In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3770S are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 5500.

The HD i7 3770S was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5500, 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 5500 when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 5500 has 1024 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 5500 has 8. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3770S is 74 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5500 is 6. The HD i7 3770S having 68 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5500 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i7 3770S requires 77 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5500 requires 96 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the HD i7 3770S and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the Quadro FX 5500. The Quadro FX 5500 requires 19 Watts more than the HD i7 3770S to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro FX 5500 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the HD i7 3770S.

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.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
