NVIDIA Quadro FX 360M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M vs NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M
NVIDIA Quadro FX 360M► remove from comparison
For CAD and professional applications certified GPU based on the 8400M GS. The higher power consumption of 17 Watt versus 11 Watt of the 8400M GS indicates a higher performance.
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500M► remove from comparison
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).
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.
