In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro K4200 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition.

The GTX 650 Ti has a 222 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro K4200, but the Quadro K4200 has 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the Quadro K4200 exhibits a 19.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 650 Ti. 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 222 MHz higher core clock speed than the Quadro K4200, but the Quadro K4200 has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 650 Ti. As a result, the Quadro K4200 exhibits a 7.8 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 Quadro K4200 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 650 Ti, and so the Quadro K4200 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 650 Ti.

The Quadro K4200 has 3072 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 K4200 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro K4200 has 86.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro K4200 is much better than the GTX 650 Ti.

The Quadro K4200 has 1344 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro K4200 is 949 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 650 Ti is 713. The Quadro K4200 having 236 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro K4200 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 650 Ti.

The Quadro K4200 requires 108 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Gainward 1GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Quadro K4200.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro K4200 is a high-end professional card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.

It's based on the Kepler GK107 and offers 1344 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 706MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 1350MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 512KB and a rated board TDP of 108 Watts.

Quadro K4200's drivers are certified for professional applications only. Its gaming performance is around 10% slower than GeForce GTX 660.
GeForce 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.
