AMD A10 4600M 

Released May, 2012
  • 2.3 GHz
  • Quad core

The AMD A10 4600M is the first processor to incorporate the Piledriver technology and is also one of the most expected pieces of hardware of 2012. The chip itself sports four cores, each clocked at 2.3GHz, but are easily capable of going all the way up to 3.2GHz. The exciting thing about this chip is that AMD stirred the ultrabook marked with it, making it one of the thinnest and smallest chips on the market in 2012, while also managing to squeeze in all the necessary features such a piece of technology needs. The 4600M also manages to squeeze in an amazing GPU from the Radeon HD 7660G series. This small chip provides an astounding combination of low power consumption, performance and price.

I have Gateway NV52L with same processor. it rocks.
Why are you so salty? The Envy M6 is a better than average computer for small gaming like garrys mod, it is not built for such a graphic heavy game such as Arma.
wtf kind of laptop did you get i have these same specs and can't run arma on med to high i can barley run it on low cause of faggots like you guys i bought this 700 dollar laptop holy shit was this a bad idea.
I agree with you
I have the AMD A10-4600M in my HP Envy M6 laptop. It is very nice and runs at around 1.60 GHz when using just the internet (like now) and around 3.00 GHz when gaming. All of the games that I play (Garry's Mod, Counter-Strike: Source, Arma 2) all work great with the AMD Radeon HD 7660G. They all run around high to medium graphics quality. Very pleased with the AMD A10-4600M processor. I'm glad I did my research when looking for laptops. This laptop was the best I could find at the time; and money well spent.
