In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7730 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600.

The HD 7730 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the HD 7730 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 HD 7730, 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 48 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7730, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is noticeably better than the HD 7730.

The Radeon HD 7730 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 7730 is 261 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The HD 7730 having 184 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD 7730 transistor size technology is 62 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the HD 7730 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600.

The Radeon HD 7730 v2 Sapphire 1GB Edition requires 47 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 7730 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 124 Watts more than the HD 7730 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 HD 7730.
