I am looking to purchase a laptop.
The one I am looking at, has 256MB NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) Go 7600 as an option. I have seen the specs on it.
I want to upgrade to the 512 but i cant find any benchmarks or reviews (how many pipelines?)on the 512....is it worth it.
I just purchased a Laptop from www.buyxg.com (Action 3000) with an ATI Mobility X1600 256mb vid card in it and it runs great, I am able to run BF2, CS:S, and Fear at decent settings and smooth framerates, and I read a review a while back saying that the X1600 and 7600 mobile chips were near the exact same depending on what the manufacturer clocked their speeds at! Also the difference between 256mb of dedicated and 512mb of half dedicated and half hypermemory is very very small if any at all so I would save the ram for your system if you go that route.
My Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile 1.83ghz/667mhz FSB/2mb L2 Cache
1gb DDR2 667mhz
X1600 Mobility 256mb PCIe Vid Card
120gb SATA Hard Drive
15.4' ASUS Barebone
Wireless A/B/G Card
