    It's the firmware more than anything I think. From what I've read, Quadros are far better at rendering quickly and displaying models in AutoCad ect. It's definitely possible to use consumer cards for the same job, but you'll have better results doing professional applications on a quadro than on it's equivalent GeForce and you'll have better results playing games on a geforce than it's equivalent quadro.

    There are some hardware differences, quite minor. Remember - don't compare a Quadro 880M to a Geforce GTX 880M - the Quadro is a DX10.1 part and is much older.

    It's possible to convert some GeForce GTX cards into Quadro's too.

    Very true, it's about three years old now.
