In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce GTX 560M was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 3700M, and so the GeForce GTX 560M 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 560M has 512 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 3700M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 560M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 560M has 8.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 3700M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 560M is marginally better than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce GTX 560M has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700M has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 560M is 298 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is 70. The GeForce GTX 560M having 228 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 560M delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce GTX 560M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 3700M. This means that the GeForce GTX 560M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The GeForce GTX 560M 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 ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 560M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Fermi Architecture.

The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF116 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 775MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1.5GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for large laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance identical to a desktop GeForce GTs 450.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 560M.
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.
