I bought an HP Silver 17.3 inch with the AMD A10 and 8gb of ram. I got it mainly for a general use laptop, but I was suprised to see that I could run Dead Space on full 1600 by 900 res with high settings. I can play all the Band of Brothers games and The last doom on full settings. Doom runs on 120 fps. I'm sure this thing wouldn't play the newest COD on high settings, but I'm amazed by its performance. For a $500 Walmart computer I am super excited. I am going to get back into playing Counterstrike again. This renewed my interest in PC gaming. I am mainly an Xbox one guy.
a laptop with a10 is better for gaming without a secondary GPU. i7 is better for apps, such virtual machine macOS
As a programmer / developer / design student / architech, the i7 is much better than the a10, no?
Intel Money
amd never win this competition in ths site
Its funny how no one mentions the AMD processor's Radeon HD graphics actually works with the latest HD games... while the Intel does not. The AMD is much better for gaming and graphics... no one gives a shit about how quickly a computer can do a math function since they already do that well....unless they work for NASA
You missed the point.
I'm not talking about costs. I'm saying L2 + L3 is a benefit over just L2.
Doesn't change the fact that the Intel processor has a better design that incorporates L3 as well. Having more L2 in this instance is not a benefit.
L2 cache is faster than L3. I will prefer add more L2 cache than L3. L2 is pricier than L3. Instead of adding L3 i will add another core or more GPU cores.
They have to cut costs somewhere justimagine had they included the L3 there would be no comparison. But more cost
Man I used to love AMD, but my i7 4810mq slaps the shit out of any mobile chip AMD has or will bring out into the market for the next 3 years.
Really Bob don't make me laugh...a grammar error anyone can do it... and you don't know anything about the crap that Intel is... that's it
You can't even use proper grammar, I really doubt you had any substantial job at Intel.
Intel sucks... I use to work at Intel and I say AMD is better than Intel... Intel is just marketing at all not quality...
Price, Price, Price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Price, Price, Price................!!!!!! :) Intel sucks!!!
You guys specify the A10 as having a benfit of more L2 cache per core but you don't specify it has zbsolutely zero L3 cache where the i7 4700MQ has 6MB? More L2 isn't a benefit if you don't have L3!!
but who needs cpu for gaming?
forget AMD CPU worst option for gamers
amd much better due to its price efficiency....
There is no program that does it properly, so you need to do it directly with PCI config space writes. I use BAR-EDIT on the richland laptop I have access to. The way the method works is you just limit the number of P-states the processor is allowed to use. PScheck can do this, but it neglects changing what P-state the CPU goes into C6 in, which is set by default to a state that is no longer available, thus breaking the top turbo bin. B0D24F3xDC clear bits 9 and 10 (in english: on bus 0, device 24, function 3, offset 0xDC, make bits 9 and 10 equal to 0) To then fix top turbo: B0D24F3xA8 clear bits 30 and 31 These changes net a consistent 9-12% raw performance gain in multithreaded programs. In games the difference is actually more noticeable since without this fix the CPU will randomly drop as low as 1.6ghz for me, which is just flat out dumb and causes major stutter.
how do you lock the APU at 3.2ghz? Did i miss some settings?
The A10 5750m only works yet at 2.75 GHz Max. you can lock it at 3.2 GHz and you will feel a big performance boost. When AMD unlocks the A10 5750m to lock it at 3.5 GHz it will be much better than an I5 3230m ;) AMD APU´s are not bad im happy with my MSI GX60 BF4 with mantle is great i play on ultra settings. Avg 53 FPS Max. 106 Min. 28 when you play on high you get a crazy boost. : Min. 37 Avg. 72 Max 132. on mid : Min. 45 Avg. 89 Max. 143 So who says GX60 is bad ?!
