I recently got myself a laptop with an over_powered card for a mere 450€: the AMD Radeon HD 6650M. It fares very well, can run all Source Games on High with Anti-Alliasing. And man, things look pretty.
The only things I don’t like about this card are:
- While GIMP is open, it sometimes shows graphical artifacts for a split second.
- GMod’s Super DoF only works 50% of the time. How the hell did a Intel GMA manage to have only an 90% success rate is beyond my knowledge.
- I get paranoid when the fps looses consistency.
- Selecting a bone in blender takes 1-2 seconds.
