In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro 4000M are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 3700M.

The Quadro 4000M was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 3700M, and so the Quadro 4000M 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 Quadro 4000M 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. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro 4000M also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro 4000M has 102.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro FX 3700M, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro 4000M is massively better than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The Quadro 4000M has 336 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 3700M has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro 4000M is 160 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 3700M is 70. The Quadro 4000M having 90 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro 4000M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The Quadro 4000M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 3700M. This means that the Quadro 4000M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 3700M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Quadro 4000M should consume less power than the Quadro FX 3700M.

The Quadro 4000M requires 100 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 3700M requires 75 Watts. The Quadro 4000M requires 25 Watts more than the Quadro FX 3700M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro 4000M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro FX 3700M.
