In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3400.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra was released less than a year after the Quadro FX 3400, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 3400 and the GeForce 6800 Ultra have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 3400, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is marginally better than the Quadro FX 3400.

The Quadro FX 3400 has 6 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 Ultra has 22. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3400 is 2 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is 9. The GeForce 6800 Ultra having 7 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6800 Ultra delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 3400.

The Quadro FX 3400 requires 101 Watts to run and the GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 124 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro FX 3400. The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 23 Watts more than the Quadro FX 3400 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 6800 Ultra to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro FX 3400.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe 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.The groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
