Default x1400 mobility vs. FireGL v5200 mobility for gaming

Hi,
I've to decide between a Thinkpad T60 with x1400 mobility and a T60p with FireGL V5200 mobility, and I'm wondering about gaming performance. I tried to find some comparable benchmarks for those two cards, namely Doom3 benchmarks, but I failed.

I've found many "firegl is not meant for gaming" posts, but also some "recent games like Doom3 run fine on the 5200", whatever that means in fps...

Can someone help me make up my mind? Any Doom3 benchmarks for the 5200 and the X1400 mobility? Anyone having a v5200 who can tell about games like Doom3, if they run at all, how fast etc.? I'm asking for Doom3 because that's what I want to play ;-)

It can't be impossible to compare those two cards for gaming, can it?

cu,
Frank

I don't think FireGL even supports gaming. My friend has a workstation type video card for his laptop, and he says there's a lot of problems with games on them because they just don't optimise them for workstation.

They scream at rendering things though.

Ok, so it sounds like the x1400 is the safer choice :-)

I've had all kinds of problems running games on an ATI Mobility FireGL V5200 over the last 2 weeks. I'd suggest getting something else if you are going to play games. There's not much support for the FireGL cards for games.
