Default Re: Why is FX5700 so much slower than older Quadro?

isn't the simple answer one is a professional graphics card and the other is a consumer graphics card. yes i know a 5700 is faster than a 4600 but isn't that difference pretty minimal and any benefit seen in the architecture change will be offset by the fact that nvidia enables certain functions on it's cad/professional cards to make them run faster in cad type software.

now that i look at it. i think einstein is correct. they difference shoudl in no way be that much. check/reinstall your chipset drivers.
