My HP dv2z has:

AMD Turion NeoX2 Dual-Core L625 1.6 GHZ

512 MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410 graphics chip.


I'm also interested in the HP tx2z that has:

AMD Turion X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processor ZM-87 (2.4GHz, 2MB L2 Cache)

ATI Radeon(TM) HD 3200 Graphics with 64MB Display Cache Memory.


I don't know much about processors or graphic chips, but the tx2z has a faster cpu (2.4 GHz vs 1.6 GHz). But the tx2z has a less powerful graphic chip with less memory.

So based on these two components, which would offer the best graphics and game performance?

Pure gaming wise - yours will perform better. The other graphics chip is barely better than any standard integrated chip you'd find in a basic laptop, so yours for the moment is better. Eventually, it would become outdated because of games becoming more intensive, but for now it's the better of the two.

If you are looking for a new lappy, we can post recommendations. All we need is a budget and what you are going to be using it for. The more specific the better.

Thanks for the info. Kinda what I thought.

It seems odd that HP would bring out a new 12" performance notebook and offer it with a less powerful graphics chip than the notebook it replaces.

freak just said gaming wise. What HP did was balance the two CPU and GPU. Gave you a better CPU/worse GPU combo instead of a weak CPU\good GPU that you currently have.

If you are looking for home usage, this is fine.

Whereas if you looking for work usage, go for their business series eg. the ProBook or the Elite Book as that business models built quality is better than general consumer series!!
