Reviews for the Asus K52F

65% ASUS K52F - Aimed at the Average User
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Looking at the K52F’s performance, it’s safe to say that this notebook is not the best performer among the entry-level notebooks that we have seen. Scores are pretty average but that is only if you’re comparing the K52F with other expensive notebooks. At Rs. 28,399 the ASUS K52F definitely offers quite a lot in comparison to many notebooks that are priced at a similar range like the Lenovo IdeaPad Z570. You can get an entry level desktop PC with a little better specifications at this price, but for those looking for a low-budget portable notebook, the K52F turns out to be a good option.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
