    They are all DDR3, not GDDR3.

    Hey, this is ForumNewb here. I'm thinking of buying a Vaio SB with beomsu21's configuration and I was wondering, with the small size of the computer and an i7+6630m, how well does it manage heat while under load?

    Thanks.

    6630M is going to be ROP bound compared to a 5730....

    I am not sure what ROP bound exactly means, but to reply to ForumNewb,
    I have played quite a few games and one of them is BF:BC2 which is pretty CPU intensive compared to other FPS and my fan runs pretty high, but not too bad and with the settings to a little above medium to high I have played for a few hours and it reach max temps of about 75C to less than 80C.
    This is with very slight overclocking.

    on the bottom left side of the track pad, it is near ice cold....
    but on the bottom right side of the track pad it gets quite warm.

    I dont do stress tests and full complete tests.. I just do realistic, everyday tests and if it passes then I am fine.. Currently I am really happy.. .aside from wishing they reduced the frame around the lcd as well as making the notebook a little smaller, its perfect...

    The 5650 to 6770 all have 8 ROPs, you can look up their function, but they depend on the core clock, so having lots of shaders, lower clocks and still a decent amount of mem bandwidth the ROP count will limit performance.

    That's great. I didn't think a cpu and gpu of that power could be fit into a 13 inch laptop and work without overheating. I've always thought that 13 inchers are meant to use entry level cpus and gpus at best. Must be that I'm using my Asus ul30vt for too long. Time to replace. : D

    so i learned a lot in this thread about the 6600M/6700M cards in this thread. can someone explain why you wouldnt put a 6750M into a laptop instead of a 6650M. They have same clock speed and shaders but one has GDDR3 and the other GDDR5. Is it simply because its more expensive?...does GDDR5 run hotter? i mean 3dmark06 scores look about 2k higher so why not have the other chip? why even make the other one haha. simple answer is fine i seek wisdom of forum

    GDDR5 at the same speed provides double the bandwidth.

    It unlocks whatever chip is connected to it and allows it to perform as best as it ever will.
