a 5 Year old graphics card, Still a beast, Running Modern games (eg. Cyberpunk with 50+ FPS) This Mobile GPU is the Best (In my opinion), Cheap, Good GPU.

Very good GPU considering its age. Capable of 1080p gaming at medium settings (or even high for competitive games like Overwatch) without issues.

I kinda have like the AMD drivers more, because they are cheaper and function almost the same


Excellent

I've had a laptop with it for 5 years and only now do I really feel the need to replace it. For a mobile GPU it was REALLY GOOD. I've had barely any issues and performance was admirable.


Poor

Kinda glitchy. Heats up a lot but with a powerful fan it holds up. After all this time it still is pretty powerful.

It is not as powerful as it was back in 2014
