Okay, so here's the deal. I can get either of them for a similar price... but I know there are some inherent differences. I have been looking for benchmarks but I've been unable to find any.
So the 256MB ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON® X1400 HyperMemory has the whole hypermemory which I realize is not good, but I still don't know how bad it really is.
The 256MB NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) Go 7400 I know very little of, anyone care to share some points of view?
I am mainly going to play World of Warcraft and I wanna be able to play on full settings without any real loss of framerates. I have a 2GB RAM and a T5500 to run this on so the other parts are good enough, I am mainly concerned about the graphic cards.
Anyone care to share their great wisdom with me? Please
this may also help you, seems to me that the 7400 would have been faster if not for the 64-bit interface which is what keeps it from beating the x1400, but i dont no if the x1400 that was benchmarked was hypermemory or not. I am pretty sure the x1400 already has 128 dedicated and the other 128 is shared so its not completely bad. I have the x1400 in my new laptop and was able to play halflife 2: lost coast on high with hdr without AA at 1280x800 at about 28 fps and it was solid except in a few occasions. The ati card can also do HDR and AA at the same time granted it might be too low end of a card to even need that but anyway i would go with the x1400 especailly if it is cheaper than the 7400. I had to make a similar decision when choosing between the x1400 and the 7300 when purchasing my laptop.
