Benchmark Results: F1 2010
AVADirects’s GTX 485M SLI configuration beats the 6970M CrossFire competition at our lowest F1 2010 settings, though most high-end hardware buyers wouldn’t choose this resolution.
The Radeon HD 6970M CrossFire’s good AA performance stands out at higher F1 2010 resolutions. On the other hand, our test notes show that even the weakest graphics configuration maintains minimum performance greater than 20 FPS.
Those who need to process large data sets on the go would likely see lots of use from a machine like this.
Also, those who develop software and need a mobile machine to showcase their new products (especially if that software happens to be a game).
Diminishing returns? Maybe with personal laptops < 1000 dollars. Not with this class of machine.
Judging from the specs,1 GTX 485M performance falls between a desktop GTX 460 and GTX 560Ti right ?
But I liked to see a desktop system in the comparison charts.
I understand that the value proposition is not very good still, but your conclusion is misleading in my opinion. People splashing out to be able to play the most modern games at highest res simply do not care how many excessive frames are pushed at the low end.
so how can an SLI'd GTX 485 could be cheaper than an Xfire'd GTX 485M ?
