AMD video card are jumping ahead of Nvidia and I Can safely say AMD is atleast 1 year ahead of Nvidia
So where is the numbers from a 5870 for us to compare?
Smooth Creations LANShark "Blue Flame" + ASUS G73JH-A2 + ASUS EeePC S101HYes it's the original InfinityzeN
Umm... I wouldnt say that mate... sure AMD has the upper edge at the moment... but nvidia isnt lacking either. One year ahead.... one year is too large an amount of time.... perhaps 1 month ahead is more suitable.
"the 480M is likely to be similar in performance to the Radeon HD 6970M while the GTX 485M should be a bit faster. This puts the Radeon between the GTX 470M and GTX 485M in terms of performance. "
My only fit with gaming notebooks are battery drain mate, as well as portability (12 lbs, dang).... and the fact it probably contributes to weaker sperm haha. I've said this before, and i'll continue saying it.
Eurocom dont lie when they its a desktop replacement. And Hollly snap, 4 fans inside. My main tower has only 3 for comparison sake..... also 7K for a decked-out portable desktop... i dont know what to say.
Whats pretty cool though about the gpu is that it has dual graphics engines and you can crossfire em in a Laptop.... ergh, portable desktop
coolice: the fact it probably contributes to weaker sperm
That's OK, then you can do 'Bizness' without having to cash a big check!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I salute you realneil
Wow the 6970M's seem to do a totally bang up job in crossfire even over SLI much less anything beneath it. It seem like it may be time for ATI to receive some love on the mobile side like they did on the desktop side the last what 3 years now.
This is great news for AMD , Excellent performance, great job. As for The Eurocom Panther, it will be nice to see the comparisons when the P67/2600k get cramped into this chassis.
And since Sandy Bridge is a great overclocker on Air with the lower TDP and better efficiency, maybe it can reach 4.0 and not present a thermal challenge like the current models with the 980x.

yeah I have never understood the 7k up laptop/desktop replacement market anyway. If I was going to get something with components like this I think I would go to AVA direct, or just build a desktop. It is not like your going to get more than 30 minutes mobile gaming out of one, unless of course it is with a adapter in a car anyway. SO just build yourself a $2500 desktop and save yourself 4500 buck's (and that is a high price for a home brew desktop at 2500) but it will outperform this 7k Dtop replacement any day as well as last longer I would bet.
@Teerwik - The 6970M is definitely AMD's strongest mobile GPU to date, but I just wanted to point this out from the conclustion page: "...note that the GeForce GTX 470M isn't the fastest mobile card NVIDIA has to offer. Indeed they also have a GeForce GTX 480M and a 485M which is even faster. While we didn't have a GTX 480M or GTX 485M on hand for comparison, judging by their specifications in relation to the GTX 470M, the 480M is likely to be similar in performance to the Radeon HD 6970M while the GTX 485M should be a bit faster."
We've got a different notebook with the 485M on the way and will be posting a review soon.
