it's a typo both are 25,600 mb/s, maximum bandwidth means the maximum rate at which a processor can read/store data so higher is better. but they are the same if you check intels website
Asus rog G751JY have gtx 980M. G751JL got gtx 965M How 751JL can be better than JY? explain this.
me again. I put some more thought into it.. Does it actually mean the maximum memory slot that can be used for a stick of ram is 12,800mb/s? or maybe I'm way off now.. hah..
can someone explain this to me? It says Maximum bandwidth for 4720/4710 is 12,800 MB/s 25,600 MB/s what is this saying? Because it looks like the 4710 is beating the 4720 in something... But what that is I'm not exactly sure. Thanks to anyone in advance.
No ASUS_ROG_G751JL is better because it has a better GPU. http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-980M-vs-GeForce-GTX-965M
is ASUS_ROG_G751JY better than ASUS_ROG_G751JL?
