New laptop

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
got £880 to spend on a laptop ive found a laptop i want to get its a dell studio XPS 17

specs are :

i7-740
500gb 7200rpm
8gb ddr3 1333
3gb gt 445m


Seems a good laptop to be fair my questions are :

Does the i7 cpu have 4 cores and 8 threads like the pc cpu?

Is that gpu good for a laptop? how do i compare laptop gpu's as i have seen a laptop with a 5470 ati one and just wondered if it was better than the 445/435 nvidia's ???






Thanks

Will give you some rough benchmarks on how each card will perform, but do not expect them to perform as well as the benches list as they don't post the settings they use for they're benches. They standardize across the board for the games so if they are running crisis on 720p, all high settings, no AA, on the MR 5470 then they are doing the same for the GTX 445m.

GTX 445m > GTX 435m 2gb > GTX 435m 1gb > MR 5470

Over all the 445m is a great card and you will be able to play most games at med/high or low/med

Have you looked at the Asus G73? That 445m isn't great. You want at the very least a 5730.
