In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5650 are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M.

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

The Radeon HD 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. This is supported by the fact that the Radeon HD also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the Mobility Radeon HD 5650 and the Quadro FX 1600M are the same, which means the Radeon HD and the Quadro FX 1600M have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon HD has 400 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 Radeon HD transistor size technology is 40 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 1600M. This means that the Radeon HD is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 1600M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD should consume less power than the Quadro FX 1600M.

The Mobility Radeon HD 5650 requires 15 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts. The Quadro FX 1600M requires 35 Watts more than the Radeon HD 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 Radeon HD.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewMobility Radeon HD 5650 is a middle-class GPU based on the 40nm, Terascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Madison LE Core and offers 400 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on 128-bit memory interface of standard GDDR3. The central unit runs at 450MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 800MHz. It consumes no more than 15 Watt.
Benchmarks indicate most modern demanding games of 2007-2010, such as Crysis, BF2 and Metro 2033 were only playable at low settings smoothly, using a 720p resolution. Therefore, today's modern demanding games should only be playable on the low preset, using a 720p resolution and extremely demanding modern games such as Crysis 3 might require very reduced settings.
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.
