In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro Plex 7000 are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro 4000.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has a 99 MHz higher core clock speed and 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro 4000. This results in the Quadro Plex 7000 providing 58.3 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 99 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Render Output Units than the Quadro 4000. This results in the Quadro Plex 7000 providing 39.9 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 Quadro Plex 7000 was released less than a year after the Quadro 4000, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 10240 MB more video memory than the Quadro 4000, 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 198.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro 4000, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is massively better than the Quadro 4000.

The Quadro Plex 7000 has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro 4000 has 256. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro Plex 7000 is 1176 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro 4000 is 243. The Quadro Plex 7000 having 933 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 Quadro 4000.

The Quadro Plex 7000 requires 600 Watts to run and the Quadro 4000 requires 142 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 900 Watts for the Quadro Plex 7000 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Quadro 4000. The Quadro Plex 7000 requires 458 Watts more than the Quadro 4000 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 Quadro 4000.

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.
Quadro 4000 is a middle-class professional card based on the 40nm, Fermi architecture.

It's based on the Fermi GF100-100-KD GPU and thus offers 352 Shader Processing Units, 44 TMUs and 40 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 702MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 384KB and a rated board TDP of 142 Watts.

Despite exhibiting similarities to GeForce GTX 460, due to being under-clocked and because Quadro 4000's drivers are only certified for professional applications only, its gaming performance is up to 10% slower than GeForce GTS 450.
