What Combination of CPU & GPU ??

Here's the story folks.  Like others I am trying to get a laptop for around €500 but there seems to be a choice that needs to be made.

 

A weaker CPU such as the A4 or A6 from AMD and a dedicated GPU

 

or

 

A stronger APU like the A10-5750 with the integrated 8650 GPU.

 

Which would you get and why.  

Nothing to see here - move along.

Would you take an A8-4500 + 8570 or the A10-5750  ??

Well the first question you have to ask yourself is what are you actually going to be using this for, if you are after gaming you might be better with a dedicated GPU as although the power consumption will be higher, the frame rates for you game will more than likely be better. 

 

if you plan on doing multi core things like editing on it, you would be better with an APU as you will have the performance to throw at it, It depends on what you want to do with it to be honest. 

 

Hope This Helps

I am more experience with Intel CPUs in laptops, but i would allways go with the better CPU. I ahve a  laptop with a i3 2130 2.1 GHz, no boost. and it sucks at gaming. A strong CPU is important.

who cares...

It will be used as a general purpose laptop with some light gaming. Minecraft, Borderlands and Need for Speed.

see if its more gaming, a dedicated GPU will make all the difference, i would personally go for something like that as although its only light gaming it could still help. I would say however it might be worth looking at some of the reviews for the chips FPS in gaming scenarios.

 

Hope This Helps
