Lower Times Are Better

In this particular test, we see the FirePro V8700 offering huge performance increases in GPGPU performance compared to the previous generation chip. We're talking about 3x the performance level of a card which is still more expensive on the open market (V8650). The FirePro V8700 shifts the balance of power in this particular test over to ATI, as Nvidia's monster QuadroFX 5600 card can't keep up (Note : Nvidia's new Quadro cards are currently in testing).
