In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel HD i7 3820QM are very slightly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1600M.

The HD i7 3820QM was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 1600M, and so the HD i7 3820QM 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 3820QM does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3820QM has 16 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 Quadro FX 1600M requires 50 Watts to run but there is no entry for the HD i7 3820QM.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewHD i7 3820QM is a specific version of the Intel HD Graphics 4000 that comes with the CPU 'Core i7-3820QM 4-Core 2.7GHz'.
The new features include DirectX 11 and Tessellation support though using them might not be a very good idea since even strong fast-middle-class GPUs struggle with them.
The core-clock is initially set at 650MHz and will go to up to 1250MHz, if necessary.
The performance depends a lot on the driver support and benchmarks indicate that the most demanding games, such as Metro 2033 can only be played at the lowest settings. Deus Ex 3, for example, ran fine at high settings but other demanding games such as Crysis 2 and Batman: Arkham City only ran fluently at medium 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.
