Get ready gamers, AMD has announced the Radeon HD8970M graphics card for laptops. If you thought the Radeon HD8870M was pretty sweet: the new HD8970M has double the stream processors, and more than double the single and double precision compute power. The card will be featured in the new MSI GX70 gaming laptop. AMD claims the HD8970M is between 12 and 54 percent faster than the NVidia GTX 680M, depending on the game tested. Tomb Raider and BioShock Infinite particularly benefit from the new Radeon card, when compared to the NVidia GTX 680M.
The new MSI GX70 will run on an AMD quad core A10 processor with the Radeon HD8970M graphics card. It supports Eyefinity multi-display technology and has a 17" full HD 1920 x 1080 anti-glare LCD. The notebook has fast networking, Sound Blaster Cinema audio and a keyboard designed by SteelSeries. And yes, we'll be reviewing the GX70!
