Actually there are quite a few gtx 850s with Gddr5 around...
is to adjourn this comparison with driver more adjourned, isn't possible that the discrepancy is very great with 3dmark11, considering that more recent windows 8.1 use directx 11???
but there is no GD5 version of GTX850M on offer....
You are used the DDR3 version GTX850m. The comparison is not objectively.
