In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro Plex 7000 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTS 240.

The GeForce GTS 240 has a 101 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro Plex 7000, but the Quadro Plex 7000 has 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTS 240. As a result, the Quadro Plex 7000 exhibits a 35.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTS 240. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTS 240 has a 101 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro Plex 7000, but the Quadro Plex 7000 has 80 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTS 240. As a result, the Quadro Plex 7000 exhibits a 44.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GTS 240. 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 a year more recently than the GeForce GTS 240, and so the Quadro Plex 7000 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTS 240.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 11264 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTS 240, 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 217.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTS 240, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is massively better than the GeForce GTS 240.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTS 240 has 112. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is 1176 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTS 240 is 189. The Quadro Plex 7000 having 987 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 GTS 240.

The Quadro Plex 7000 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTS 240. This means that the Quadro Plex 7000 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTS 240.

The Quadro Plex 7000 requires 600 Watts to run and the GeForce GTS 240 requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 900 Watts for the Quadro Plex 7000 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GeForce GTS 240. The Quadro Plex 7000 requires 480 Watts more than the GeForce GTS 240 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 GTS 240.

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.
Overview
GeForce GTS 240 is an OEM only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed G92B which has 7 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 112 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 675MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1100MHz.

Features
DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and it requires at least one 6-pin available connector.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a GeForce 9800 GT, meaning it is much faster than GeForc GT 240.
