In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro 6000.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 354 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Quadro 6000. This results in the GTX 650 Ti providing 27.3 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 GTX 650 Ti has a 354 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro 6000, but the Quadro 6000 has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the Quadro 6000 exhibits a 12.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 650 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 650 Ti was released over a year more recently than the Quadro 6000, and so the GTX 650 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro 6000.

The Quadro 6000 has 5120 MB more video memory than the GTX 650 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro 6000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro 6000 has 57 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro 6000 is much better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition has 768 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro 6000 has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 713 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro 6000 is 514. The GTX 650 Ti having 199 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro 6000 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 650 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro 6000. This means that the GTX 650 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro 6000. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GTX 650 Ti should consume less power than the Quadro 6000.

The Quadro 6000 requires 204 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 650 Ti. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the Quadro 6000, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the GTX 650 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class.
This edition has no new features and so it performs exactly like the reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti.
Quadro 6000 is a high-end professional card based on the 40nm, Fermi architecture.

It's based on the Fermi GF100 GPU and thus offers 448 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 48 ROPs, on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 574MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 747MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 768KB and a rated board TDP of 204 Watts.

Despite exhibiting similarities to GeForce GTX 470, due to being under-clocked and because Quadro 6000's drivers are only certified for professional applications only, its gaming performance is up to 10% slower than GeForce GTX 470.
