Hi, Could one of you Kind Soul & Experts in the Community please help.
Next week I'll be getting my Asus Pro36SD notebook with an i7-2620M CPU + Nvidia's N12P GV 1G DDR3 VRam + Intel GMA HD Graphic.
Earlier this week the vendor cheated and given me an Asus U36SD notebook claiming with an i7-2620M CPU (but it's a LGA1155 socket/packaging instead of PPGA988/FCBGA1023) + Nvidia'w Geforce GT520M 1G DDR3 VRam + Intel HD Graphic 3000, I've returned to them due to screen quality issue.
Base on your expertise and knowledge, would like to know the following -
1) Does LGA1155 support i7-2620M CPU or was I given another series CPU
2) Which is a better GPU, N12P GV or GT520M & what series/model is N12P GV
3) Is Intel GMA HD & HD 3000 the same graphic
Please help to advise.
The Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2620M has two pacakges types: rPGA988B or BGA1023 and features Intel® HD Graphics 3000
The specifications of the processor are available on this site:
Be aware that Intel® HD Graphics is not the same as the Intel® HD Graphics 2000 or 3000.
The Intel® HD Graphics 2000/3000 is the second generation of integrated graphics integrated in the the new Sandy Bridge processors.
