Hi,

I'm going to buy a new laptop and I'm supposed to work on OpenCL. Thus, I'd like to find a list of best GPU for laptop. I'm considering also a MacBook Pro. Is Nvidia 330M good enough ?

Thanks

"Good enough" is such a relative term :)

For Laptops with NVIDIA GPUs, you should be okay, but check here:

I believe AMD has a similar page, but I don't have it bookmarked. A 330M should be fine. I have a 360M in mine and it gives comparable performance for my desktop work - I use my laptop for the development work, but for profiling, I use the desktop. This is due to the high-precision clock timers, and variable CPU speeds can affect that - desktops keep a pretty constant speed, compared to laptops which can throttle up or down.
