Even at its age, still a great laptop graphics card that remains able to play most new AAA games at 1080p60 if not very slightly below that. Excellent overclocker if you have the cooling and don't mind flashing the vBIOS.

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