    Don`t look at the P score. That is CPU and GPU combined. Look at the GPU score. And compare with these numbers . Look at "P GPU" under Vantage and you will see that 570M score about 9550 in average. The last score there is 570M overclocked (Its a good overclocker)

    EDIT: Oh you mean the 670M. Doh. Yeah its faster than 660M, about 11000 in GPU score. Its a 80W GPU btw

    Do not fall for the newbie trap of thinking higher is better. The 670m is just a
    rebadged card. The 670m is a fermi 40nm card vs the gtx660m 28nm kepler card. Simple terms 2010 process technology is the 670m vs 2012 process technology which is the gtx660m.

    A 7870m is what you should be aiming for as that is 28nm low tdp maybe 45w-50w that performs as well as the 670m 90-100w card.

    I have been waiting for this laptop to release. I have the G73JH from BestBuy which is fairly trashed now after being on a deployment. Having said that: Will I regret buying the G75 from BESTBUY instead of buying one from newegg or tigerdirect? I'm not HUGE into overclocking and benchmarking. I just want a stellar laptop which can play modern games on HIGH settings. Should I just head down to BESTBUY and get the model you got? Or is the G75VW-TS72 THAT much better?

    Thanks! Congrats on your new toy!

    Can you use that to calculate the wattage under 3dmark11 or 3dmarkvantage or 3dmark06 etc. I want to see if it takes 100w or so. If not then I will just wait for notebookcheck.:)

    If you want to hear and feel temps run furmark(i think someone can correct me) it's the extreme test, which should make your cpu downclock to stay at stable temps.

    Just running normal I'm averaging 36 watts!
    Running 3D Mark Vantage Average is 86 watts!

    I have a Prime Tablet and UltraBook so I could care less about battery life but man that's some low watts for the power of the system!
