More about : urgent Best solution ct1615 a c 235 U Graphics card May 26, 2010 2:58:19 AM its easy, the 5470 and i7 are both better then the 4570 & i-5 the ATI mobile 4570 offers desktop ATI 4550 performance, the 5470 is slightly better. the mobile i7 is easily a better gaming CPU then the mobile i-5 the i7 has twice the core, twice the virtual cores, and twice the cache of the i-5. Although it does not make the CPU twice as fast. hneal87 May 26, 2010 3:21:07 AM ok ok cool, just confsued about why the i7 is better even with the less 1.6 - 2.8 ghz vs. the 2.9 on the i5 (Thanks for the speedy response!)
