In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce 8400M G.

The Quadro FX 3700M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 8400M G, and so the Quadro FX 3700M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 8400M G.

The Quadro FX 3700M has 768 MB more video memory than the GeForce 8400M G, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 3700M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 3700M has 41.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 8400M G, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is noticeably better than the GeForce 8400M G.

The GeForce 8400M G has 8 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700M has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 8400M G is 3 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is 70. The Quadro FX 3700M having 67 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro FX 3700M delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 8400M G.

The Quadro FX 3700M transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 8400M G. This means that the Quadro FX 3700M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 8400M G.

The GeForce 8400M G requires 10 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700M requires 75 Watts. The Quadro FX 3700M requires 65 Watts more than the GeForce 8400M G to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 3700M may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 8400M G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 8400M G is an entry-class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games(e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) and even demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V)are most certainly unplayable. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, might be playable smoothly at the lowest settings.
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.
