In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M are significantly better than the Intel HD i7 2617M.

The HD i7 2617M was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 1600M, and so the HD i7 2617M 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 Quadro FX 1600M has 512 MB video memory, but the HD i7 2617M does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

Both the HD i7 2617M and the Quadro FX 1600M have 0 Shader Processing Units. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD i7 2617M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i7 2617M is a specific version of the Intel HD 3000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Core i7-2617M 2-Core 1.5GHz'. It uses the CPU's Level 3 Cache (up to 4 MB, in this case) + part of the RAM installed on the system up to a maximum of approximately 1.7GB for Vista/7 and 1 GB for XP. The Memory controller supports DDR3-1066 and DDR3-1333 and the Turbo Boost technology of the processor can over-clock the graphics card clock from 350MHz to 950MHz.
Nevertheless it's still an integrated GPU with shared memory so its performance is very limited. Still, demanding games like Crysis 2 should still run on the lowest settings.
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.
