is there a difference between ATI mobility radeon 4250 and Intel HD Graphics. I want to play NBA 2k10 even on low settings. IF there is no difference i can get a nicer laptop for cheaper with INtel HD. The laptop im currently considering is http://www.ebuyer.com/product/224136

HI guys

Im looking for a HP G62 or G72 laptop, with i3 processor, dedicated graphics card (doesnt have to be that strong but decent), 15.6in screen and 3GB+ Ram. Not over £550

(if there is another decent brand with these specs feel free to suggest this).

If anyone knows of one would be great thank you

While there is a difference, with the 4250 being slightly better, the Intel GMA HD is decent enough that i'm not sure you'll see too big a difference: You're going to want to play the game on low regardless...

Yes, the 4250 is better, but it's like comparing driving 10mph to 12mph. Sure 12 mph is 20% faster, but it's still pretty slow.

    I bought HP laptop G62-347NR,
    AMD AthlonII P340 2.2Ghz
    3 GB RAM
    320GB HDD @5400 rpm
    ATI mobility radeon HD 4250

    I am able to play almost all the major games at Medium graphics for 20-25 fps and at Lows for around 40 fps, like CRYSIS 1 & 2, COD 4, NBA 2k10, RISEN, WarCraft, Dirt 2 , FAR CRY2, so i have not come across a game which dosent run on it.

    where some games do not even run in Intel HD graphics as it lacks some qualities...
    So i recommend ATI

    I don't recommend using Intel graphics for gaming of any kind. It doesn't even support antialiasing and the drivers are beyond atrocious. As for the performance difference, I did some fancy calculations and discovered that Mobility Radeons are 2.3x faster, on average, than their Intel GMA counterparts at the same price point. I have the specifics in one of my posts in my thread:

    :pt1cable:  It also depends on the RAM available and the master CPU not only on the video GPU, if some one of you have tried with a better CPU and or RAM let me know :o
