Professional graphics cards for performance workstations occupy a completely different market niche than the gaming solutions, even though they are manufactured by the same developers. Today we are going to check out the performance of these graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia in popular CAD/CAM systems for professionals. Especially since both manufacturers now have new card series on contemporary 55 nm chips: Quadro FX and FirePro.
Professional products are but seldom used for gaming, yet we decided to test them in the popular Futuremark 3DMark Vantage suite. It will give you a different view on the graphics cards.
You can see now that gaming load is greatly dissimilar to professional applications. The standings are completely different here because this test needs fast execution of shaders, which are almost never used in professional graphical applications, rather than quick rendering of triangles.
