In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro 3000M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro 3000M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the Quadro 3000M 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 3000M has 1536 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 3000M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro 3000M has 28.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 9800M GT, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro 3000M is slightly better than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro 3000M has 240 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro 3000M is 108 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The GeForce 9800M GT having 12 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro 3000M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Quadro 3000M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the Quadro 3000M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro 3000M requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The Quadro 3000M requires 10 Watts more than the GeForce 9800M GT to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro 3000M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 9800M GT.
