In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 740M 64-bit Edition are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M.

The GT 740M was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 3700M, and so the GT 740M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 3700M when running the latest games.

The GT 740M has 1024 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 3700M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Quadro FX 3700M has 36.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 740M, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is noticeably better than the GT 740M.

The GeForce GT 740M 64-bit Edition has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700M has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 740M is 406 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is 70. The GT 740M having 336 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 3700M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GT 740M transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 3700M. This means that the GT 740M is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 3700M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 740M should consume less power than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce GT 740M 64-bit Edition requires 33 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700M requires 75 Watts. The Quadro FX 3700M requires 42 Watts more than the GT 740M to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 3700M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GT 740M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 740M v3 is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 980MHz and may reach up to 1058MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Kepler Boost 2.0, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 33W, it is suited for small laptops.

Performance
GeForce GT 740M v3 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 730M v2.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance stands somewhere between GeForce GT 640M & GeForce GT 645M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 740M v3.
The Quadro® FX 3700M high-end mobile workstation graphics solution with its revolutionary unified architecture, delivers 1 GB memory, excellent image quality, and optimized visual computing application performance pushing the limits of a 17" mobile workstation. The reference standard for OpenGL 2.1, DirectX 10, and Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 3700M enables next generation applications with new levels of interactivity to meet the demands of CAD engineers, graphics designers, and other technical design professionals.
