It's still a low 3dmark05 score 2700ish IMO for a 6800 with 256 MB of RAM. For a laptop that cost almost as twice as much as mines, it should beat it by a significant amount, but I guess my logic is flawed hehe.
The MR9800 has a clock speed of 350/299 I believe.
THe clock on my 6800 with 128 megs of ram is 325/700 and it gets 3200 in 3dmark05
The clock on my 6800 gt with 256 MB is 350/1000 gets 3dmark score of 4800ish I believe with no overclocking.
What's the clock on the 7700? 250/600... 150 clock speed advantage? I don't think so, more like a 100 however the 7700 memory clock is at 600 vs the 299 of the MR9800.
