were the tests done with the processor overclocked or not?
Hi Danielle. The two processors are very close in performance, but the A10-8700P is significantly faster when in a low-power mode. I'm unable to find out what configurable TDP setting ASUS has used; it can range from 12 W to 35 W, with the latter giving you better performance from both the processor and graphics. Irrespective of this, the A10-8700P uses a newer architecture, which generally means better performance at a slightly lower core clock speed, which is why one is 2.50 GHz, and the other is 1.80 GHz (not including turbo frequencies). In short, I say go with the X555DA-WS11. Edit: I forgot to mention that you might be able to alter the configured TDP setting in the computer's BIOS menu. For ASUS computers, you can get to that by pressing F2 while the ASUS logo is displayed when the machine is first turned on. If you're going to be doing demanding tasks, switch it up to 35 W. For simple tasks like documents in class, you can turn it down to 12 W and you'll get better battery life.
I am looking to buy a new laptop. One has an AMD Quad Core A10-7400P and the other has an AMD Quad Core A10-8700P. Which one would you recommend? I am a student and I will be using Medisoft software and Quickbooks. Which one would be better for my needs? These are the two computers I am looking at.Thanks!
You could probably correct a lot if things on the site, but you'd waste far too much of your time. This site isn't reliable at all.
Correction. According to AMD the over clock speed is 3.2 GHZ (same as the turbo clock speed) not 1.8 GHZ
