Reviews for the Asus K52JR-SX059V
Core i3 Office Assistant. Intel's new processors are infiltrating inexpensive all-rounders. The K52JR has an i3-350M beside an ATI HD 5470 under its hood. A middle class GPU and a Core i3 processor without turbo boost - a perfect couple? We'll clarify, what Intel's smallest Arrandale range is capable of and if the 15.6 incher is a feasible office and multimedia notebook.

Designed for both work and play, the Asus K52Jr uses a latest gen Intel Core i3 processor – a real all rounder of a CPU. An allrounder mid-range model, the Asus K52Jr does what it sets out to. Performance and ease of use mean you can use it both for office work and multimedia. We do however regret that the panel is, once again, poor, that the battery life is so short and that its not more portable.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
