Whats the reason for doing so much better in 3d mark? Coincidentally that is the first benchmark i ran on my new computer lol.
Both of them are good enough for most of the games, just 840m is a slightly better. For example 820m can easily run MGSV on high ~30fps, and Dying light at low ~24fps, but the 840m would have ~5fps more.
i don't know how to read this XD...just tell me how's good gt840m and 820m.. rate between them...
