Combined with AMD's ZeroCore and Power Gating technology, the HD 7000M series is setting up to be a very power efficient platform.

So, for users who are looking for a ton of gaming performance in a package that is mobile, going with a machine like the ORIGIN PC EON17-SLX is the best option.

In The News From around the web

While we already did a drop, scratch and water test to see if the smartphone could sustain a few hits here and there; iFixit’s One M8 teardown would show you what to expect realistically when you have a broken or damaged HTC One M8.
IFixit also notes that the repair work is made harder by the use of copious amounts of tape, adhesive, and copper shielding.
Without going through a horrible amount of headaches, building a custom gaming notebook is a pretty tough task.
If you can afford it, the ORIGIN PC EON17-SLX gaming notebook will, without a doubt, leave a positive impression on you in nearly every category.
The 760M and 765M both use 768 CUDA cores, but the 765M is clocked almost 200MHz faster.
The RAM and core are connected via a 256-bit interface.

Nvidia announces five new Geforce 700M GPUs

by Slobodan Simic |

It is not clear how GT 740M ends up clocked higher than the GT 745M but it might have something to do with the maximum Boost.
All five new GPUs will feature Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus and Nvidia Geforce Experience technologies.

I have Dell Inspiron 5737 with AMD HD 8870M videocard. This is a good videocard for its price. This is its the real performance in gaming: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCTXDO2iGTs&list=PLOQsqHI_qZMEaMOWomsK7E_0SY2A6w-KI
