In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 705M 1GB are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M.

The GeForce 705M 1GB was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 1600M, and so the GeForce 705M 1GB is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 1600M when running the latest games.

The GeForce 705M 1GB has 512 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 1600M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Quadro FX 1600M has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 705M 1GB, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1600M is slightly better than the GeForce 705M 1GB.

The GeForce 705M 1GB has 48 Shader Processing Units but the Quadro FX 1600M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 705M 1GB transistor size technology is 40 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 1600M. This means that the GeForce 705M 1GB is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 1600M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce 705M 1GB should consume less power than the Quadro FX 1600M.

The GeForce 705M 1GB requires 15 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts. The Quadro FX 1600M requires 35 Watts more than the GeForce 705M 1GB to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 1600M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 705M 1GB.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce 705M is a entry-level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.

GeForce 705M equips a GPU Codenamed GF119-B1 which is a Second Generation Fermi GPU.
Still built on 40nm Technology, it has 1 Stream Multiprocessor activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs.

The Speed of the Central Unit Varies from Laptop to Laptop. Usually, it is clocked at up to 775MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with DDR3 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 64-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 1GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 15W, it is suited for small laptops.

GeForce 705M is essentially a renamed GeForce 610M.
Therefore, AMD's and Intel's Recent Powerful Integrated Graphics are still more powerful.

System Suggestions
GeForce 705M is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Middle-Class Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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.
