► remove NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M is a mobile workstation graphics card for high end laptops. It is based on the Geforce GTX 280M core (G92 core) and features 128 CUDA cores (unified shaders).

Compared to the Quadro FX 3700M, the Quadro FX 3800M features a higher clock speed and is manufacturered in 55nm (compared to 65nm of the 3700M). In fact, the FX3800M is clocked even higher than the consumer GeForce GTX 280M and performs notably better as a result.

The Quadro FX series of cards are optimized for professional applications like CAD or DCC. Notably, OpenGL performance should be much improved compared to  consumer GeForce cards of similar specifications.

At the time its announcement (December 2009), the FX 3800M was the fastest workstation graphics card for laptops.

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.
