    i've been reading this in a few places..

    I'm sorry for those who are well aware of the difference but video cards is something that i am not familiar with..

    Thanx

    P.S. I'm deciding between i5 refurb or the new i3 i am more interested in graphics power than cpu btw

    The 4850 is likely faster but we can't be 100% sure until we know what the 5670 actually is (is it mobile or desktop and is it underclocked etc)

    I'm awaiting a slew of benchmarks. There is a lot of new hardware in this refresh to check out. CPUs, GPUs and SSD!

    Since the new iMacs are shipping today, these benchmarks will be available in a manner of days.

    The 5670 Desktop:
    775 mhz
    128-bit
    400 steamprocessors

    The 4850 Mobile:
    500mhz
    256-bit
    800 steamprocessors

    The benchmarks I've seen on the 5670 shows that it is a slow dog,
    the Ati 4770 usually beats it by a good margin.

    Hardware.no posted a test where 5670 managed 14 fps in crysis @1680x1080 res... Imagine @ 2560x1440...

    The desktop 4850 managed 26 fps. (I know the iMac has the m version, but the desktop has same amount of steamprocs, but are clocked 125 mhz higher)
