Default 7700 go vs. 8series go

Ok, obviously the 7950's are the best laptop vgu's around im guessing, but how does the 7700 512mb compare to the 8600 512mb card? please remember im talking about laptop vgu's here.

8600 GT's will be better. Note that there are two versions of the 8600gt flowing around. One has DDR2 memory and therefore clocked lower while the other has DDR3. The performance difference is pretty significant, about 500+ 3dmarks(06) between the two. I believe there are only two notebooks that use DDR3 8600gt's, the asus g1/g2 and the macbook pro. The dells, sager 2090's all use ddr2.

Also note that while both versions are fast then 7700's, the 7700 doesn't lag too far behind the ddr2 one.

right, I saw that ddr2 8600's. so basically, go with an 8series when possible no matter what over the 7700? I cant really afford an 79x0 right now, so I think ill see what an 8 series can do.... lemme know,
