New laptop vs. Old desktop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an old desktop, specs below.... working quite fine and still very fast thanks to sufficient ram and SSD upgrade i did quite recently.

But I will be getting a hand me down laptop - A samsung 500p4c.

if I am not mistaken, the samsung 500p4c has a 3rd gen i5 processor with 8gig ram and 640m graphics. I think it also has a hybrid storage.

Will that laptop finally out perform my desktop? Or will it be restricted still since it's a laptop?

GPUs are almost equal, while the i5 is in theory about 25% faster. Laptop i5 is more similar to desktop i3, since they are dual cores with hyperthreading. I guess you will only notice a difference if you do video editing or stuff with the cpu, given that the i5 can stay within its thermal limits to avoid throttling. Gaming wise, the GPU is the bottleneck in both cases, so there should be no noticable difference.

No... i wont be doing any editing. Not at the moment. Just basic moba gaming.

And there is significant difference in performance in Dota 2. So significant that I actually shut down the desktop and decided to just work on the laptop.

Anyway.... here's a new question...

I plan on selling the desktop pieces and buy hasswell.

Is the GPU in the haswell i5 about the same in performance as the 630m on my np500p4c samsung series 5 laptop?
