High-End Workstation Graphics Shootout - AMD FireGL V8650 Vs. NVIDIA QuadroFX 5600

SPEC ViewPerf 10

Higher Numbers Are Better





Our first set of Viewperf 10 numbers look fairly mixed between our three high-end cards.  For these tests, the extra memory capacities of these cards don’t make a huge difference, as seen by the architecturally similar V7600 and V8650 pushing very similar numbers.

The QuadroFX 5600 puts up solid results, especially in Catia, where it has a solid lead over the ATI cards.   ATI’s FireGL V8650 does put up the best performance in the all-important Maya benchmark, which coincides with the Maya benchmarks we ran prior.
