In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 380.

The Quadro FX 380 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 XT, and so the Quadro FX 380 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 XT when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Quadro FX 380 and the GeForce 6800 XT have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro FX 380 has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6800 XT, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 380 is slightly better than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The Quadro FX 380 has 16 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 380 is 7 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The Quadro FX 380 having 3 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro FX 380 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The Quadro FX 380 requires 34 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro FX 380.
