In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The K600 PNY was released over three years more recently than the HD 3800, and so the K600 PNY is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 3800 when running the latest games.

The K600 PNY has 512 MB more video memory than the HD 3800, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the K600 PNY also has superior memory performance overall.

The K600 PNY has 29 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 3800, which means that the memory performance of the K600 PNY is slightly better than the HD 3800.

The Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3800 series has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the K600 PNY is 168 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3800 is 0. The K600 PNY having 168 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the K600 PNY delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3800.

The K600 PNY transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 3800. This means that the K600 PNY is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 3800. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the K600 PNY should consume less power than the HD 3800.

The Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition requires 41 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 3800 series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the K600 PNY.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Professional Quadro K600, created by PNY.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit runs at the same speed.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock runs at 667MHz and the Frame Buffer was Doubled to 1GB. This is a gimmick and in no way benefits the GPU.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, Quadro K600 PNY 1GB Edition is as fast as the reference Quadro K600.
Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
