NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M► remove from comparison
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M is the version of 7900 GS video card for notebooks, which is optimized for CAD and professional 3D-applications. Technically, it has the same or similar chip (G71 architecture), but with other Bios and support for professional drivers.
The gaming performance is clearly worse than the 7900 GS (because of the application optimizing). Nonetheless, the most modded drivers can be used, so the Quadro FX 1500M is more a 7900 GS (for the operating system).

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500M was the top professional graphic solution for the mobile use in 2007. The Quadro FX 3500M is especially suitable for CAD, digital image-, video editing and scientifical visualizations (according NVIDIA). It is based upon the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950GTX. Therefore also a good gaming performance can be expected (for 2007 and if modded drivers are used). The card is shipped with certified drivers for professional applications, which are not optimized for games (inofficially the manual installation of Forceware drivers should be possible).
The drivers of the Quadro FX series are certified for CAD applications (e.g. AutoCad, Inventor, Solidstation, Solud Edge, ...) and DCC applictions (e.g. Maya, 3DS Max, Lightwave 3D, ...) and offers a 12-Bit precision for Subpixel, full image Antialiasing, hardware accelerated Antialiasing for dots and lines and additional optimized settings, which are optimized for CAD and DCC.
Nvidia describes the 3000 series as a power package for big laptops and data structures.
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M► remove from comparison
This is a highend workstation graphic chip (for CAD and 3D programs optimized) with DirectX 10 and good OpenGL support - probably based on the GeForce 8700M GT graphic card. It is intended for digital content creators, engineers, earthscientists and other professional 3D applications. Certified drivers grant thecorrect and faster (compared to 8700M) representation of professional programs (CAD, CCD, visualisation software).
