In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 GTX.

The Quadro FX 1600M was released over a year more recently than the Go 7800, and so the Quadro FX 1600M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Go 7800.

The Quadro FX 1600M and the GeForce Go 7800 GTX have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Go 7800 has 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 1600M, which means that the memory performance of the Go 7800 is marginally better than the Quadro FX 1600M.

Both the Quadro FX 1600M and the GeForce Go 7800 GTX have 0 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts to run and the GeForce Go 7800 GTX requires 65 Watts. The Go 7800 requires 15 Watts more than the Quadro FX 1600M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Go 7800 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro FX 1600M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe 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.GeForce Go 7800 GTX is a high-end-class level GPU.
It can use up to 512MB of dedicated video memory, and it's only available with a DDR3 memory type + a 256 bits Memory Bus Width.
Due to its features and unlike the previous GeForce Go models, it should be able to play today's games, that use DirectX 9 (e.g. Sims 3, Anno 1404 and even Crysis) at the lowest settings.
