In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 630 v4.

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 GT 630 has 512 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 5600, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 47.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 630, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is noticeably better than the GT 630.

The GeForce GT 630 v4 has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 630 is 168 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The GT 630 having 91 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 62 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the GT 630 is expected to run massively 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 v4 requires 50 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GT 630 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 121 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 v4 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-301-A2 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessor activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 875MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 891MHz.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
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 v4.
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.
