gpu rams dont effect performance at all.
gt 820m and gt 820m 2gb has basically the same score
What toshiba?
what? i have gt 820m 2gb, not 1gb.
Was going to get 800$ msi laptop with 820m but after this went with a toshiba with the exact same specs but with a 740m for 700$ thanks aloe rlly appreciate it u guys are badass:-)
Same shit. It isn't going to make a difference since those benchmarks don't even take up that much resource
hey whats about 2GB of 820M
Gt 740m 2gb vs gt 820m 1gb unfare make it 2gb
