Mobile A6-3410MX vs Core 2 Duo P8400

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Need to see some benches, probably WEI score too, of A6-3410MX vs comparable Core 2 Duo CPU, I'm in doubt whether to swap my lappie for another one with A6-3410MX / 6620G (current specs C2D @2.4Ghz 2.7Turbo, Nv 9600M GT)

I know the 6620G is faster than the 9600M GT, and has Dx11, but the CPU worries me, also I've heard bad things about Llano when you load both the CPU and the GPU.

Is quad A6 @1.6 2.3Turbo faster than Dualcore C2 @2.4 2.7Turbo ?

The A6 will be faster since it is a quad core in newer multiple threaded applications. For these A6 CPU, you can also overclock them with the software below. redface.gif

K10stat

also i have a hp lappy nd luckily enough i got a good processor and i have a stable oc of 2.7ghz and 3.1ghz turbo boost and similar voltage levels, with temp maxing out at 65 degrees celsius on stress tests. so yeah AMD, but forget about llano now get trinity.

I managed to pick up one of Acer A6 laptop (Link) for $400 new. At first I was under impressed, then I installed K10stat and wow, What a difference. I dropped the voltage a lot, then bumped it to a constant 2.3ghz. It will play BF3 on low with more than playable frame rates.

I would go with the A6
