In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 4800.

The GTX 560 Ti was released less than a year after the Quadro FX 4800, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 4800 has 256 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 560 Ti has superior memory performance.

The GTX 560 Ti has 44.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 4800, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is noticeably better than the Quadro FX 4800.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has 448 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 4800 has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 656 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 4800 is 116. The GTX 560 Ti having 540 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 4800.

The GTX 560 Ti transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 4800. This means that the GTX 560 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 4800.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 4800 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 4800. The GTX 560 Ti requires 60 Watts more than the Quadro FX 4800 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro FX 4800.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 270-A1 variant of the 40nm GF110 GPU of the Fermi architecture.
The 270-A1 variant of the GF110 Core comes with 14 SMx activated and thus offers 448 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has its central unit clocked at 732MHz and its memory clock operates at 950MHz - same as GeForce GTX 570.
Compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the rated board TDP is around 40W higher but its performance surpasses it largely, while some factory overclocked versions surpass GeForce GTX 570.
The Quadro® FX 4800 ultra-high-end solution gives geophysicists, designers, scientists, engineers, and other technical professionals visual computing from their desktops. Professional applications take advantage of the Quadro FX 4800 advanced feature set, including 1.5 GB of frame buffer, providing professionals the right set of tools to deliver results that push the realms of visualization.
