NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M
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.

The Quadro FX 770M is a professional midrange graphics adapter for laptops / mobile workstations. The GPU is optimized for professional 2D and 3D applications like CAD, DCC, and visualization software. The FX770M solutions contains certified graphics drivers for the most popular applications.
The GPU chip of the Quadro FX770M is based on the GeForce 9600M GT consumer card for notebooks. Therefore, the Quadro has the same features (like the PureVideo HD video-processor) as the 9600M GT.
The performance of the card should be compareable to the 9600M GT. Still some games may run slower, as the drivers are optimized for applications and OpenGL. Especially the OpenGL performance is way better than with an 9600M GT. The Cinebench R10 OpenGL test shows up to twize the performance with a FX 770M compared to a GeForce 9600M GT.
As all cards of the GeForce 9000M series, the 770M support CUDA.
