In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro M4000 are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M.

The FirePro M4000 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 3700M, and so the FirePro M4000 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 FirePro M4000 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. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro M4000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro M4000 has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 3700M, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro M4000 is slightly better than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The FirePro M4000 has 512 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700M has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro M4000 is 200 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is 70. The FirePro M4000 having 130 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro M4000 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The FirePro M4000 transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 3700M. This means that the FirePro M4000 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 3700M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the FirePro M4000 should consume less power than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The FirePro M4000 requires 33 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700M requires 75 Watts. The Quadro FX 3700M requires 42 Watts more than the FirePro M4000 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 FirePro M4000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewFirePro M4000 is a Professional Graphics Card based on the 28nm GCN architecture.
It's based on the Cape Verde PRO Core (same used on 7750M & 7750) and therefore offers 512 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs on a 128-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 600MHz while the memory clock operates at 1000MHZ.
Compared to Radeon HD 7750M, its central unit is slightly higher clocked but overall its gaming performance is identical to Radeon HD 7750M because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro M4000 is made for professional applications.
The QuadroŽ 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.
