► remove 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.

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.
