In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro 1000M are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 320M.

The Quadro 1000M was released less than a year after the GeForce 320M, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Quadro 1000M has 2048 MB video memory, but the GeForce 320M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Quadro 1000M has 96 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 320M has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro 1000M is 67 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 320M is 45. The Quadro 1000M having 22 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro 1000M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 320M.

The Quadro 1000M requires 45 Watts to run and the GeForce 320M requires 23 Watts. The Quadro 1000M requires 22 Watts more than the GeForce 320M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro 1000M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce 320M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe NVIDIAŽ QuadroŽ Mobile Workstation product family is a complete top-to-bottom range of solutions with unmatched performance and quality for the most demanding professionals on the go. From digital content creators on a movie set, to design engineers at a remote plant, to geo-scientists on an oil rig, Quadro mobile graphics processing units (GPUs) are the trusted solution for professional 3D applications.Overview
GeForce 320M is an Integrated Mobile Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Tesla MCP89 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 450MHz.

The GPU also Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 256MB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

DirectX 10.1 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 14W, it may be used on very small notebooks.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance considerably above the desktop GeForce 210.
