In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 2GB are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 3700M, and so the GeForce 940MX 2GB 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 GeForce 940MX 2GB has 1024 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 3700M, 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 3700M has 35.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 940MX 2GB, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is noticeably better than the GeForce 940MX 2GB.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB has 384 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700M has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 940MX 2GB is 644 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is 70. The GeForce 940MX 2GB having 574 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 940MX 2GB delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 3700M. This means that the GeForce 940MX 2GB is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce 940MX 2GB requires 25 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700M requires 75 Watts. The Quadro FX 3700M requires 50 Watts more than the GeForce 940MX 2GB to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 3700M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce 940MX 2GB.
