In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro 2000M are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 8610G.

The Quadro 2000M has a 17 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 8610G. This results in the Quadro 2000M providing 4.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Quadro 2000M has a 17 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 8610G. This results in the Quadro 2000M providing 4.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon HD 8610G was released over a year more recently than the Quadro 2000M, and so the Radeon HD 8610G is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro 2000M.

The Quadro 2000M has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8610G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8610G has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro 2000M has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8610G is 240 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro 2000M is 211. The Radeon HD 8610G having 29 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro 2000M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8610G transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro 2000M. This means that the Radeon HD 8610G is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro 2000M.

The Radeon HD 8610G requires 25 Watts to run and the Quadro 2000M requires 55 Watts. The Quadro 2000M requires 30 Watts more than the Radeon HD 8610G to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro 2000M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon HD 8610G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8610G is an integrated mobile GPU, first seen on the ultra low-voltage APU A10-5745M, based on the 32nm, Terascale 3 architecture.
It offer 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a DDR3 memory interface of either a 128-bit bus width, if the laptop system RAM's is dual-channelled, or a 64-bit bus width, if not. The central units runs at 533MHz and goes up to 626MHz, in Turbo Mode. The memory clock can operate up to 667MHz, as the max memory supported by the CPU is DDR3-1333.
Its performance depends heavily on whether or not the memory is dual-channelled. Benchmarks put its performance on level with today's middle-class GPUs such as GeForce GT 540M-GeForce GT 630M or Radeon HD 7650M/7670M. Therefore, modern demanding games can be played with medium detail.
Quadro 2000M is a Professional Mobile Graphics Card based on the Fermi Architecture.

The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106-N12P-Q3 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 550MHz.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it is suited for Average Sized Laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance identical to GeForce GT 555M

System Suggestions
We recommend a Performance Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
