I have just sold a HP dv6 laptop with an Intel Core2 Duo, ATI Mobility Radeon HD4650 with 1GB RAM and a WEI 5.5. The "Gaming Graphics" index was 6.0, and the whole thing was down because of the processor at 5.5.
Even so, it is a great gaming machine. L4D, Borderlands, etc could all be played with the highest settings, and play was smooth.
I now have a Lenovo desktop with a quad-core processor showing 7.3, and a built-in ATI Radeon HD 3000 showing 5.0.
The processor is a lot faster than the previous one on the laptop, and the graphics card is not that far behind. But games just don't play smoothly at all, with lots of lag and frame drops.
I know that if I want to play games at some point I will have to get a better GFX, but really, since the difference is only 0.5 shouldn't it be a bit better?
Any opinions, ideas?
