AMD 6720G2 or Nvidia 540M

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all!
So I have a big dilemma, I've been researching for weeks now and I've decided that I need a little help on the side smile.gif

I'm looking at the two notebooks, here are the links(They are Croatian sites, but I think you'll understand the specs):

http://www.superbit.hr/Prijenosna-racunala/ACER/Acer-Aspire-5560G-6346G64MNBB-PLAVI-LX.RQP0C.006/flypage.tpl.html

http://www.telebit.hr/NB-Acer-Aspire-5750G-2416G64MNKK--LX-RAZ0C-032--black--Intel-i5-2410M-2-3GHz--6GB--640GB--15-6--1366x768--nVidia-GF-GT-5/p/92057743.aspx

The prices of the two are very similar, so it's not important.
My problem is I can't decide which one is better for gaming. Interesting thing about the one with AMD is that it has a combination of two GPUs, the one integrated in the APU and the discrete 6650M and in theory it should be more powerful than the 540M in the Intel one but I couldn't find any tests of the AMD one in real time so I don't know if it performs as well as on the paper(in this case the screen:)).
As for the CPUs when looking at the Passmark CPU scores the A6 3400M is scored higher than i5 2410M and I'm not quite sure that's right.

So I would be glad if someone could help me solve this problem so I can finally buy a new notebook in peace and play something smile.gif
Thx...
My baby :)

You can play with a benchmark comparison here. Edit: Didn't read your comment about passmark. I remember reading somewhere that the 540m had decent battery management if that's important to you.

Yeah I know that previous generations of notebook AMD wasn't so great but this APU thingy seems ok.
So when it comes to 6720GS can anyone tell how it works in games, anyone has it?

Sorry if you had already made a decision on a laptop and now this is completely useless.I have been using an ASUS Laptop with AMD recently for both work and gaming.
So far I would have to say it is well done!I have been playing Grand Theft Auto IV On high details and it doesn't seem to have many lag problems at all. Later I played Terraria and it was very smooth.
Before I guess you could say I was a NVIDIA geek because I had dislikes about AMD from the past but I feel that they had really changed it now. And about the specs between NVIDIA and the AMD is there is honestly no difference, I think that the NVIDIA is slightly better on some occasions, depending on the game.
But honestly, they are both okay processors, so the choice on which computer is up to you. Only problem that bothers me is that they are Acers and I have a REALLY bad problem with them, I don't know about you.
Contact me if you want more info on the processor if you really want.
