But how to overclock intel celeron n2830 pls help ive been searching all over the net
intel is crap until or unless its a core 2 quad or above rest is all shit but amd my man u must be out of your mind just to ditch it once all games become quad core forget about intels i3 and pentiumG its amd all the way then .no benchmarks results dont apply in games trust me
here they go again, Intel against AMD, Ford against Chevy, Apple against Samsung, etc... GIVE US A BREAK, would you? We want more options, better competition rather than shared monopoly...
No, Actually you are wrong. I, am not stupid. So what does that say about you. AND, it has nothing to do with BIOS, as HP support assistant have regular BIOS updates!!. Im talking from my own experiences. 4 laptops, with Intel Celeron from 1.6's to 2.1's, W7's, and W8.1's, all run like a dream, and the 2 laptops, both with AMD processors 1.4 & 1,5, do not. In fact, on startup, or waking from sleep, the CCC, (Catalyst Control thing) will crash n restart for the 1st 2-3 minutes before it gets going. AND,to compare the same task with each processor, Scanning or Converting videos, takes at least twice as long to do with an AMD Cpu. It aint Bios, it aint RAM, it is the AMD processors. AND, if you read my 1st post, you will note that Im not including Hi-end AMDs (As stated above in brackets) as I cannot comment on what I haven't used. An AMD 1.4-1,5 cannot run a W8 pc properly. Even with 6GB RAM. Your AMDs, you are "Testing" must me quad core or something at least better than the cheap rubbish they put in the cheapo PCs. Again, I am not stupid. I am telling of my experiences, with the PCs Ive used. And I don't have A clue, I have many clues. And with that, I have my conclusions. As a PC user.
You are Stupid. AMD runs Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 without a break, it runs very well, i know this because i test several computers, and the N2830 is actually one of the lowest end processors of the market. The thing you need to see and i bet u didn't do was to update bios, drivers, etc. So, you have no clue about what you are saying. PEACE
Such a cool site. Just the stuff I wanna know. Ive had several laptops, but Im only a latecomer to the internet. (Fast learner, but) My 1st PCs`were Compaq Presario CQ57 (4GB Ram) with Intel 2.1, and 1.6 in the other. The 1.6 was 1yr or so newer, but seems just as fast, converting vids, scans etc. BUT, When I got an HP 14", 6GB Ram, and an AMD 1.5 cpu, the AMD couldn't cope. I'd stare at Resource moniter, and it was plain to see. Scans would take 8hrs+, Converting vids, 2-3 times as long etc. My Mum also had a W8.1 with AMD 1.4, and it was as bad or worse. Last week, I got an 8.1, 4GB Ram, but with an INTEL N2830. 2.16. AMAZING!! Got my Mum one too, as it was such a difference. CONCLUSION: AMD Cannot run a W8 pc. (Unless its a Hi-Spec) As I know that even my 3yr old Celeron 1.6, is just wonderful, compared to the 1yr old AMD 1.5. - Srry, I don't have exact CPU model numbers off hand, except the new Intel N2830. Wonderful, I love Intel, and I will not touch another pc with an AMD. Whatever the circumstances. - All just my opinions and observations. Im certainly no expert, just very observant. Love the idea of this site, Well Done! And, Thanks for allowing me to voice my opinions. Cheers, Brent Rossiter, Christchurch, New Zealand.
