Performance difference between 2 laptos

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I've been looking at 2 laptops for my GF, ASUS G55VW 15.6 & MSI GX60 15.6"

ASUS has Intel Core i7 3630QM & 660M 2GB

MSI has AMD A10-4600M & 7970M 2GB

Checked them up and the 3630QM seems to have about double the performance of the AMD CPU, but on the otherhand the 7970M has about double the performance over the 660M...

So which of these would give the best performance in games?

The price difference is very low smile.gif

Thankful for any answers

If it weren't for the crappy performance of the APU in the MSI, I'd be more inclined to go for it, but the 7970M is severely bottlenecked by that CPU. It doesn't even score 7k in Vantage, which is pretty bad considering my old i5-460M used to score 7.5k and that was in 2010. tongue.gif It's been literally two years since then.

I'm just saying.


I'd go for the Asus in this case. The 660M can overclock VERY nicely and most hit around 1200mhz core very easily. The i7 will maintain that you always use your machine to its fullest rather than holding it back.

Thanks for the info, had no idea you could clock the 660m smile.gif, I guess the 660m runs cooler or? Might just go ahead and get the Asus then smile.gif

i think i am going to get the GX60 at the first of the year. i know the CPU is a bit slower but the GPU is great and since you can get one from xoticpc for under 1100 shipped i doubt anything in that price range will touch it.
