So, I recently bought this Sony VAIO Laptop and its specs are as below:

Processor: 3rd gen Intel Core i5 3230m [2.60GHz / 3.20GHz with Turbo Boost]
O.S: Windows 8 Pro 64bit
RAM: 8GB DDR3 (1600 MHz)
HDD: 1TB (5400rpm) + 8GB hybrid hard drive
Graphic Card: Intel HD 4000 integrated Grap. Crd and AMD Radeon HD 7670M 2GB dedicated graphic Card

As I stated earlier 'CAN my Laptop play all these recent games like Crysis 3, Max Payne 3, Resident Evil 6 fine.
By word 'FINE' I mean on will it play games good on 'MEDIUM GAME SETTINGS' or on HIGH too??

I will be really thankful if you answer my question.

Thnx

For non-graphic intensive games a mix of low and medium.

For graphically intensive games, low.

For extremely graphic intensive games, non-playable.

The above is assuming 136x768 resolution.

For the more taxing games they will be playble on low to medium settings, but not on High.

If you go to the above link and scoot toward the bottom, on the left side you will see a list of games and the FPS/Setting.
For Ex:
Max pain 3: High = 10 FPS, Med = 37 FPS and Low = 40 FPS
Battlefield 3, Only playable on low
Crysis 3, They only listed Crysis 2 which was 29 FPS for High and 40 FPS for Med
I think 3 is more demanding than 2.
Here's a link to video w/comments for Crysis 3 (Note Your FPS will also be affected somewhat by which CPU you have, that is a i5 will probably be slightly slower than one with a i7 CPU.

Not unless you are attempting to play at above 1920x1200 resolution. The HD 7670M is much too weak to do that.
