Hello Tom's Hardware,

I am looking at buying a laptop with one of the below graphics cards.
ATI Mobility Radeon 5730M
ATI Mobility Radeon 5740M
The problem is I haven't seen reviews for this card anywhere and my preferred website - notebookcheck.net - does not seem to have any record of it.

I am assuming that because 4 is bigger than 3, the 5740M is a newer version of the 5730M, meaning it is more powerful.

Can anybody confirm this and provide some benchmark results or FPS tests for various popular games?

Whoops I copy pasted the 5730 part to 5740 and changed the 3 to a 4.
I am not sure if it is part of the same series.

I am looking at this website:
http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/notebook.pdf
and many laptops have this graphics card:
ATI HD 5470M

I know, I use NoteBookCheck regularly and I am looking into buying a laptop that has one of the two cards. However, check this out:
K52DR-EX143V
ATI HD5740M
15.6” LED Screen
AMD Phenom II P920
Windows 7 Home Premium
4GB DDR3 500GB SATA
1GB Dedicated VGA
Is this a typo or is this a card?

oh, ok. cheers.
That makes sense and I am glad I have not bought that laptop; it is very inferior to the 5730M. (copied from other post)

The 5730 is just a small bump up in performance over the 5650. You might have seen Notebookcheck call it an overclocked 5650.
But the performance gap between 5730/5650 and the 5470 is quite a large one. More than 100% jump up in performance for 3DMark06

Yes, I have noticed that. Recently I have been using the "Gaming Graphics Cards Comparison" list, found here:
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Computer-Games-on-Laptop-G...
To compare how different potential laptops will perform. I prefer this because it is a little more user-friendly and it makes it more obvious which cards will and won't do certain things.

If I may ask just one more question,
"What is the nVidea equivalent of an ATI 5730?"

Probably the new GT 540M or the GT 445M. The GT 435M is a competitor to the Mobility 5650.

Hmm I see, thank you.
You have been very helpful. I will consider this information as I scan through more laptops.
