I personally haven't had a problem with this GPU, and I've been able to run some pretty graphic intensive games on high settings. I will admit, it is rather pricy though.


Poor

works well and handles great on most games but can’t go super hard on the graphics with graphically demanding games

for mobile gaming, if you can fine a laptop with this gpu plus anything around or above an i5 5700 it's honestly a very capable gpu

something is wrong when 650 is better even against 970m

It WAS a ok mobile card.


Excellent

Honestly, at the moment, if you're going budget for laptop gaming, it will do its job and it will do it very well. This graphics card will run most games that you want it to run, at mostly high settings, and other games will run at max. As for around three or four years ago, this graphics card was very powerful for all types of gaming and could perform most tasks with ease. It compares with a GTX 1050Ti which during the time of this card was pretty good.
