NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M vs NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M vs NVIDIA Quadro NVS 320M

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M

► remove NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M

The Nvidia Quadro NVS 150M is a business graphics adapater for notebooks. It is based on the GeForce 9300M GS consumer graphics card but features special drivers which are optimized for business applications. A short 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 9300M 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 150M, the 160M features a higher clock speed and supports higher resolutions up to 1920x1200 (digital) or 2048x1536 (analog).

As the 9300M GS, the Quadro NVS 160M also supports PureVideo HD to decode HD videos with the graphics chip (and save current).

The NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M is a business entry-level graphics card for laptop. It is based on the GeForce 8500M GT consumer graphics card and designed for the business sector providing enhanced compatibility and stability. Regarding performance it should be comparable to a 8400M GT, but, might rate a little lower, because of the drivers that emphasize on stability.  Therefore, the NVS 140M provides only entry-level 3D performance.

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 320M

► remove NVIDIA Quadro NVS 320M

DirectX 10 medium class business graphic card, which is optimized for compatibility and stability. The graphic card seems to have the same core like the 8700M series and therefore shows good performance data.

A particularity of the graphic card are the "Unified Shaders". There don't exist any more dedicated pixel- and vertex shaders but 16 so called Stream processors maintain the upcomming graphic work (which was done by the pixel and vertex Shaders, up to now).

The memory clock of the Quadro NVS 320M depends on the implemented memory type: 400 MHz with GDDR2 and 700 MHz with GDDR3.
