ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 vs. Desktop

Hello, I am looking to buy a new gaming laptop for college sometime in the near future. One of the laptops I am looking at comes with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870. I was wondering if the laptop version of the card is as powerful as the desktop version. I am new to ATI products, and am also wondering what this card would compare to on an Nvidia laptop graphics card.

  1. It is not as powerful as the desktop version here is a good reference site for laptop cards.

    Take a look at the hierarchy chard there. The 5870m is not as fast as the desktop version, but mobility cards rarely match the performance of their same-named desktop counterparts. You can see the mobility 5870 is about where a 5770 is. Its still the best mobility card at the moment.
  3. Thanks a lot, was having trouble finding articles on the mobility version until now.
