The GMA950 gets a Gaming score of 3.0. (Not kidding).
I just bought a new HP dv6253 laptop yesterday and I stumbled onto this Windows Performance Index when I went to play a simple game. I have the AMD Turion 64x2 TL-50 with the GeoForce6150 and 2GB RAM but my performance index is only 2.4! If you dig deeper, you see it rates 5 criteria, and the others aren't bad. But based on gaming graphics the overall rating is only 2.4.
I bought a retail model, so I knew I wasn't getting top graphics. But salesmen at every store predicted that the AMD+nVidia would be a little better than the Intel DualCore 2060 w/GMA950 (which k3l0 says is 3.0).
I just stopped at Best Buy and took a peek at their notebooks on display. The inexpensive Compaq Turion 64 MK-36 with the same graphics card had a rating of 3.0, but the HP Turion 64x2 TL-50 had a rating of 2.4.
Why is the Turion 64x2 TL-50 so low and is there a driver or something to improve it?
Where will this low performance be noticeable, other than certain types of games?
