Umm, your kidding right?? The Quadro will PLAY ANY GAME AT MAX GRAPHICS! Remember, when game makers make games using Quadros and FireGLs, they need to play test them as well. That QuadroFX4000 beats ANY card on the market except this one here!

Well, it is common misconception really. The reason people think that is because the workstation cards are good at on the fly rendering, not prerendering (like in games) but they excel at BOTH to be correct. They are just MUCH better at (on the fly) rendering then normal gmaing GPUs. However, the x850XT has a great "on the Fly" rendering engine, so it is a pretty good card for workstations. It keeps pace with the Quadro 3400 APG version with NPs.
