Toshiba reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GTS: The 9700M GTS is not based on the G96 (as the GT) but on the G94 core with 48 shaders. PureVideo HD helps the CPU in decoding HD videos.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS SLI: Two 9800M GTS graphics card in SLI mode. The two cards are somewhere between 0-40% faster than a single GTS and need the twice amount of current. As all SLI combinations, micro stuttering can be an issue.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.

Intel Core 2 Extreme: The fastest Core 2 Duo variants of Intel are called Core 2 Extreme. Technically, these processors are based on a Merom/Penryn (X9000) core like all other Core 2 Duo  processors,  too.

QX9300: Expensive mobile Quad Core CPU with a free multiplicator and a TDP of 45 Watt. Due to the large Level 2 cache and the 2.5 GHz the CPU offers a good performance for single and multithreaded applications.

4.3 kg:
