Firingsquad heeft een korte preview rondom de nVidia Quadro gebouwd. Hier een stukje over de verwachten performance van deze professionele GeForce variant:
Well, according to Derek, the Quadro will actually outperform an equivalently spec'ed GeForce 256 board at any given 3D game, which makes sense based on the higher clock speed of the graphics core. The workstation-specific enhancements for Quadro won't make a difference in most general 3D apps or games, and whether they'll be implemented as a side-benefit depends on how much volume is shipped.
For high end applications, Nvidia touts the Quadro to be anywhere from 2 to 4 times faster than an equivalent GeForce. I suspect however that this is taking into account all of the subtle hardware-accelerated features of Quadro that are not implemented on GeForce, such as using anti-aliased lines and wireframes, 2-sided lighting, and shared back-buffering. With these features turned off, the benefit of Quadro would merely be in its additional 10MHz core.
