In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro NVS 510M are marginally better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M.

The Quadro NVS 510M was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 1600M, and so the Quadro NVS 510M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro FX 1600M.

The Quadro NVS 510M 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 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro NVS 510M, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1600M is slightly better than the Quadro NVS 510M.

Both the Quadro NVS 510M 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 NVS 510M requires 45 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts. The Quadro FX 1600M requires 5 Watts more than the Quadro NVS 510M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro FX 1600M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro NVS 510M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro NVS 510M is a high-end business card with support for special drivers that are certified for professional applications like Microsoft Office Suite, Hummingbird Exceed, Lotus Notes, etc. It's part of the Quadro NVS Mobile Series released by NVIDIA, in 2006/2007/2010.
Though business cards have no driver support for games, some of them deliver astonishing performance (e.g. Quadro 6000, Tesla C2075). Quadro NVS 510M, however, isn't one of them but compared to the previous models, it delivers much better performance. The performance should be enough to handle demanding games like, Crysis 2, on the lowest settings possible but games like Metro 2033 are probably unplayable at 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.
