In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro 2000M are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro 2000M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the Quadro 2000M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro 2000M has 1536 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800M GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro 2000M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is slightly better than the Quadro 2000M.

The Quadro 2000M has 192 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro 2000M is 211 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The Quadro 2000M having 91 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro 2000M delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro 2000M transistor size technology is 25 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the Quadro 2000M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Quadro 2000M requires 55 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 10 Watts more than the Quadro 2000M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9800M GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro 2000M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Quadro 2000M is a Professional Mobile Graphics Card based on 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 GF106-N12P-Q3 which has 4 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 550MHz.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 55W, it is suited for Average Sized Laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance identical to GeForce GT 555M

System Suggestions
We recommend a Performance Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT GPUs deliver optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. Powering the next generation of visual computing, blazing-fast mobile gaming, and the ultimate HD experience with PureVideo HD technology. This product is also enabled for CUDA applications and is NVIDIA PhysX-ready.
