In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro 5000.

The GeForce GTX 780 has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 148 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro 5000. This results in the GeForce GTX 780 providing 143.1 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 GeForce GTX 780 has a 350 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the Quadro 5000. This results in the GeForce GTX 780 providing 20.9 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 GeForce GTX 780 was released over a year more recently than the Quadro 5000, and so the GeForce GTX 780 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro 5000.

The GeForce GTX 780 has 512 MB more video memory than the Quadro 5000, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 780 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 780 has 168.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro 5000, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 780 is massively better than the Quadro 5000.

The GeForce GTX 780 has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro 5000 has 352. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 780 is 2078 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro 5000 is 361. The GeForce GTX 780 having 1717 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 780 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro 5000.

The GeForce GTX 780 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro 5000. This means that the GeForce GTX 780 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro 5000.

The GeForce GTX 780 requires 250 Watts to run and the Quadro 5000 requires 152 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GeForce GTX 780 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Quadro 5000. The GeForce GTX 780 requires 98 Watts more than the Quadro 5000 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 780 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro 5000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 780 is a high-end graphics-card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
It's based on the Kepler GK110 Core (same used on Titan) but with 12 SMX activated and therefore offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 863MHz and goes up to 902MHz in Turbo, the memory clock operates at 1502MHz. It consumes up to 250W.
Benchmarks indicate that its performance is up to 30% better than previous GeForce GTX 680 and thus allows even the most demanding games to be playable at the highest settings, at 1080p. With proper overclocking and cooling, it can surpass GeForce GTX Titan.
Quadro 5000 is a high-end professional card based on the 40nm, Fermi architecture.

It's based on the Fermi GF100-850-A3 GPU and thus offers 352 Shader Processing Units, 44 TMUs and 40 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 513MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 750MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 512KB and a rated board TDP of 152 Watts.

Despite exhibiting similarities to GeForce GTX 560 Ti OEM, due to being under-clocked and because Quadro 5000's drivers are only certified for professional applications only, its gaming performance is up to 10% slower than GeForce GTX 560.
