Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 SLI Mobile

Wider memory bus (256 vs 192 bit)
More pipelines (4096 vs 1280)
Multi-Projection
VR Ready
G-SYNC (removes screen tearing by telling the display when to renew the image. Only works with G-SYNC compatible displays)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)
Multi Monitor
CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture - an API for video card computing power usage in tasks different from 3D graphics processing. Can be used for physics simulation for instance)
3D Vision
GeForce Experience (software suite built to manage NVIDIA GPU parameters, and to record and stream game video)
Surround
NVIDIA GameStream
GPU Boost 2.0 (increases NVIDIA GPU voltage and frequency when there's a temperature headroom. Similar to AMD PowerTune)
Adaptive Vertical Sync
SLI (Scalable Link Interface - a technology for uniting several NVIDIA GPUs processing power in one PC)
3D Vision Surround

Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro P3000 Max-Q

Much newer (1 September 2017 vs 16 August 2016)
