NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 370M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M

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 370M

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro FX 370M

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 370M is an entry level graphics card for mobile workstations (laptops). It is based on the same core as the Quadro NVS 160M and the GeForce 9200M / 9300M GS. The drivers are optimized for OpenGL applications and professional 3D applications like CAD, DCC, and visualization applications. Furthermore, the drivers are certified to work with the most popular apps without problems.

The gaming performance is a bit below the similar 9200M / 9300M chip because of the professional drivers and therefore the GPU is only capable of displaying low end games fluently. Modern intensive 3D games wont run fluently or only with very low detail settings.

As the 9300M series, the Quadro FX 370M supports PureVideo HD to decode (HD) videos in the GPU.

The performance of the chip also depends on the used graphics memory. Either fast GDDR3 memory (clocked at 700 MHz) or slow GDDR2 (with 400MHz) can be used by the laptop manufacturer.

In the Dell Precision M2400, only GDDR2 graphics memory is used, leading to a slow performance (e.g. Doom3 - ultra 40fps). According to Dell the graphics card needs 20 Watt.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M

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).
