Advantages of NVIDIA Quadro M4000M

Much newer (18 August 2015 vs 7 January 2014)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)

Advantages of AMD Radeon R6 M255DX

More pipelines (576 vs 1)
App Acceleration
PowerPlay
PowerTune (dynamically increases AMD GPU's voltage and frequency while there's still enough temperature headroom. Similar to NVIDIA GPU Boost)
ZeroCore
Enduro (saves battery charge by automatically switching between an integrated and discrete AMD GPU depending on workload. Similar to NVIDIA Optimus)
Eyefinity (allows using several displays with an AMD GPU)
Mantle (an API developed by AMD for 3D graphics acceleration. Discontinued and later superceded by Vulkan)
AppAcceleration
