I like to buy a budget laptop which i am going to use for upcoming games like GTA 5, Assasins Creed 4, Watch Dogs, Call of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4. will these games work on low settings on AMD Quad-Core A8-4500M processor with AMD Radeon HD 7640G/7670M Dual GPU (2 GB DDR3 dedicated), 4GB Ram.

will the 1.9 ghz affect the gaming? I no need to play on high settings, i just need to play on medium and low settings. will this laptop do that?

Please suggest me whether this processor and graphics work for future games on low settings.

1.9 GHZ ok for gaming? 4gb ram ok? becoz the upcoming games are heavy and i need to play in low settings only. will it work perfectly.


HP g6-2302ax Laptop

AMD Quad-Core A8-4500M 1.9 GHZ

AMD Radeon HD 7640G/7670M Dual GPU (2 GB DDR3 dedicated)

4GB Ram


Please answer elaborate.

That will do pretty good for gaming. It's certainly not a top-end gaming laptop, but it is ideal for a budget gaming laptop. You shouldn't have problems playing the games you mentioned on medium to high settings at 1366 X 768 resolutions.

thanks a lot for answering. should i do some settings for both gpu to work or will it join together for games. becoz dual graphics means will both the graphics work at the same time? also 1.9 ghz is no problem?

Nope that is a low end laptop for next gen games. Cpu is very low end so really no chance for gta 5 or battefield 4. Graphics card is like half the speed of my 650m. I would try to get an i5 3210m with something like a gt 650m or higher for those games as these are next gen games.


and that laptop would cost a whole lot more. the OP said ... Budget laptop. there is no i5 with dedicated graphics in the budget category.

To the OP:

If you can find an A10 with dual graphics in your price range you should be better off. 1.9 ghz is pretty low for next gen games, even on low settings it might not be playable. if you can find an A10 (which would most likely be running at 2.3 with a 2.7 ghz turbo) you'd be better off but not necessarily good enough. Next gen games could be very cpu demanding (GTA IV was a horrible game for being so poorly optimized for cpus so GTA V might have the same problems).

As far as setting up dual graphics it is pretty easy. Just right click the desktop, select configure graphics, under the gaming options in AMD Vision there will be gaming performance. click on that and you can set up dual graphics.

It will usually ask you to configure dual graphics on a per game basis after it detects something runs in 3d graphics. this is good since dual graphics can cause problems in some games and give lower frame rates that just running the 7670m alone.

Good luck.

thanks a lot guys, so how about this laptop with amd a10, it is little bit costly than my budget.

APU Quad Core A10 5750m

512 MB AMD Radeon HD 8650G (Integrated) and 2 GB ATI Sunpro HD 8570 Graphics (Dedicated)

8gb ram

That laptop would definitely fare much better than the first one. Again it is hard to say how well it will do with next gen games but i don't see why it won't be able to handle them at low settings, with the possible exceptions of BF4 multiplayer and GTA V (again, the cpu might not be able to handle either very well)

Thanks for giving the links. i cannot buy the lenovo ideapad because it is costly. I can buy the i3 which you suggested, but what is my doubt is i3 don't have graphics power, so the game should work only with 1gb Amd radeon 8750m graphics which comes with that laptop. it is 1gb only. But this model amd a10 5750m has 512mb integrated graphics AMD Radeon HD 8650G and 2gb dedicated ATI SUN PRO 8570 Graphics.

First of all the ati sun pro 8570 and amd radeon 8570m both same graphics card? becoz the names are different. PLZ EXPLAIN THIS FIRST.

So amd a10 looks Powerful than the i3 laptop. am i right dude? please suggest me a good amd config budget laptops.

Sorry for the lengthy doubts. please take time and explain

Actually i have a very good laptop with me now. It is Lenovo Ideapad Intel core i5 2450m, 8gb ram, Intel HD 3000. It is working fantastic. I was playing new games like splinter cell blacklist, saints row 4 on low settings. But recently i installed alan wake pc game and it was lagging due to insufficient graphics power of intel hd 3000. so only i was worried about upcoming releases of games. i was not aware of the dedicated graphics when i bought that laptop. so i thought of buying a laptop mainly for games and this time i need to buy a good laptop with graphics power for games.

I should not make any mistake in buying laptop this time atleast

Answer to each questions.

1.you told that i3 has 8750m and it destroys the 8650g and 8570. but Amd a10 processor also have ati sun pro 8750 2 gb dedicated, then both are same right?

2. Core i3 3120m Passmark benchmark score is 3281 and Amd a10 5750m is 3499. So amd a10 score is high right?

3.ati sun pro 8570 and amd radeon 8570m both same graphics card? becoz the names are different. PLZ EXPLAIN

4. if i buy i3, then it will work only with 8750m 1gb graphics, becoz i3 have intel hd 4000. But if i buy amd 10 it has 512 MB AMD Radeon HD 8650G (Integrated) and 2 GB ATI Sunpro HD 8570 Graphics (Dedicated). so amd a10 can work with dual power graphics, so it will be more right?

So guys please explain me one by one for each questions. please.

That will completely choke on games, 1.9 Ghz is terrible for gaming.

Sad to see u didn't go with an amd. the a8 overclocked would have been cheaper and done a lot better. Not having a ssd is what will cost u the most performance loss

If you can go for the a10 5750m+8570m then it will be best solution, because it can handle all the current generation games at full resolution with medium to high graphics.If you want more frame rates then you can reduce the resolution.

You will need to get a program from amd called amd overdrive. it basically overclocks the proccessor to run faster. I have the same specs and can mostly run gta 4 on pretty good settings on low ( i havent tried any other game yet)

For the a8 4500m, to make it game ready upgrade it with 16gb ram. That should upgrade the experience index across the board, except for hard drive. For that you may want a ssd or if on a budget a better HD, i think like 7400.

Go to amazon and check the review for gateway a8 4500, and you'll see a few reviews, or. Acer 48 4500m and see alot of reviews on how to better the laptop. But generally those two improvements will suffice

It got me playing games like the witcher 1 enhanced, the witcher 2 (on med-low settings) and the likes. Canyourunit def says I can play GTA 4 and 5 (on low settings though)

Btw I have 512 dedicated, and with 16gb ram the comp allocates 4gb instead of 512mb

will removing the battery really help? cus mine cannot take out the battery without unscrewing the whole thing and BTW the model is ASUS X550DP-XX066h.
Also, is an amd a10-5750m with radeon hd 8670m 2gb and radeon hd 8650g or i5 4200u with nvidia geforce 720m better?
