GT 425M worse than GT 8400M?
#1
Hey guys the laptop in my sig seems to be the one I'm interested in for xmas and I've decided I'm good with the processor( not ideal w/ PCSX2 but I only really wanna play FFX good), the RAM is more than needed for the time being and I did think the graphics card GT 425M was better than my current GT 8400M due to having over 1GB of memory whereas the GT 8400M only has 880MB but I've been told the 425M is worse?? OhmyWacko

The laptop I'm using now is 4 years old, was £900(a steal at the time for the UK market I think given its 17") but surely after 4 years development and that it has more memory surely it is better?

A 8400M won't even come close to a GT 425M wich is in between GT330 and GT335 according to notebookcheck.

Thought so! Tongue. So 425M GT would be comfortable running FFX without native? thanks ChronicNL

Easily.
You will be able to run pretty much any modern regular game as well.
Be it not on the best settings but still.

The GT 425M can handle FFX at more than 1024x1024 without question. I'd bet it could do around 1920x1080, but it may need a little OC to stay at 60fps. Just be sure you know what you're doing and the GPU isn't already running hot before you attempt any of that. Smile

Im a pessimist when it comes to money (scottish traits lol) so even if I learned perfectly I probably would not overclock. I think on a 16.4" laptop though 1080p probably would not be any better than 720p I think(better than real life Lol) as your eyes can't even process the finer quality anymore.

Your eyes can process the finer quality.
I can clearly tell the difference between 720P and 1080P at half a meter distance.

The difference is more/less apparent depending on the size of the screen though, generally with a laptop it's a lot easier to settle for lower resolutions. Especially when your GPU will struggle a lot more to hit the higher resolutions in games than a good desktop one.
