB and a rated board TDP of 68 Watts.

Quadro K2200's drivers are certified for professional applications only. Its gaming performance is about 15% slower than GeForce GTX 750.
Radeon R7 260 is a fast-middle-class graphics card based on the Second Revision of the GCN architecture. It packs a Core codenamed Bonaire PRO.
The Bonaire PRO is a cut-down version of the Bonaire XT Core used on Radeon HD 7790. It comes with 14 Compute Units and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. This, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. Compared to the Bonaire XT Core, it has support for DirectX 11.2 and has support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 10% slower than Radeon HD 7790 and a little over that when taking Radeon R7 260X as a reference.
The card proves to be very inefficient seeing as it has a higher rated TDP board than Radeon HD 7790 and its release price of $109 makes Radeon HD 7850 a better option.
