In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3770S are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 560.

The HD i7 3770S was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 560, and so the HD i7 3770S is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 560 when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 560 has 128 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3770S does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3770S has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 560 has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3770S is 74 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 560 is 4. The HD i7 3770S having 70 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD i7 3770S delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 560.

The HD i7 3770S requires 77 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 560 requires 30 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S. The HD i7 3770S requires 47 Watts more than the Quadro FX 560 to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD i7 3770S may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Quadro FX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD i7 3770S is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop that is Integrated in the Core i7-3770S Processor.

The Central Unit Initially Runs at 650MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Frame Buffer: Up to 1.7GB.

Memory Channel: 64-bit Or 128-bit.

Memory Clock: Up to 800MHz.

Memory Bandwidth: It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Gaming Benchmarks Indicate its Performance is Similar to of a Dedicated GeForce GT 620.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD i7 3770S.
Quadro FX 560 is a professional Graphics Card with driver support for professional applications.
It's based on the G73 architecture (GL Core) and offers 12 Pixel Shaders, on a 128-bit memory interface of GDDR3.
It's related to desktop GeForce 7600 GT but should offer performance similar (though worse) to GeForce 7600 GS, due to the similarities.
