In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7450M are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M.

The Radeon HD 7450M was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 1600M, and so the Radeon HD 7450M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 1600M when running the latest games.

The Radeon HD 7450M has 512 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 1600M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Quadro FX 1600M has 11.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 7450M, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1600M is slightly better than the Radeon HD 7450M.

The Radeon HD 7450M has 160 Shader Processing Units but the Quadro FX 1600M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 7450M transistor size technology is 40 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 1600M. This means that the Radeon HD 7450M is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 1600M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 7450M should consume less power than the Quadro FX 1600M.

The Radeon HD 7450M requires 7 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts. The Quadro FX 1600M requires 43 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7450M to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 1600M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 7450M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon HD 7450M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Seymour PRO which has 2 Compute Units activated and thus offers 160 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 700MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 7W, it is suited for smaller laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a GeForce GT 520M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Budget Processor (Intel Celeron Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7450M.
The Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.
