In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 SLI are massively better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 4800.

The Quadro FX 4800 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 460, and so the Quadro FX 4800 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 460.

The GTX 460 has 512 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 4800, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 460 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 460 has 153.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 4800, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 460 is massively better than the Quadro FX 4800.

The GeForce GTX 460 SLI has 672 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 4800 has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 460 is 907 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 4800 is 116. The GTX 460 having 791 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 460 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 4800.

The GTX 460 transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 4800. This means that the GTX 460 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 4800.

The GeForce GTX 460 SLI requires 380 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 4800 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 460 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 4800. The GTX 460 requires 230 Watts more than the Quadro FX 4800 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 460 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro FX 4800.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 460 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 460 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may cause micro stuttering in FPS below 30. This means this combination might even perform worse than a single GTX 460.
The optimal performance it delivers is slightly better than a single GeForce GTX 480.
Therefore, this combination is sufficient for gaming at 1080p and most demanding games can be played at the highest settings.
The Quadro® FX 4800 ultra-high-end solution gives geophysicists, designers, scientists, engineers, and other technical professionals visual computing from their desktops. Professional applications take advantage of the Quadro FX 4800 advanced feature set, including 1.5 GB of frame buffer, providing professionals the right set of tools to deliver results that push the realms of visualization.
