Change to better CPU but worse GPU? P3D

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have an MSI GE62-6QE: Intel i5 Quadcore 2.3Ghz - 3.2Ghz (6300HQ) / NVIDIA GTX 965M 2GB GDDR5 / 8GB RAM DDR4 / 1 TB HDD

Now I have a chance to pay more 100€ and get this HP: Intel I7 Quadcore 2.6Ghz - 3.5Ghz (6700HQ) / NVIDIA GTX 950M 4GB DDR3 / 8GB RAM DDR3L (which I don't know what's the difference) / 128 GB SDD and 1TB HDD

 

Basically, everything seems better, except for the GPU.

For Prepar3D, will the HP have better performance than the MSI, being that it has a lower GPU but higher CPU?

 

(I'm also a little concerned about the brands, HP vs MSI in "gaming" (I know it's not gaming but you unterstand))

Yes, for FSX or P3D the 950M will be better actually due to the 4Gig of memory.

To be completely honest it sounds like a sidegrade vs an upgrade. I wouldn't pay $100 for maybe a 1-2 FPS dif.

Good point. Laptops stink as gaming rigs, you're left always wanting more.

well, if it's better, but will make almost no difference in FPS, then I'm going to save my 100 bucks.

 

what about the difference from i5 to i7? Won't it make a considerable difference?
