In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 1800M are marginally better than the Intel HD i7 3840QM.

The HD i7 3840QM was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 1800M, and so the HD i7 3840QM is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro FX 1800M.

The Quadro FX 1800M has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i7 3840QM does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD i7 3840QM has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 1800M has 72. However, the actual shader performance of the HD i7 3840QM is 83 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 1800M is 40. The HD i7 3840QM having 43 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 1800M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The HD i7 3840QM transistor size technology is 18 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 1800M. This means that the HD i7 3840QM is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 1800M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the HD i7 3840QM should consume less power than the Quadro FX 1800M.

The HD i7 3840QM requires 45 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1800M requires 45 Watts. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.
