We were blessed to borrow a Quadro FX 5600 from AppleMacanix. Though we know this is optimized for particular Pro 3D apps like Maya, we thought it would be interesting to run it through our series of 3D Game tests. It was slightly faster than than the GeForce 8800 GT running our six 3D accelerated games. In another session, we performed a RAM Preview render on 15 Motion 3 templates. The Quadro FX 5600 (and GeForce 8800 GT) were slower than the Radeon HD 2600 XT in 14 out of 15 tests. The Radeon X1900 XT beat the nVidia cards rendering all 15 templates. Tomorrow we will post results on our Windows Vista 64 tests (Prey, Doom 3, 3DMark06, etc.). As a preview, the Quadro was faster than the Radeon HD 2600 XT but slower than the GeForce 8800 GT running Prey and Doom 3. In the 3DMark06 benchmark the Quadro was faster than the GeForce 8800 GT. In our posting, we will include results for the GeForce 8800 GTX and Radeon HD 3870 X2 -- both of which smoke the Quadro.
