NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M
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).

The Nvidia Quadro FX 1700M is a professional graphics adapter for CAD and 3D applications. It is based on the G96 core (GeForce 9650M e.g.) but with different drivers, that are optimized for OpenGL and professional applications. The drivers are zertified to work flawlessly with different applications.
Compared to the Quadro FX 1600M, the FX 1700M GPU supports Powermizer 8.0.
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).
