NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M

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).

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M is a mobile workstation graphics card for high end laptops. It is based on the Geforce GTX 280M core (G92 core) and features 128 CUDA cores (unified shaders).

Compared to the Quadro FX 3700M, the Quadro FX 3800M features a higher clock speed and is manufacturered in 55nm (compared to 65nm of the 3700M). In fact, the FX3800M is clocked even higher than the consumer GeForce GTX 280M and performs notably better as a result.

The Quadro FX series of cards are optimized for professional applications like CAD or DCC. Notably, OpenGL performance should be much improved compared to  consumer GeForce cards of similar specifications.

At the time its announcement (December 2009), the FX 3800M was the fastest workstation graphics card for laptops.
