In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 730 Afox Low Profile 4GB Edition.

The GT 730 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the GT 730 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 730 has 2560 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 62.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 730, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is much better than the GT 730.

The GeForce GT 730 Afox Low Profile 4GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 730 is 346 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The GT 730 having 269 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 730 transistor size technology is 62 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the GT 730 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 730 should consume less power than the Quadro FX 5600.

The GeForce GT 730 Afox Low Profile 4GB Edition requires 23 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 148 Watts more than the GT 730 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 730.

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 730 Afox Low Profile 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Middle-Class GeForce GT 730, created by AFOX.

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

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock remains the same while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling System remains the same.

Without Overclocking Out of The Box, GeForce GT 730 Afox Low Profile 4GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GT 730.
A revolutionary unified architecture, NVIDIA QuadroŽ 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.
