In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 2800M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro FX 2800M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the Quadro FX 2800M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro FX 2800M has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800M GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 2800M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 2800M has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9800M GT, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 2800M is slightly better than the GeForce 9800M GT.

Both the Quadro FX 2800M and the GeForce 9800M GT have 96 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce 9800M GT is 120 and by the Quadro FX 2800M is 120. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Quadro FX 2800M requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The Quadro FX 2800M requires 10 Watts more than the GeForce 9800M GT to run.
