DirectX 9 Modeling / Texturing Performance
Lower Times Are Better


OpenGL Modeling / Texturing Performance
Higher Scores Are Better


In our first set of 3D modeling application benchmarks, the QuadroFX 4800 scores moderately well. The card shows performance roughly on par (albeit slightly slower) compared to the QuadroFX 5600 card in 3D Studio Max 2008, while delivering about a 10% boost in Cinebench performance. Cinebench doesn't seem to tap the extra horsepower which the QuadroFX 4800 has compared to the fairly new QuadroFX 3700 card, although both of NVIDIA's new cards show solid improvements over prior generations.
