NVIDIA Quadro FX 2500M

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro FX 2500M

This is a professional video card for notebooks from NVidia It is based on 7900GTX.

The application performance is very good due to special professional drivers (3D rendering, CAD), but the gaming performance is weaker. With modded drivers, it should work like a 7900 GTX.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M

► remove from comparison

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.
