In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 1000 are massively better than the AMD Radeon Xpress 1200 Series.

The Xpress 1200 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 1000, and so the Xpress 1200 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 1000 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Quadro FX 1000 has 128 MB video memory, but the Xpress 1200 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro FX 1000 has 2 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon Xpress 1200 Series has 4. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Quadro FX 1000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.ATI's 'R520' core (codenamed Fudo) is the foundation for a line of DirectX 9.0c and OpenGL 2.0 3D accelerator X1000 video cards. It is ATI's first major architectural overhaul since the 'R300' core and is highly optimized for Shader Model 3.0. The Radeon X1000 series using the core was introduced on October 5, 2005, and competed primarily against nVidia's GeForce 7000 series. ATI released the successor to the R500 series with the R600 series on May 14, 2007. ATI does not provide official support for any X1000 series cards for Windows 7
