NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M► remove
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 GeForce FX 3700M is a professional high-end workstation graphics card for laptops. It is manufactured in 65nm and is based on the G92 core with all 128 shaders enabled. The GPU is most comparable to the consumer GeForce GTX 280M with the largest difference being the manufacturing process (65nm of the 3700M vs 55nm of the 280M). The immediate successor to the 3700M is the Quadro FX 3800M, which is based on the GeForce GTX 285M but with higher clock rates and relatively similar power consumption demands.
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M► remove
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).
