Big companies ("big" managers) think big. They think a few new stupid features are gonna make them more customers/profit than optimizing their existing program. All programs that have been bought by a big company suffer like this. I didn't test the scene on my computers but from what I can see looking at these benches is that it's a bad scene. It not so much a bad scene as much as Maya lack optimizations and your CPU and HDD make a larger impact on your frame rate than your graphic card does. Trust me in a regular scene (where you aren't bottlenecked by CPU/HDD/lack of optimization) a real/modded quadro (no difference in Maya from what I have seen untill now) is at least 2-3 times faster than a regular geforce or a real/modded firegl.
