^ It is also a workstation card, yes it will game, but it is not designed to do so.
Please do not take this the wrong way but: If you want to play games, use a gamers card, workstation cards are just not good at it.

Gaming = car race
Workstation GPU = Steel plated hummer
Top of the line gaming GPU = Porsche

Can you race with a hummer? Yes. Good at it? Probably not.

Hi!

I must answer!

I work and I play on a HP8730w with a Quadro FX 2700M and all I can say is that I play a few games as good as on my desktop PC with 8800GTS...

The secret is that the games based on OpenGL runs with this graphic card (Half Life 1 & 2, Counter Strike Source, Left 4 Dead).
For exemple with L4Dead on 1680x1050 with all parameters "High" you can play very fast.
But with a fery simple game like Trackmania Nations you must play at 1440x900.
Idem for Anno 1404.

So I think Quadro FX can be a Porshe for Open GL games! ;) 

One last thing: for my part I always prefer Nvidia drivers to the one of the computer manufacturer (HP for me).

No you must not, especially since it's an old thread, and you don't know WTF you're talking about. [:thegreatgrapeape:6]

No it won't, you might perceive it as such, but only because you don't know what you're looking at. :heink: 
There is no way that a chip with half the shader, and half the texture units running at the same speed attached to slower and less bit-wide memory is going to be on par with it's desktop counterpart, unless of course the rest of your desktop sucks! :sarcastic:

Complete crap, since those are ALL Direct3D/DX games, not OpenGL games !! [:thegreatgrapeape:5]

You can play games on Workstation cards/chips, but what you said above is complete BUNK !! :pfff:

OK OK!

I must be drunk when I play so nice on my laptop! LOL!

Sorry for disturbing!

The Quadro FX Graphics Cards will be as good for gaming as Geforce graphics cards...

(Scroll down for fps of games...)
The Quadro Graphics cards just are made for OpenGL applications... that does NOT mean that you cannot play games, it just means it is costs more. I own a Dell Precision M6400 and it plays Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare at 125 FPS. (It has Quadro FX 2700m)

Dell M6500 Gaming/Graphics Performance

Overall, the Quadro FX 3800M should be slightly faster than the GTX 280M; it has clocks of 675/1688/2000 (Core/Shader/RAM) compared to 585/1463/1900 for the GTX 280M. In fact, even the updated GTX 285M is still slower than the FX 3800M, as its clocks are 576/1500/2040—the small increase in memory bandwidth isn't enough to outweigh the higher core/shader clocks on the 3800M. That's of course only in theory; NVIDIA states that Quadro cards are optimized for professional applications where GeForce is optimized for gaming. Just as GeForce is able to run professional apps (but not at workstation GPU performance levels), Quadro can run games. The question is whether it can match the GTX 280M or not. Of course, we don't expect anyone to plunk down the money for an FX 3800M purely for gaming, since you can get 285M SLI for about the same price as a single 3800M, but the Quadro card shouldn't have any trouble running most games at high detail settings. We'll start with our graphics performance comparison using the ubiquitous 3DMark applications.

"That's of course only in theory" lol

At what resolution and what settings do you play that game? Be honest.

I am glad to see that this topic still remain interest... ! :pt1cable: 

I used to play Call Of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare :bounce:  for a long time at 1440x900 60Hz full options... it was full speed and no lagging.
