Are they really that much better than regular GPUs to cost $4k?

What are they used for?

They aren't better or worse. They're used for completely different purposes.

Quadro and FireGL cards are primarily used in workstations for CAD and other things. I'm not an expert on them by any means, so someone else could probably give more information.
