Solved Dual 7970M vs Dual 675M for Gaming Laptop Tags: Graphics Cards Laptops Gaming Graphics Last response: August 23, 2012 1:14 AM in Graphics & Displays Share irthinker August 16, 2012 8:22:15 PM Hello, The choice before me is whether to get dual AMD HD 7970M cards or dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M cards for a new gaming laptop. I am looking at buying the laptop in the next few weeks. I plan to use it for everything. Gaming is likely to be the most intensive thing. I want it to be able to run just about any current games, ideally at high, if not ultra. I want it to be able to run games two years from now at high settings. I will probably have 16 GB of RAM. The monitor specs are as follows: 18.4 inch (467.36 mm) WLED WideFHD (1080p) display (1920 X 1080). I may want to run it on an external monitor, such as the Asus 25.5" with a native resolution of 1920x1200. There is no cost difference from the laptop vendor.
