I actually do care about gaming performance. And if I want to step away from League of Legends and play something like Diablo 3 or Dota2 or Heroes of Might and Magic 7, I'm end up feeling very disappointed. Even Heroes of the Storm performs poorly even with all the settings turned to low.

I basically have a "docking station" with external keyboard+mouse, couple external storage hard drives, usb-to-lan adaptor, and 1600x1200 monitor plugged in to my laptop. (Wireless on Radius Is crap)
I fully expected 8800p fulfilling my low-expectation gaming, but it have not.

Have we came up with any way to improve performance of that APU? I still have original 4GB of 1600 RAM, but I've upgraded my 750GB hard drive to 240 SSD.



PS. Glad to see 8800 tread is still alive.

PPS. What's up with Germany getting all the sweetest AMD hardware? (Shouldn't it be Texas?)

Unfortunately there haven't been any advancements that I'm aware of. I'm still waiting on availability of the Lenovo Y700. Some of the German treads are following a few Acer models that supposedly have the 35W FX-8800P but I haven't seen any proof of this. As a caveat, I don't speak German (only English, French, and some Japanese) so I just scanned the posts and followed some of the links.

But what can I do now? Aside from limiting start-up applications and turning down graphic settings? Will 8GB of 2133 memory give me 2% boost? 10%? It's not bad - as low as 33 bucks, though I'm not a RAM expert - that model probably sucks, but will it be a waste for this weak system? SSD was kind of mando. And I knew it would help. But I remember couple months ago reading Maximum PC with interview about Carrizo performance, where it should have been 65% better than Kaveri. I know I'm naïve, but I was very impressed, especially since number of transistors didn't rose all that much.

The thing is laptop doesn't even get warm and produces lukewarm performance.

PS. I did hear, that 15W Carrizo can't even use anything over 1600.

It won't give you anything, since you're tdp-limited. Carrizo needs higher TDP to run 2133mhz ram. Sadly.

Getting dual RAM sticks should help but the Stilt and others have confirmed that RAM speed is locked at 1600 MHz at 15W TDP so you won't observe all the bandwidth that the system is technically capable of providing. Until someone comes out with an update to the Kaveri or BrazosTweaker, I think all that can be done is to streamline windows, ensure up to date drivers are used, and upgrade to dual SO-DIMMs. Getting a laptop cooling pad may also help a little as people have reported that performance throttles a bit as temperatures get higher.

Apart from battery life and touch-pad, the laptop is pretty good for this price (~500€) and has no direct competitor to my opinion.

Battery life is a minus, but well I think I'll buy it within the two next weeks. Want it for a birthday at the beginning of november.

It may be possible to buy a better battery on a tier website? (and still compatible).


(btw thanks for the test, really glad to have been able to read it smile.gif. Was waiting for more input on this laptop)


EDIT: sorry guys, won't be able to review it myself, just bought another available in France. i5 5200u + R7 m360 FHD, 1To, 8go for 500€.
