NVIDIA Quadro NVS 150M vs NVIDIA Quadro NVS 300M
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 150M► remove
The Nvidia Quadro NVS 150M is a business graphics adapater for notebooks. It is based on the GeForce 9200M GS consumer graphics card but features special drivers which are optimized for business applications. A shor list of the applications which are certified for the NVS line can be found here (including MS Office, Exceed, Notes, McAffee, pcAnywhere, Bloomberg, Reuters, Tradestation).
The gaming performance should be similar to the GeForce 9200M GS and therefore only suited for less demanding games with low details. Still the business drivers are not optimized for games and may therefore show a worse performance (or some bugs). The memory is clocked either with 700 MHz (DDR3) or 400 MHz (DDR2) which is noticable slower.
Compared to the Quadro NVS 160M, the 150M features a slower clock speed and only supports resolutions up to 1680x1050 (digital) or 1600x1200 (analog).
As the 9200M GS, the Quadro NVS 150M also supports PureVideo HD to decode HD videos with the graphics chip (and save current).

The NVIDIA GeForce Go 300M business graphic card based on the GeForce Go 7600 for laptops and is optimized (by drivers and Bios) for business tasks. Stability and reliability are focussed. The performance ought to be similar (slightly below) the GeForce Go 7600.
