The Quadro FX 1500M was a professional mobile graphics chip by NVIDIA, launched in April 2006. Built on the 90 nm process, and based on the G71 graphics processor, in its QDFX-1500M-N-A2 variant, the chip supports DirectX 9.0c. Since Quadro FX 1500M does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The G71 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 196 mm² and 278 million transistors. It features 20 pixel shaders and 7 vertex shaders, 20 texture mapping units, and 16 ROPs, . Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). NVIDIA has paired 512 MB GDDR3 memory with the Quadro FX 1500M, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 375 MHz, memory is running at 500 MHz.
Being a mxm module card, its power draw is rated at 45 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. Rather it is intended for use in laptop/notebooks and will use the output of the host mobile device.
