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.
