In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro K5000 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition.

The GTX 560 has a 194 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro K5000, but the Quadro K5000 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560. As a result, the Quadro K5000 exhibits a 40 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 560. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 560 has a 194 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro K5000 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 560 providing 6.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Quadro K5000 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560, and so the Quadro K5000 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560.

The Quadro K5000 has 3072 MB more video memory than the GTX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro K5000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro K5000 has 41.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro K5000 is noticeably better than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition has 336 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro K5000 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 is 605 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro K5000 is 1084. The Quadro K5000 having 479 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro K5000 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560.

The Quadro K5000 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560. This means that the Quadro K5000 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560.

The GeForce GTX 560 Club3D CoolStream Super OC 1GB Edition requires 176 Watts to run and the Quadro K5000 requires 122 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 560 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Quadro K5000. The GTX 560 requires 54 Watts more than the Quadro K5000 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro K5000.

Benchmarks Indicate a 7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 560.
Quadro K5000 is a high-end professional card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.

It's based on the Kepler GK104 GPU and offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 706MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 11350MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 512KB and a rated board TDP of 122 Watts.

Despite exhibiting similarities to GeForce GTX 680, due to being under-clocked and because Quadro K5000's drivers are only certified for professional applications only, its gaming performance is similar to GeForce GTX 760.
