We retained the GeForce GTX 470M performance data from our previous Radeon HD 6970M review to help gauge Nvidia’s performance spread. Though it appears to use a newer driver, Nvidia has not yet developed a single driver that supports both mobile modules.

Notice that significant differences between builds are limited to the installed graphics modules. Because of that, anyone looking for “interesting” results will probably want to jump directly to game test results.
