NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 3600M

NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M

The Nvidia Quadro FX 2700M is a professional graphics card for laptops. It features certified drivers that are optimized for CAD (e.g., AutoCad, Inventor, Solidstation, Solid Edge, ..), DCC (e.g., Maya, 3DS Max, Lightwave 3D, ...), and visualization applications. The FX 2700M is based on the G94 core and therefore similar to the GeForce 9700M GTS.

The Quadro FX series of cards are optimized for professional applications like CAD or DCC. Especially the OpenGL performance should be noticeable better than with consumer GeForce cards. The certified drivers, that come with the Quadro cards guarantee a frictionless work with applications like AutoCad, Inventor, Solidstation, Maya, 3DS Max, Lightwave 3d and others. Furthermore they offer 12-Bit precision for subpixels, fullscreen anti-aliasing, hardware accelerated antialiasing for points and lines and other CAD and DCC optimizations.

 

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.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3600M

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro FX 3600M

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 3600M is a professional graphics card for CAD, DCC and other modeling applications based upon the 8800M GTX consumer card (G92 architecture). It was a high-end card at the time of announcement. Certified drivers grant error-free and faster performance in professional applications. The FX 3600M was later succeeded by the more efficient 55nm FX 2800M and FX 3800M, both of which still utilize the G92 architecture.

The most important aspect of the Quadro FX 3600M is its use "Unified Shaders". There no longer exist any dedicated pixel or vertex shaders. Instead, the FX 3600M uses 64 so-called stream processors to handle most of the graphics work previously processed by pixel and vertex shaders. Furthermore, the shader units are clocked higher than the GPU core (1250 MHz).

The performance of the FX 3600M shoul be higher than the 1600M due to the 256 bit wide memory bus and the high number of Unified Shaders. According to Nvidia, the GPU is best suited for modelling large 3D scenes and complex models.
