Nvidia RTX Quadro 8000 vs GeForce 3090Ti Benchmark – Can you game on a Quadro?

In this article, we tested the Nvidia RTX Quadro 8000 vs Geforce 3090ti GPU performance to see which is better for gaming and answer the question, can you game on a Quadro?

Before the latest and fastest GPU Nvidia, RTX 3090ti, came to the market; we saw the release of the RTX Quadro 8000 GPU in the market by Nvidia. This particular GPU of Nvidia holds a massive amount of 48GB of video memory with an old blower-style air cooler system. Buyers of this specific GPU don’t use this hardware for gaming purposes. Nvidia has made this video card specifically for developers based on VFX, animations, or computers meant to perform complex scientific calculations.

So we decided to test this graphics card to see how much performance it can deliver for gaming purposes. To make comparisons, we also used the fastest Gaming Graphics card from Nvidia, GeForce RTX 3090Ti. The Quadro card has the same electronic architecture and mechanism as a gaming GPU. But can it give good gaming performance? Let’s check it out.

So without further delay, let’s check out our experiment of Quadro 8000 vs Geforce 3090ti Nvidia GPUs.

Quadro 8000 vs GeForce 3090ti Final Verdict

The above chart shows that the Quadro fails to deliver good gaming performance even with a massive 48GB video memory. The primary reason behind this is that the RTX 3090Ti is a Gaming Graphics card while the Quadro 8000 is a workstation-level graphics card. Also, it does not support dedicated gaming drivers released by Nivida. Instead, the Quadro uses the RTX Studio drivers. With a tag of “48Gb video memory”, ordinary people would think that Quadro 8000 will be the best for gaming, but it is not so.

The 48GB high bandwidth memory is used for workstation-level purposes like making complicated animations, professional design (CAD), computer-generated imagery applications, different digital content creation applications, complex scientific calculations and machine learning. So our suggestion, if you want to use GPU for gaming, then go for Nvidia GeForce 3090Ti. And if you are looking for a high-end workstation GPU, then there is nothing better than an Nvidia Quadro 8000.

So this was all about Quadro 8000 vs GeForce 3090ti Nvidia RTX GPU. If you feel we have missed out on anything, let us know in the comments below.
