Nvidia 310m vs ati 5730

hello community of techs !
i am debating on whether to get the Asus n61 --which has the ATI in it-- and Asus Bamboo U53 --which has the nvidia 310m--. My usage preference would be architectural designing which relates to my school work and a bit of gaming and entertainment.

thanks a bunch ! =]

More about nvidia 310m 5730
  1. The 310M is a renaming of the Geforce 210 which is a very weak card, i would definitely go for the 5730 since you plan to do a bit of gaming on it.
  2. oh i see. the trickery ! lol no wonder when i saw the specs, only 5730 runs 11dx
  3. what about ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD5730 vs nVidia GeForce GT 425M ? both runs dx 11 but 425m has higher numbers in tech spec
  4. You have them all listed in here, the best at the top.

    The HD5730 should be better, is above the other one.
  5. hmm then maybe i was reading the specs wrong... can you please double check for me ? i always thought higher numbers means better...
  6. Those people are never wrong. Also read this from their NVIDIA Geforce GT 425M page:

    Quote:
    In our tests with an Acer Aspire 5745PG pre-sample, a GT 420M performed on average between a GeForce GT 330M and GT 335M. Therefore, the GT 425 should be a bit faster than the GT 335M. Nvidia positions the card against the Mobility Radeon HD 5650.

    Edit: For GPUs it's more about the technology than the numbers.
  7. thanks. by the way, what does 3DMark Vantage do and waht does it mean ?
  8. It's a benchmark to see how powerful your computer is graphics-wise. In reality, synthetic benchmarks like 3dmark can't be taken too seriously... They only give a general idea. The real test is actual game benchmarks.
