Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Competitors of FirePro V7800 from NVIDIA

We believe that the nearest equivalent to FirePro V7800 from NVIDIA is Quadro K4200.

Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to FirePro V7800:

Advantages of NVIDIA GRID A100B

Much newer (14 May 2020 vs 26 April 2010)

Wider memory bus (6144 vs 256 bit)

More pipelines (6912 vs 1440)

Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 40 nm)

Advantages of ATI FirePro V7800

Higher memory bandwidth (128 vs 1 GB/s)

Lower power consumption (150W vs 400W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
