Just upgraded my laptop with this cpu, used to have a i5 and wanted a few more cores for VMware and rendering. This cpu is fantastic and even runs a but cooler than the i5 however idk if that's just because of my applying new thermal compound.

What would game performance be like with this and a Radeon HD 6570M? Would games perform better or worse than my current specs? It's been hard finding information on the graphics.
