Mid-Range Workstation GPU Shootout : FireGL V5600 vs. QuadroFX 1700 vs. FireGL V3600

Spec ViewPerf 10 (Continued)

Workstation OpenGL Performance
Higher Numbers Are Better

The rest of the Viewperf suite shows ATI’s mid-range cards in a much better light, as they win three of the four tests.  SW, Twx, and Ugnx all run faster on ATI’s FireGL V5600 hardware as opposed to the QuadroFX 1700.  In fact, the QuadroFX 1700 takes a thorough beating in these tests, as ATI’s budget-level V3600 card manages to outpace it as well, with a price tag which is half that of the QFX1700.     The only saving grace is ProEngineer, which runs quite well on the QuadroFX 1700 card, besting all ATI cards we tested against.
