Rock Xtreme X770 laptop with Nvidia GeForce 8800M graphics

Stellar gaming performance

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

In synthetic system tests like PCMark05 and PCMark Vantage there’s very little to choose between the two although the 8800M graphics do occasionally gain an edge which probably says more about synthetic benchmarks than it does about 3D graphics in day-to-day use.

It’s a completely different story in tests that put an emphasis on graphics, as the 8800M makes the 7950 Go look pathetic. In 3DMark06, the architecture of 8800M allows you to combine High Dynamic Range (HDR) lighting with anti-aliasing, while 7950 Go forces you to choose one or the other. In F.E.A.R Extraction Point, the 8800M has a small advantage but both chips do a very capable job. However, in Crysis, it’s 8800M GTX all the way.
