In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 EVGA FTW Hydro Copper 2 1.5GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro Plex 7000.

The GTX 580 has a 276 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro Plex 7000, but the Quadro Plex 7000 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 580. As a result, the Quadro Plex 7000 exhibits a 19.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 580. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 580 has a 276 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro Plex 7000, but the Quadro Plex 7000 has 48 more Render Output Units than the GTX 580. As a result, the Quadro Plex 7000 exhibits a 14.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 580. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Quadro Plex 7000 was released less than a year after the GTX 580, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 10752 MB more video memory than the GTX 580, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro Plex 7000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 86.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 580, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is much better than the GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX 580 EVGA FTW Hydro Copper 2 1.5GB Edition has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro Plex 7000 has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 580 is 870 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is 1176. The Quadro Plex 7000 having 306 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro Plex 7000 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX 580 EVGA FTW Hydro Copper 2 1.5GB Edition requires 244 Watts to run and the Quadro Plex 7000 requires 600 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 580 and a PSU with at least 900 Watts for the Quadro Plex 7000. The Quadro Plex 7000 requires 356 Watts more than the GTX 580 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro Plex 7000 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 580.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 580.
Quadro Plex 7000 is an enthusiast professional card based on the 40nm, Fermi architecture.

It's based on 2 Fermi GF100 GPUs and thus offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 96 ROPs, on a 768-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 574MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 750MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 1536KB and a rated board TDP of 600 Watts.

Despite exhibiting similarities to GeForce GTX 590, due to being under-clocked and because Quadro Plex 7000's drivers are only certified for professional applications only, its gaming performance is up to 10% slower than GeForce GTX 590.
