In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 285M are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce GTX 285M was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 3700M, and so the GeForce GTX 285M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce GTX 285M and the Quadro FX 3700M have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GTX 285M has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 3700M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 285M is slightly better than the Quadro FX 3700M.

Both the GeForce GTX 285M and the Quadro FX 3700M have 128 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce GTX 285M is 192 and by the Quadro FX 3700M is 70. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce GTX 285M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GTX 285M requires 75 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700M requires 75 Watts. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 285M is a high-end GPU based on the first shader unified architecture.
It's based on the G92b Core and therefore offers 128 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs on a 256-bit memory interface of standard GDDR3. Its central unit runs at 600MHz and the memory clock operates at 1000MHz. It's therefore related to GeForce 9800 GTX and should perform considerably worse due to its lower central unit but it only ends up being 1-2% slower due to extended driver support.
Compared to GeForce GTX 280M it's only marginally faster but should remain within the same power envelope.
Most modern demanding games, at the time of its release, such as Crysis were playable at the highest settings using a 720p+ resolution. Therefore, today's modern demanding games should still run fluently at medium settings. However, DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
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.
