NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M

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 880M

► remove from comparison NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M is a professional middle class graphics card for mobile workstations (about 15"). It is based on the GeForce GT 330M graphics card with slower clock rates and therefore is a DirectX 10.1 chip that is produced in 40nm. 

Due to a special BIOS and professional drivers, the FX 880M should perform noticeably better than a 330M in professional applications (like CAD, DCC, Rendering). Another advantage for professional users are the certified drivers that should ensure a bug free experience with the most common professional applications. Futhermore, the Quadro FX drivers contain profiles for these applications to ensure the best settings (similar to the game profiles in GeForce cards).

The Quadro FX 880M is also based on the GT216 core in 40nm. The shaders are based on the desktop GTX 200 architecture and therefore a bit improved compared to the previous generation cards.

Without load, the Quadro FX 880M is able to downclock to 135 / 270 / 135 MHz (chip / shader / memory clock).

The gaming performance of the FX 880M should be beyond the GT 330M, because of the different drivers. Gamers should choose a GeForce card because of the better game support.

The chip supports Optimus for automatic switching between dedicated and integrated graphics card (e.g. in the new Core i5 CPUs). Still Optimus was for example not integrated in the Lenovo Thinkpad W510.
