Compared the 860m vs 460m and the 880m vs the 860m. In the first comparison the 860m scored 3dmark 11 of 22k. In the second 880m scored 22k on 3dmark 11 and 860m scored 8k. Plus this site performs so slowly....
So is around 570 euro (780 dollars) (between an asus ROG G750JZ-T4152D with 880m and a lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 with 860m) worth the difference?
It is 75%. 75% of 19 fps is 14.25 fps. So 19 fps + 14.25 fps is 33.25 fps which is around 33.2 fps.
the GTX 880M says it has a 75% higher frame rate in Crysis 3 when actually its only around 25%
