In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro M4000.

The HD 7950 has a 27 MHz higher core clock speed and 232 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro M4000. This results in the HD 7950 providing 188.4 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 HD 7950 has a 27 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Render Output Units than the Quadro M4000. This results in the HD 7950 providing 33.5 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 three years more recently than the HD 7950, and so the Quadro M4000 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 7950 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 HD 7950 has 1024 MB more video memory than the Quadro M4000, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 7950 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 7950 has 527.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro M4000, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7950 is massively better than the Quadro M4000.

The Quadro M4000 has 1664 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire has 5376. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro M4000 is 1736 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7950 is 3656. The HD 7950 having 1920 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7950 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 Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire requires 540 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro M4000. The HD 7950 requires 420 Watts more than the Quadro M4000 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7950 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.

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.

GPU
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.

Performance
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.
Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire is a solution of three Radeon HD 7950 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 7950 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire 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 somewhat superior to a single Radeon HD 7990 performing by itself it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 7950. Expect this combination to draw up to 540 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
