Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5530G
Crossfire for Everyone. Even if the idea of two graphic cards in one notebook was primarily reserved for high performance bolides, gradually you find models with a dual graphic solution in low priced starting devices. Theoretically, the Crossfire technology from ATI makes it possible to operate two different GPUs parallel to one another. In the following review, you can read of which use the combination of two HD3470 graphic cards are.

Unfortunately, the performance for the Acer Aspire 5530G isn't quite as good as we would have liked it despite the presence of AMD's new Puma platform. It's probably one of our main grouse that AMD has yet to catch up with Intel since the good ol' days where they stood toe to toe with its competitor. Intel's dominance in the mobile market can be attributed to their marketing success with the Centrino branding though the solid performance of their platform does play a part. AMD has always played it closer to the lower end of the budget spectrum, offering decent performance at a competitive price, and this is continued in the Acer Aspire 5530G. Acer is moreover quite well known for its competitively priced offerings and this Puma based Acer Aspire 5530G is no different.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 Hybrid X2: Mobility Radeon HD3470 and chipset mGPU HD 3200 in Crossfire combination.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
AMD Turion X2: The Turion X2 (without 64) is based on the Turion X2 Ultra, but has only 1024 MB L2 Cache and is therefore slower (performance compareable to the old Turion 64 X2). Because of new parts from the K10 architecture, the CPU should be more energy efficient.
Griffin based entry-level dual core processor. The cores are still based on the old K8 architecture (memory controller is newer).
