My System Specs


This isn't new for AMD or nVidia. The Radeon X2300 was probably the more impactful of the renaming, because it rebranded a DX9 card to look like a DX10 card's name. As for nVidia, there's the good ol' 8800 series rebranded so many times over.

I did the same thing looking at mobile CPUs - good thing I did because I found out the A8-4555M is vastly inferior to the A8-4500M. I just recently found that the mobile space has dual-core i7s floating around as well. I'm laptop shopping right now, and I ended up opening enough tabs to compare all the mobile bits that Firefox started compacting the tabs it on a 1080p monitor...
