In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 720.

The GeForce GT 720 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the GeForce GT 720 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 5600 when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 512 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 720, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro FX 5600 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 62.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 720, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is much better than the GeForce GT 720.

The GeForce GT 720 has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 720 is 153 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The GeForce GT 720 having 76 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 720 transistor size technology is 62 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the GeForce GT 720 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GeForce GT 720 should consume less power than the Quadro FX 5600.

The GeForce GT 720 requires 19 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 720 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 152 Watts more than the GeForce GT 720 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 5600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 720.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 720 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
This Graphics Card Equips the Kepler GK208 GPU which is essentially a power optimized version of the GK107 GPU. Whereas it still has a count of 2 Stream Multiprocessors, the bus-width has been cut in half to allow for even a smaller power consumption and consequently a cooler operating temperature.
Additionally, the GK208 GPU allows the Central Unit to reach a significant higher frequency, thanks to the Kepler Boost 2.0 Technology. The better the laptop's cooling system, the higher the frequency.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK208 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessor activated and thus offers 192 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 797MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 19W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with the older GeForce GT 530.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Pentium G) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 720.
A revolutionary unified architecture, NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5600 and 4600 graphics boards deliver optimized application performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set, including largest frame buffers, with a C programming environment, Quadro solutions solve the most complex problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 5600 and 4600 enables next generation applications with unprecedented image quality.
