Default The GeForce GTX 485M SLI Mobile Graphics Giant

Because I know most people will skip to the end to read this bit anyway, I'll put the interesting bits up front.

Using the same X7200 notebook and non-graphics hardware, AVADirect's GTX 485M SLI machine provides around 6% better average gaming performance at around 10% lower cost than its competitor's 6970M CrossFire solution. That sounds like improved value to us. Yet that value is vulnerable, attacked with a simple price cut on high-margin parts. Once this review was written and posted, AVADirect updated its pricing, listing its own Radeon HD 6970M CrossFire configuration for several hundred dollars less than the tested GeForce GTX 485M. Adding a reduced-cost 6970M option to its configuration sheets allows AVADirect to retain its price leadership, while potentially handing the graphics value crown back to AMD.
