[notebookcheck] Review AMD A6-1450 APU "Temash" - Page 6

post #51 of 96
Curious, did they ever mention if the laptop is using dual channel memory?(I've forgotten everything in that video)

Because I know the laptop manufacturers love gimping the AMD APUs with low speed or single channel memory, or both.

*edit* wait, it's LIMITED to single channel memory?!?! WHY!?!

then again I guess Temash really is meant for tablets, while Kabini is the more laptop oriented part(I really hope atleast that is dual channel).

http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-8280G.92241.0.html

dat's my source.

 

Just for the sake of adding to this comparison of the HD4000/HD3000 vs this APU in games (from the source you provided)
(low settings)

  • BioShock Infinite: Ivy 44% faster
  • Tomb Raider: Ivy 93% faster
  • Crysis 3: Ivy 138% faster
  • Hitman: Absolution: Ivy 44% faster
  • COD: BO: Ivy 61% faster
  • Dishonored: Ivy 78% faster
  • Counter Strike: Go (they didn't included HD4000):  HD3000: 307% faster
  • Sleeping Dogs: Ivy 42% faster
  • Dirt Showdown: (HD4000 not included):  HD3000 95% faster
  • Diablo 3:  Ivy 85% faster
  • Anno 2070: Ivy 40% faster
  • Skyrim: HD3000: 33% faster
  • Battlefield 3: Ivy 56%

 

 

Just the reality of it

If people didn't hype this thing up so much(Arktikbot, vampirr or whatever) then it probably wouldn't look that terrible in games.

Then again, looking at the benchmarks it would still look fairly terrible versus IVY bridge...

I came across this interesting thread on Notebookreview's forum:

Here's some more info about the 14" HP ProBook 445 Richland-Trinity. I think this model is many steps backwards, HP what were you smoking?! confused.gif Let's look at what this "new" model brings: rolleyes.gif






From the specifications... first the CONS:
1. Only 1366x768 resolution is available (no more 1600x900)
2. 34mm gen 2 ExpressCard slot has been removed (I use mine all the time)
3. Docking port and TRUE docking stations have been removed (USB 3.0 replicators just aren't the same)
4. Secondary battery port has been removed
5. DP++ 1.2 has been replaced by HDMI 1.4a
6. eSATAp (eSATA+USB 2.0 combo) port has been replaced by just USB 2.0 port (i actually use mine on my E425 and 6475b)
7. FireWire 1394a port has been removed
8. 6-cell Lithium-ion 47 Whr (compared to 6-cell 55 Whr of the 6475b)
9. Pointstick with two additional pointstick buttons (for a total of four) has been removed
10. WWAN/mPCIe port has been removed as there aren't any WWAN options available
11. No "top-of-the-line" Richland A10-5750M APU option
12. 12.7mm optical drive has been replaced by a smaller 9.5mm optical drive

Lastly the PROS:
1. Richland APUs and A76M FCH (A70M FCH in the 6475b) also Trinity APUs are available and supported
2. Dual Graphics with the Radeon 8750M albeit with DDR3
3. SDXC/Memory Stick XC card reader
4. Slight slimmer, about the same weight but with "consumer-zed stylish" exterior (this is starting to lose its business feel)
5. Speakers are placed above the keyboard facing your ears


There's way more CONS than PROS, no thanks HP but I'll keep my 6475b thank you. I'm still betting on a drop-in Richland A10. If I wanted Dual Graphics, I'd probably skip this model for sure and NOT recommend it. Shoot i'll recommend the 6475b over this 445. wink.gif


It doesn't matter how great your components are when OEMs keep doing half-*** jobs and making your brand look bad...

adding better quality parts will up the price, putting the products in Intel territory.  AMD does not want to be there.

But watering down laptops and limiting choices makes your brand look bad. Especially when you put a 768p laptop next to a 1080p tablet.

For example, the 6475b gives you the option of selecting a 768p or a 900p screen. That "updated" laptop doesn't give you any options.


I think HP should of simply improved the screen's contrast ratio and updated the BIOS to be compatible with Richland APUs. Would've saved R&D money.

Oh I totally agree with you. As I said before, even Intel's "ultrabook" brand is becoming more and more watered down as OEM's find ways to circumvent the requirements.  So rather than including full SSD's, they'll just include a 4gh cache drive so they can meet that "7 seconds awake" timing and so on.

 

My Asus Zenbook does have a 1080p IPS+ screen.  Personally, everything is a little to small for my liking.  I think 1440x900 would be a good fit. (13 inch screen)

That doesn't look right!?!?

AT CES 2013 we could see Temash prototype tablets playing smoothly DiRT Showdown at 1080p but in notebookchecks review it manages only 15.9 fps at 1024x768 Ultra Low settings !?!?!

It's called a reality check. :P


Even if they bumped up the GPU to a 7970, it's still going to see similar performance with that CPU.

And this architecture is expected to go in your next gen gaming console. 4 jaguar netbook cores can't even compare to a 3317u?

Way to hype.
