NVIDIA GeForce FX 3700M – review
The GeForce FX 3700M from NVIDIA is comes under high-end workstation graphics card for large and desktop replacement parts. Here are some technical details of this processor.
The core speed of the Quadro FX 3800M processor is 550 MHz. By comparision the Quadro FX 3800M processor has core frequency of 675 MHz.The shader clock in the Nvidia GeForce FX 3700M works at 1375 MHz. If you are looking for a higher shader clock you may like to graduate to the 3800M model which has shader clock speed of 1688 MHz.
The Nvidia GeForce FX 3700M consumes 75 Watts of power and is therefore not very well suited for high battery life or low power consumption. This graphics chip is intended for large notbooks.
The Quadro FX 3700M can have upto 1 GB of GDDR3 memory. With 256-bit memory interface it can give 51.2 GBps of bandwidth working at 800 MHz.
NVIDIA Quadro FX are based upon the Nvidia Cuda architecture. According to NVIDIA “they provide new capabilities in interactivity and visual quality with unmatched performance.”
CUDA stands for for Compute Unified Device Architecture. It is a parallel computing architecture developed and is the computing engine in graphics processing units (GPUs). The architecture is accessible to software developers standard programming languages like ‘C for CUDA’.
The successor to the Nvidia GeForce FX 3700M is the Nvidia GeForce FX 3800M that has higher clock rate. The Nvidia GeForce FX 3800M has the same power consumption as Nvidia GeForce FX 3700. The processor is built on 65nm technology and has 754 million transistors.
The 3DMark 05 ( standard 1024 x 768) gives it a value of 15759. 3DMark 06 gives it average score of 10847. By Comparition the 3800M has average score of 13323.
