In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7520G + HD 7670M Dual are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 445M v2.

The HD 7520G was released over a year more recently than the GT 445M, and so the HD 7520G is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 445M.

The GT 445M has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD 7520G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 445M v2 has 144 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7520G + HD 7670M Dual has 736. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 445M is 164 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7520G is 482. The HD 7520G having 318 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 445M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 445M v2 requires 35 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7520G + HD 7670M Dual.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 445M v2 is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 570MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the desktop GeForce GT 450 v4.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 445M v2.
Radeon HD 7520G + HD 7670M Dual is a combination of a Radeon 7520G (integrated graphics) with a Radeon HD 7670M (dedicated).
This combination is called Asymmetric CrossFire and can also lead to Micro Stuttering.
Unfortunately, benchmarks indicate the performance is worse than a single Radeon HD 7670M performing by itself. This might be due to poor driver support.
