from AMD we have a Llano prototype with an A8-3500M APU and integrated HD 6620G graphics. There are faster clocked Llano APUs in terms of CPU performance, but by default all of the A8 GPUs run at 444MHz with 400 Radeon Cores. Second is our Trinity prototype laptop with and A10-4600M (HD 7660G graphics), running 384 Radeon Cores at a substantially higher 686MHz clock
From the Intel camp, we tested three different laptops. On the low end of the spectrum is a Dell Vostro V131 with i5-2410M CPU and HD 3000 graphics. We also tested with a quad-core i7-2820QM and HD 3000 graphics to see how much the slightly higher IGP clocks and significantly faster CPU matter with Diablo III. The third laptop is the ASUS N56VM Ivy Bridge prototype, with an i7-3720QM CPU and HD 4000 graphics
from NVIDIA we’ve got the same ASUS N56VM with i7-3720QM, only this time we’ve enabled the GT 630M graphics. We also ran some tests with an Acer AS3830TG that has an i5-2410M CPU with GT 540M graphics. Finally, we also have in a second Clevo W110ER in for review, this time from AVADirect, with an i7-3610QM and GT 650M graphics.
Besides the mash up of TDP (battery life) and pricing with all these laptops, it still provides an interesting comparison of what to expect performance wise from these different combinations.
