I have a XMG A522 with the 660m, so my question is what temparature did you get playing WoT on the GPU / CPU? Without even started the battle (v9.0) just staying in the garage turning the view, temp goes up to 76 degree celsius. the fan-control starts to switch to full speed (in an sawtooth on/off style which drives me crazy).
Happy to here from your temps / fan experiences. Peter (=PA=)
remember that WOT is not optimized for multiple cores, and with quad cores having a slower clock speed than dual cores they will face a larger bottleneck than others, its not the graphics cards at fault. Wargaming just hasn't invested in a multi core engine, and thus the processor is the bottleneck for MOST mobile systems.
Both Wargaming.net and Nvidia should be warned about the 680M performance failure vs the 7970M to identify whether an update could occur from either the driver or from WOT to rectify this difference. The performance of the 680M is completely out of line for WOT. Users who purchase an Alienware for WOT customization(the flashing lights) should be aware of the major difference in their choices. What is surprising is the fact that Wargaming.net gamers in Russia use Alienware heavily and didn't notice this difference in the 680M vs 7970M? ...or did they ? Its an astonishing difference. Folks getting the latest video card from Nvidia are expecting to have the best performance on wot and not be blown away from an older nvidia 675M or by the 7970M. Did the new 8.0 rendering nerf the 680M? Or was performance vs the 7970M always that bad relatively. Not only should be looking at explaining the difference between the 680M and AMD but also between the 680M and its predecessors. Degrading performance with newer top of line cards is not cool to see at all.
Tanks a lot. Over 40 million registered users and a bigger E3 stand compared to many (former) top publishers: Wargaming.net shakes up the Free2Play sector with World of Tanks. In order to to investigate the ongoing trend we tested version 8.0 with a variety of notebook GPUs.
