Anyway, I was so disheartened, I closed it and can't find it anymore....
So the 110 would be even worse.... not good times for getting the new dx20s if you're a gamer...
I saw that review too, I believe it's here:http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,1943316,00.asp
In that article, the D820 has a 3DMark05 of 1924 and the Acer TravelMate 8204WLMi (Radeon X1600) has a 3DMark05 score of 4393.
However, if you look at the Thinkpad T60, it has a Radeon X1400 and a score of 2082.
1924 is not a *bad* score on 3DMark05. That's the kind of score a desktop Radeon 9600 would put out with a 2GHz Athlon 64.
If you browse the Futuremark ORB, you can see that the types of video cards that put out 1900s on laptops are the Mobility 9600/9700/X600/X1400.. all of those score 1700-2000 on 3DMark05. I would lump the Quadro NVS 120 into that category.
