E2-1800 vs Celeron B820: Which CPU will play Videos better?

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.

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?

  1. Go with the E2-1800.
    It's CPU component is slower but it's GPU is significantly better.

    Thanks.

    Which benchmark should I be looking at to know the performance on Videos? There's the pcmark thing, Cinemabench, 3DMark etc.
