In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3-way SLI are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro M4000.

The GTX 660 Ti has a 142 MHz higher core clock speed and 232 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro M4000. This results in the GTX 660 Ti providing 227 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 660 Ti has a 142 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the Quadro M4000. This results in the GTX 660 Ti providing 22.6 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 M4000 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 660 Ti, and so the Quadro M4000 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 660 Ti.

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 M4000 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 660 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 660 Ti has superior memory performance.

The GTX 660 Ti has 240.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro M4000, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 660 Ti is massively better than the Quadro M4000.

The Quadro M4000 has 1664 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3-way SLI has 4032. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro M4000 is 1736 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 660 Ti is 3951. The GTX 660 Ti having 2215 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 660 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro M4000.

The Quadro M4000 requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3-way SLI requires 450 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro M4000. The GTX 660 Ti requires 330 Watts more than the Quadro M4000 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 660 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro M4000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Quadro M4000 is a Professional Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Quadro M4000 Features a GPU Codenamed GM204-200-A1 which is a Second Gen Maxwell GPU and was used on the GeForce GTX 970.
It has 13 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 1664 Shader Processing Units, 104 TMUs and 56 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 773MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 192+64 bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1502MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and one available 6-pin connector.

Quadro M4000 is underclocked when compared to GeForce GTX 970 and does not benefit from the GeForce Driver Optimizations.
As a result, Quadro M4000's Performance stands somewhere between GeForce GTX 960 & GeForce GTX 970.

System Suggestions
Quadro M4000 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3-way SLI is a solution of three GeForce GTX 660 Ti put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 660 Ti to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to X% better than a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti. Expect this combination to draw up to 450 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
