In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7640G are noticeably better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M.

The Radeon HD 7640G was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 1600M, and so the Radeon HD 7640G is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 1600M when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 1600M has 512 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 7640G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 7640G has 256 Shader Processing Units but the Quadro FX 1600M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 7640G transistor size technology is 48 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 1600M. This means that the Radeon HD 7640G is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 1600M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 7640G should consume less power than the Quadro FX 1600M.

The Radeon HD 7640G requires 35 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts. The Quadro FX 1600M requires 15 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7640G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro FX 1600M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 7640G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 7640G is an integrated GPU on the fast-middle-class Trinity CPUs.
It's based on the 32nm Terascale 3 architecture and offers 256 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The memory interface will depend on whether or not the laptop's system RAM is dual channelled (128-bit if so, 64-bit, if not) and the operating memory clock can be up to 800MHz (max speed supported by the CPU). The central unit runs at 496MHz and will go up to 685MHz in Turbo Mode. Expect a TDP of up to 35 Watt.
Its performance is slightly above Intel HD 4000 Graphics but below previous in series - Radeon HD 7620G, despite the naming, due to the lesser Shaders count which proves useful in most of today's modern games.
Some of today's modern games can be playable using the Medium preset though the low preset will have to suffice for most of them. Extremely demanding games (e.g. Crysis 3) are playable but with reduced frame rates.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
