NVIDIA Quadro FX 2500M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M
NVIDIA Quadro FX 2500M► remove
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.

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.

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M is a mobile workstation graphics card for high-end laptops. It is based on the Geforce 9800M GT / G92 core but features a higher clock rate and is produced in a 55nm fabrication process versus 65nm of the 9800M GT.
The Quadro FX series of cards are optimized for professional applications like CAD or DCC. OpenGL performance especially should be noticeably better compared to consumer GeForce cards.
The Quadro FX2800M is found in mobile workstations like the Dell M6500 and supports DirectX 10.0 and OpenGL 2.1. In the Dell laptops, the card is able to output up to two displays simultaneously (DisplayPort up to 2560x1600, DVI/HDMI up to 1920x1200). Dell claims a thermal power draw of 65 Watts while Nvidia rates the GPU at 75 Watt TDP.
Due to the relatively high power consumption of 65 to 75 Watts (TDP) and a 10 Watt idle mode, the Quadro FX 2800M is normally only foud in medium to large laptops with powerful cooling solutions.
