How does AMD's 8970M stack up against Nvidia's 650M or 670M, either solo or in SLI, as seen in the previously reviewed Lenovo laptop?

This A10 is still a "trinity" and not a "richland" model, correct?

Someone goofed and didn't proofread their story, its suppposed to read Radeon 7970M, not 8970M.

Nope. 8970. Try reading the source.

AMD's website only lists a 8870M as the highest model number, no 8970M.

So, a really high-end graphics card coupled with a proc that's competitive with the Core i3?

Also, can somebody tell me what MSI is saying in this sentence: "Full color backlight LED is also embodied (option) for you to choose from more than 1,000 color combinations and five difference scenario modes to have the coolest laptop in Lan parties."

Probably like previous MSI, Alienware and some Clevo laptops where you can customize the keyboard backlighting colour; 5 modes probably mean things like; constantly on, breathing, pulsing/strobe, marquee or smooth gradient changing. (I don't actually know what it is on the MSI but I've seen some customisable backlit keyboards)

Have to agree the processor will probably keep the GPU from truly shining. But knowing MSI's last GX60, it will be still very good value for money.

The A10's are supposed to be on par with the i7 but since no one has actually got their hands on them besides AMD its still up in the air. The fact you guys seem to be missing is that it will play Crysis 3 but again no benchmarks.

The A10 is supposed to be on par with an i7? I hadn't heard this.

In a perfect world, with AMD's goals of heterogeneous computing realized, sure, but otherwise I thought the A10 to be inferior to any i7 worth its salt.

Their AMD's 8350 desktop processor is slightly above i5 range so I'm a bit more puzzled.
