In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 v2 are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600.

The GT 630 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the GT 630 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 5600 when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 512 MB more video memory than the GT 630, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 5600 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is slightly better than the GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 v2 has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 630 is 156 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The GT 630 having 79 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 630 transistor size technology is 50 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the GT 630 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 630 should consume less power than the Quadro FX 5600.

The GeForce GT 630 v2 requires 65 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 630 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 106 Watts more than the GT 630 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 5600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 630.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 630 v2 is Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GF108-400-A1 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 810MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 800MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 65W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 630 v2 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 530.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 630 v2.
A revolutionary unified architecture, NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5600 and 4600 graphics boards deliver optimized application performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set, including largest frame buffers, with a C programming environment, Quadro solutions solve the most complex problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 5600 and 4600 enables next generation applications with unprecedented image quality.
