    Hi guys im looking at two laptops with pretty much the same config except for the graphics card .. dell offers the GT540 M 2gb .. and hp offers the AMD RADEON HD 6770M (1gb)... i was hoping i cud get some feedback as to which card is better... because on other forums the GT 540M hasnt got great reviews .. saying it wont be able to utilize its 2gb of vram effectively...

    The 6770M is 40 to 50 percent faster.

    There's no comparison.

    But what about the 1 gb of extra vram .... does it not have any effect at all ?

    AMD 6770m smokes the gt540m. The gt555m even looses to it, very slightly though.

    Though if you are playing at higher resolutions I think that gap will widen.

    It would get narrower, if for some reason you wanted to hook up an eyefinity setup or the equivalent with nvidia and then run on 16xx AA then the video memory probably would come into play since 1GB might be a bit cramped for something of that scale. This is all hypothetical though because with either of those GPU's if you tried anything like that on a recent game then you'd be looking at a slideshow.
