    BIG BUMP for this. THANK YOU SO MUCH for this information. I've been waiting and waiting for these benchmarks and here it is.

    Welp, looks like the 6490 is boosted by the GDDR5 and is NOT THAT bad (relatively of course haha). I know in OpenGL benchmarks it beat the 330m. I saw in CoD4 that the 330m beat it out. But yeah, that's great to see the 6490 doing okay. Great for anyone not serious into gaming but looks like it will do some minor gaming. I also am hoping to be getting the high res screen. Looks like it'll be fine for SC2 and WoW and D3 in the future for me.

    The vantage score is the more telling score as that's the better GPU indicator. It scores right along with the 330m, still not as good but definitely not as far behind the 330m as I thought. Sweet. The quad core will help carry it.

    From everything I've seen, it appears that the 330m is a decent amount faster than the 6490, but obviously the new quad core processors will help with the new weaker GPU.
