Intel HD3000 is faster than ATI 4200 graphics

Nice thread update. The T420 15 hour battery life model will be mine. 779 is very, very reasonable. And ample power for starcraft 2 biggrin.gif.

It's nvidia optimus switchable graphics i.e. geforce 4200m not ati 4200 as stated in the article. I believe this my be a mistake though and that it is actually quadro 4200m

I thought that it is Ati card, because most of Nvidia modern GPU has 3 digits in their name

Many sites has reported the name as 4200M which might be a business name, but why its not a quadro I dont know, maybe lack of cuda cores. But whatever it might end up being it should run my beloved SC2 which my current cant unless I use my DIY ViDock

The Intel HD 3000 graphics are about as good as ATi 5450 mobile graphics, so they're not really awesome for gaming but they're still a big increase over GMA HD graphics. BUT, there's no quad-core option for a T420, just i7 dual-core. Probably have to wait for Ivy Bridge for 35W quad-cores, so a T430 most likely would have a quad.

It's a NVS card, which is a step under Quaddro but still business-class. Not sure it's speed exactly but for rendering and 3D modelling it'll outdo any similar consumer-grade card. Might actually be based off a GT 420M. http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook-nvs.html .


Found a little more info- the T420 will have a 1366x768 screen standard, and a 1600x900 optional. And the T520 goes up to 1920x1080, yum. Too bad there's no 5 pound T520s frown.gif .
