gt 230m or gt 320m
#1
Which is better between the two? I can't find any stats on the 320m so I have no idea.
Windows 7 - Asus G73jh-a1 - 17-720qm @ 1.6 GHz (2.8 GHz)(2.4ghz)(1.73ghz) - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 @ 700/1000 (sometimes oc to 800/1100) - 8 gig ram

If my understanding of NVidia's naming scheme is right, the 230m should be better.

Vegeta: It's...one thousand and six.
Nappa: Wh-...really?
Vegeta: Yeah! Beat him up Nappa!
Nappa: Yay!

What dr_thrax said. Heck, knowing NVIDIA, it's quite possible that the GT 320M is a rebrand of the GT 230M. Tongue

A Rebrand? So ur telling me Hp (this is the reason y I asked, the dv7t or dv8t laptops have these video cards) is talking BS with the whole "320m for i7" crap? Wow, what a way to make money..... They make it sound like its some kind of super video card thats fit for the i7.

thx for your help. Now the only thing I have to decide is do I want a slightly better video card with a big bulky laptop (19xxp X 1080p res) or a slightly weaker card with a not so bulky laptop (16xxp X 9xxp). I put "x" cause I forgot the exact number.

No, it's not HP that's talking bullcrap in this case; it's Nvidia.
Just like the case with a GTS250 which is a rebranded 9800GTX.
Actually GT320 is slightly weaker than GT230.

In any case, that '16xxp X 9xxp' thing?
Might be a losing one but I bet those should be zeroes, as in 16:9 ratio. =b

I can tell you the GT 230M works quite well, and the temp stays fairly low (in my rig, anyways).

I couldn't get much on the 320M, but the 320M was presented in the HP dv6t and dv7t series and could still based on the old GeForce 9600M GT (like the GeForce GT 220M) with 32 shader cores and still 65nm production process.

If the 320M is still based on the older 9600M, then the specs may be in favor of the 230M. The info on the specs is empty on the site for the 320M, so this is based off the specs of the 9600M. That, and, the 230M is slightly better than the 325M (in benchmarks).

I would say (and based on benchmarks):

GT 320M < GT 325M < GT 230M < GT 330M

So how good is the GT 330M? I noticed those are used in quite a fair bit of high end laptops that are not for gaming.

The core (75), shader (265) and memory (266) speed are all a little faster (these numbers are how many Mhz the 330M has over the 230M). The other specs are more-or-less the same.

The actual benchmark scores are:

GT 230M: 10689
GT 330M: 12579

Bear in mind, these score do not necessarily represent how well they'll handle PCSX2, and the scoring scale is about 1 - 20,000
