In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700.

The HD 6670 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 3700, and so the HD 6670 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 3700 when running the latest games.

The HD 6670 has 512 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 3700, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Quadro FX 3700 has superior memory performance.

The Quadro FX 3700 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 6670, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 3700 is slightly better than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition has 480 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700 has 112. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 6670 is 192 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700 is 140. The HD 6670 having 52 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 3700 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD 6670 transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 3700. This means that the HD 6670 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 3700.

The Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition requires 66 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700 requires 78 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 6670 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro FX 3700. The Quadro FX 3700 requires 12 Watts more than the HD 6670 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro FX 3700 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD 6670.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Radeon HD 6670 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference Radeon HD 6670 v2.
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.
