There is a workstation version based on the G8- core with the same name I also believe.

wrong. it's a high end workstation card. It's more "optimized" for 3d rendering and CAd stuff than regular desktop cards.

i still dont understand the price diff, what is it about this card that makes is better at rendering then an ultra . the ultra has higher specs in every aspect across the board, ok maby the 768 vs 1 g mem , but then you could say asus 1 gig mem 8800gt still has higher specs across the board , i dont get it
sorry for may ignorance but id like to understand

With the Quadro / FireGL cards you pay for the following:

Optimized drivers that are tested and certified with mainstream 3D applications.

Full OpenGL hardware support.

Access to Nvidia / ATI engineers should you experience issues using a certified setup.

Certain features such as hardware overlay planes are only available in the workstation cards.


That said with more developers like Autodesk dropping OpenGL in favour of DirectX, gaming cards are becoming more popular within the industry, my new workstation has a 8800GT for example.

Some apps such as ProE, Catia etc are still entrenched with OpenGL, for these apps workstation class cards are still a must have.
