3630MQ/670M vs. 4700MQ/770M

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Is there a significant difference in performance between these combinations? I came across a really good deal on a 3630/670 Asus G75 and I'm trying to justify getting it over a lesser equipped MSI GT70 or similar Sager of comparable price.

A 670M is on par with a desktop GTX460, while a 770M is on par with a GTX480. That's quite a difference.

the 770M explode the GTX 670M

Thanks for the replies. My bad, lostsurfer is correct. The G75 is a 670MX and not a 670M. My fault for posting incorrect information.

I currently have an MSI GT70-2OC that I am going to sell. I'm looking for a similar replacement. I'm not big on games, but I get a ton of use out of my laptop and expect at least 3 years out of it. However, I'd like something powerful enough to play something like the newest Sim City without breaking a sweat and be capable of handling everything in 3 years. I'd really like to have something that has decent audio which is what I will miss with this MSI. Yeah, I know laptop audio generally sucks. I came across this laptop last night which is far better equipped than a similarly priced MSI or Sager. Hence the reason for my question.

670MX is on par with the 765M from what I've seen.

I wouldn't downgrade unless you need the money. You'd be downgrading on power and sidegrading on portability. Why do you want to get ride of the MSI?

It's about to get RMA'D for a second time for it's third problem in just a couple of months. I can't be without a laptop for 6-8 weeks. I use it all day long, not about to deal with a lemon. I can deal with a small downgrade as I'm not a big gamer, as long as it's not substantial. The added RAM and SSD is a step up from what I have now. Sound quality is rather important.

It sounds like you received a lemon. I can understand not wanting to be without your laptop, I'm the same way.

If you don't need the gaming power, the Asus might not be too bad for your uses. I can't vouch for the audio quality, but spec wise, it should do what you need it to. It should be able to handle every game for the next 3 years as long as you're willing to lower settings and/or resolution for the occasional demanding title.

670MX = GTX 760M due to low freq

Saw the refurbs on newegg for like $880, they're sold out but I was looking at that one, or the y510p w/ the 750m sli or the Toshiba Q70 with the 770m for that 17" screen..
