Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Sa 3650


The Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Sa 3650 is a laptop with a twist: at first, it's your regular 13.3-incher, running Windows Vista with a healthy AMD X2 processor, 4GB of RAM and 320GB of hard disk space. But plug in the accompanying GraphicBooster box and...

It's hard to see a market for this: with all the expense and cabling clutter it requires, you're far better off buying a gaming laptop with all the specs built in, or just a full blown desktop. Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Sa 3650 is tagged with Fujitsu,...

Radeon HD 3650 Showdown - ASUS vs. HIS


Just last week, we posted an evaluation of a Radeon HD 3650 card by Diamond Multimedia, where said manufacturer decided to one-up ATI's reference specifications by raising the amount of on-board memory to a full one gigabyte. The results,...

Top card in our testing suite ; 512 MB buffer ; Quieter operation ; Comparatively easier to find and buy

Dual-slot cooler for mid-level performance ; Higher Idle temps

Performance Summary: This could have been a much closer showdown if ASUS had shipped the EAH3650 TOP with an additional 256MB of memory. As it stands now, the two cards are tweaked to similar speeds and as such performance was nearly identical, but...
