Reviews for the HP Compaq 8510w

HP Compaq 8510w Review
Source: English
The HP Compaq 8510w is the latest 15.4” workstation offering featuring a Santa Rosa and DX10 update.  The 8510w and 8510p (non-workstation version) replace the nw8440 and nc8430, respectively.  So take a look and see what we has to say about this powerful workhorse!
The HP 8510w is one of the lightest and thinnest 15.4” notebooks out there, and with this much power in such a thin case (and only one fan!) it is surprising that the laptop can keep itself cool.  But it does, and this laptop definitely does any job asked of it.  It laughs at current games and processor intensive applications, and as long as you aren't a hardcore gamer you will be fine. While the laptop does have its flaws, this is indeed a business class machine with a business class build.

NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M: Performance workstation grafik chip with DirectX 10 support, probably bases upon 8600M GT.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.
