E2-1800 vs Celeron B820: Which CPU will play Videos better? Tags: CPUs Celeron Video Last response: December 29, 2012 1:33 PM in CPUs Share vazurahan December 29, 2012 10:50:29 AM I'm buying a laptop and need help choosing. One is cheaper and is low power one is a bit more expensive. I know the Celeron is better in terms of raw CPU power but since the E2-1800 is an APU which supposed to have a better GPU could somehow play videos better (1080p .MKV and MP4 files to be exact.) There are no benchmarks for the Celeron B820 so I checked on the B815 instead with just 200MHz difference with B820. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Celeron-B815-Noteboo... vs http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-E-Series-E2-1800-Noteb... Their Video Card Benchmarks. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-Sandy-Br... vs http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-7340.70636.0... The problem is that I don't know which benchmark to look at to know which plays Videos better. Both streaming and files at 1080p. Is the CPU more important for playing videos? Or the GPU?
