15 inch APU notebooks with higher than 1366 x 768 res?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've looked around several times and so far I've not found a single laptop in the 15 inch market that uses the A10's w/ the 8650G that has a 1080p or even 900p resolution. Why is this?

Here you go! biggrin.gif 1080p A10 Richland (just FYI, you should wait for Kaveri at this point)

No, there aren't many decent APU laptops. And the few decent ones seem to get delayed or don't come to the US.

That's a trinity notebook, not richland.

Is there a reason the good ones dont come to the U.S.? I would think they'd be a massive hit in the entry level gaming market. I'm looking for a thin / light 15 inch or smaller notebook that can game as well, but from what I can tell i'm limited to either crappy resolution laptops with an A10 or haswell laptops that cost twice as much and require a dedicated card to be any good at gaming.

You realize Trinity uses the exact same silicon as Richland? From what I understand, it's basically a rebrand and a minor clock speed boost.

ATM the haswell GPU is nipping at Trinity/Richland's heels. And ya, as sad as it is, that pretty much sums up the market in it's current state... IMHO you should wait for Kaveri like me. Unlike richland, it'll give us a significant performance bump (Steamroller, GCN, and it's the first "big" APU to not use the 32nm process).

That's not true at all. The haswell may completely dominate the richland in cpu performance, especially single thread, but it's not even a challenger for the richland's igp, which for me, is what matters. I don't do ANY sort of professional work that's cpu intensive, so haswell's superior cpu cores don't really mean anything to me, since there's probably zero visible difference in usage while browsing web, youtubing, listening to music, or watching movies/shows.

Not faster, not even close, but Haswell is absolutely in the same ballpark as Trinity, and the gap shrinks a bit when the process advantage comes into play at lower power envelopes.



Compared to SB/IB, Llano and Trinity/Richland were great at launch. These days against haswell... not so much. And subjectively, my overclocked A8-3500M laptop just doesn't cut the mustard in major games at 1366x768 anymore, and it isn't that far behind trinity/richland. Ironically, I think llano (after OC) had a better CPU than trinity, but also had much slower GPU.

The article you linked says otherwise. I still see A10's stomping the HD 4600 igp by a landslide in every bench there save for cloud gate which is cpu intensive and to be expected. The HD 4600 doesn't even reach playable frame rates in most of the bench's shown. If we were talkin the 5200 Iris pro igp, then maybe yeah, but as far as I know the only non apple notebook to even have that atm is the clevo w740. I might also note, that the tray price for the lowest end of the haswell line that has the 5200 iris pro, is $440 usd, JUST for the processor. That's within $1-200 of an entire richland machine at retail, and still doesn't beat it.
