I'm currently buying a laptop for occasional gaming.

I'm expecting equal or superior performance to the Radeon HD 6550D of my A8-3870 APU

I found a laptop with a 7520G APU.... how does it compare to the 6550D ? Will i get equal or superior performance ?

In other words, what does a 6550D equals to if you compare it with laptop GPU ?

Thanks !

I am actually not sure, cant seem to find much info on the 7520G, but based on the disignation it is a Trinity based APU, the enxt generation of them.

As for performance it should be much better(17% average) from the reviews of trinity I have read. It should also provide better better battery life as they use much less ower than the Llano range of 6550D.

Ok well what about a 7640G then ? Is it equal or better than an integrated HD 6550D from a desktop A8 APU ??

You are right, but the 7520G has a lower TDP.

Of course, because it's a laptop component, vs other one being desktop one :lol:
