I know the AMD Radeon is better but I am wondering if it is worth the extra 200$. Can I run most modern and future games on ultra on the GTX 670m at a good fps? If not on what can I run these games and do you recommend the AMD Radeon.

Also is the processor good enough for gaming and will it last long?

Thanks.

  1. Best answer
    The 7970M is better overall. Especially when playing in ultra settings. The laptop should do well for quite a while.

    You can look at the game benches here, just scroll down, and you can compare it to the 670M

    Hope that helps :)
  2. Is the 7970M worth an extra 200$?
  3. Yes, if you want to play at very high settings.
  4. The 7970M is basically just a 7870 and the 7870 is a very good card.
