    Well....you guys are gonna help me win $50... :laugh:
    Here is the story:
    Me and a friend of mine where arguing, whos laptop / netbook would perform better playing modern games. (BF3, MW3,.....)
    We both know that our hardware won't be able to make the games playable (maybe on lowest with some tweaks).
    So we got overbored and set up a bet for $50.
    Better machine wins.
    Well.....after researching his hardware, i have some doubts that this will be an easy victory....anyways here are the specs of our "potable snail riggs".

    Mine: PROFILE SPECS

    His:

    CPU: AMD Fusion C60 Dual Core 1.30GHz
    GPU: AMD HD6290
    RAM: 2GB DDR3
    HDD: 250GB 5400RPM
    OS: W7 32bit

    Although he has an integrated GPU, it seems to be much more modern than my NVS 140m (GF 8400m GS performance wise)
    But I am also aware, that ma C2D and DC mode give me an advantage.
    Who will do better???
    Just in case...ima think of an excuse to cancell the bet... :D


    EDIT:
    BTW my GPU is overclocked!!
    Core from 400 to 500MHz
    Memory from 600 to 800MHz
    Shader from 800 to 1000Mhz

    Why don't you just run the tests?

    Tip: there are 3rd party tools to disable certain effects in games, if you can't win with raw power use your mind. Otherwise known as cheating.

    I am sorry but the new APU's are leaps and bounds over the older Nvidia mobile chips especially a qaudro.

    Sorry to say, you will probably loose 50$
    hoax32 says thanks.
