In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel Iris i5 6260U are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M.

The Iris i5 6260U was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 3700M, and so the Iris i5 6260U 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 Quadro FX 3700M has 1024 MB video memory, but the Iris i5 6260U does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Iris i5 6260U has 48 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700M has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the Iris i5 6260U is 365 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is 70. The Iris i5 6260U having 295 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 3700M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Iris i5 6260U transistor size technology is 51 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 3700M. This means that the Iris i5 6260U is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 3700M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Iris i5 6260U should consume less power than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The Iris i5 6260U requires 15 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700M requires 75 Watts. The Quadro FX 3700M requires 60 Watts more than the Iris i5 6260U 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 Iris i5 6260U.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel Iris i5 6260U is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 540 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i5-6260U Processor..

Architecture
The Skylake Architecture succeeds the Broadwell Architecture and aims for increased CPU and Graphics Performance, within the same Power Requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4, as well as DDR4 Memory Support.
The GPU Codenamed GT3-E offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The Operating Memory Clock depends at which speed the System's RAM is running and which Memory Type is installed and is ultimately limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 933MHz for DDR3 and 1067MHz for DDR4.
Depending on whether or not the System's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit Memory Interface.
An addition to the Iris Graphics is the access to a L4 Cache of 64MB eDRAM which further increases the Memory Performance.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies according to the System. The GPU may reserve up to 1.7GB.

Performance
Because Performance depends heavily on the Memory Bandwidth, it may vary heavily from System to System.
Best Case Scenario, expect Performance Identical to a dedicated GeForce 830M.

System Suggestions
Iris i5 6260U is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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.
