Mobile GPU Comparison: GTX 580M versus HD 6990M

The gang at PC Perspective have posted a little mobile GPU comparison today that pits the GeForce GTX 580M against a Radeon HD 6990M.

Mobile graphics cards are really a different beast than the desktop variants. Despite have similar names and model numbers, the specifications vary greatly as the GTX 580M isn't equivalent to the GTX 580 and the HD 6990M isn't even a dual-GPU product. Also, getting the capability to do a direct head-to-head is almost always a tougher task thanks to the notebook market's penchant for single-vendor SKUs.
