In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro Plex 7000 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has a 61 MHz higher core clock speed and 104 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 8800 GTS. This results in the Quadro Plex 7000 providing 61.2 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 Quadro Plex 7000 has a 61 MHz higher core clock speed and 76 more Render Output Units than the GeForce 8800 GTS. This results in the Quadro Plex 7000 providing 44.8 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 Quadro Plex 7000 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 8800 GTS, and so the Quadro Plex 7000 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 8800 GTS when running the latest games.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 11968 MB more video memory than the GeForce 8800 GTS, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro Plex 7000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 224.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8800 GTS, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is massively better than the GeForce 8800 GTS.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 8800 GTS has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is 1176 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8800 GTS is 113. The Quadro Plex 7000 having 1063 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro Plex 7000 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8800 GTS.

The Quadro Plex 7000 transistor size technology is 50 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8800 GTS. This means that the Quadro Plex 7000 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8800 GTS.

The Quadro Plex 7000 requires 600 Watts to run and the GeForce 8800 GTS requires 143 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 900 Watts for the Quadro Plex 7000 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce 8800 GTS. The Quadro Plex 7000 requires 457 Watts more than the GeForce 8800 GTS to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro Plex 7000 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 8800 GTS.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro Plex 7000 is an enthusiast professional card based on the 40nm, Fermi architecture.

It's based on 2 Fermi GF100 GPUs and thus offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 96 ROPs, on a 768-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 574MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 750MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 1536KB and a rated board TDP of 600 Watts.

Despite exhibiting similarities to GeForce GTX 590, due to being under-clocked and because Quadro Plex 7000's drivers are only certified for professional applications only, its gaming performance is up to 10% slower than GeForce GTX 590.
GeForce 8800 GTS is a high-end GPU based on the 90nm variant of the first-shader unified architecture.
It's based on the G80 Core and offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 20 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of GDDR3. The central unit runs at 513MHz and the memory clock operates 792MHz. It will consume no more than 143 Watt.
Technically, next in series, when compared to GeForce 8800 GT, it performs worse as the amount of Shader Processing Units and TMUs was reduced and the GPU comes under-clocked, in exchange for a wider bus-width and extra video memory.
Today's modern demanding games can be played at medium (most) or high settings (some) smoothly. However, this GPU will perform poorly at 720p due to the limited video memory. DirectX 11 based games aren't supported.
