A8 6410
demm... seriously u guys?... mq is 4 core high performance processor.. of coz will be hot.... try i7 u processor.... i3 is dual core also.... and it is u processor.. mq is dodge ram.... a8 is crv.... i7 u is mercedes... i3 is civic... how to compare...
I donn't know the core temps, as AIDA 64 doesn't supports Beema APUs yet, but i can say that the 6410 in this laptop turboes like a beast, sometimes going up to 2,4GHz, This Lenovo G50-45 is pretty much silent at idle, quiet at normal use and not loud under load
dnt lie bro .. intel does not heat is a total lie ..
a8 is definitely better ..
i have an A8 6410 and trust me its quite good ...doesnt produce much heat. and, more actual cores are always better than threads. turbos upto 2.4
you'll be disappointed. My i7-4700MQ is generally burning hot. I doubt that i3 will be much better, especially when it claims max temp 100
buy ...4010u insteed of a8 6410 ...i used a8 6410 ...n it's producing soo much heat .'' gonna sold it to buy new laptop hv 4010u
If anyone can answer this, I would be greatly appreciative, as I am looking for a laptop and the two I have selected have these two processors. Thanks in advance.
