Instead of letting the site die, I'm going to use it to write about gaming. And, for me, gaming means Crysis. I've been playing Crysis 2 for more than 18 months and I loved it, so you can guess I'm really excited about the Crysis 3 launch in February 2013. WOW! Will your laptop run Crysis 3? How much would you have to spend in a new laptop to be able to play Crysis 3? These questions will b... more.

It's been a looong time (more than 14 months) since my last post, and I definitely don't have the time to update the site. So I'm probably going to delete the site and sell the domain using sedo.com or a similar service. But if anybody is interested on running the site, let me know, maybe we could share the earnings (if any). I'm open to other suggestions, of course.... more.

So, after the rumours of an Alienware M18x, now comes a supposed 14-inch model, the Alienware M14x. There is very little information about specifications, but Nvidia GeForce GT 555M, AMD Radeon HD 6770 and HD 6830 have been mentioned as possible GPUs. And this time, at least, there is a picture of the laptop. If we are going to believe all the rumours, Alienware is going to have 5 different lap... more.

I'm amazed about how well the Crysis 2 Demo runs on older hardware. It runs very nicely (around 30 fps) on my desktop (Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3 GHz, ATI Radeon HD 4670) at 1440x900 and Gamer settings. I can even go up to Advanced settings and 1280x800 and get around 25 fps (as in the original game, it's very playable at 25 fps). If you have graphics card with a similar performance, you can easily ... more.

Asus announced at CeBIT the update of their G-series of laptops: The Asus G74SX is the new flagship of the brand. This 17-inch 3D gaming laptop gets the new Intel Huron River platform with Sandy Bridge processors and the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M, that seems to be an overclocked version of the GTX 460M. For 3D they stick to Nvidia 3DVision, 120 Hz display and 3D glasses. If you'd like to a... more.

Finally, a side-by-side comparison between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 485M and the ATI Radeon HD 6970M, with the same processor (an Intel Core i7 2920XM), courtesy of Tom's Hardware. They only test 4 games: Crysis (of course), F1 2010, Just Cause 2 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, but as both cards are tested in the same laptop (a Clevo P150HM assembled by MALIBAL), the comparison is very inter... more.

This seems a site devoted to the Radeon HD 6970M lately... But Tom's Hardware has published an interesting set of benchmarks of the AMD Radeon HD 6970M CrossFireX, putting it against the GeForce GTX 470M SLI and 480M SLI (no 485M, sadly). They don't test a lot of games, only COD: Modern Warfare 2, DIRT 2, Crysis and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, but you get the idea. Source: AMD's Mobility R... more.

This time the benchmarks are from Notebookcheck and, contrarily to the benchmarks published at Notebook Journal, they DO compare the 6970M against the GTX 485M but... Oh wait! The processor is quite different: an Intel Core i7 740QM in the laptop with the 6970M vs a Core i7 2630QM in the one with the GTX 485M. The difference between these processors is not small: the 2630QM is 40-50% faster in som... more.

The guys at Notebook Journal have benchmarked a Clevo W860CU by Eurocom with the all-new ATI Radeon HD 6970M. Sadly, there are only a few benchmarks comparing it with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 480M, and none against the newer GTX 485M, but in most comparisons the ATI wins at high resolutions. The site is in German, but you can go directly to the benchmarks. Source: Notebook Journal. Via: Portables... more.
