Reviews for the HP Compaq Presario CQ70-116

73% HP Compaq Presario CQ70-116 review
Source: CNet English
Although the HP Compaq Presario CQ70-116's 17-inch screen and full-sized keyboard puts it in the desktop-replacement category, the relatively slow processor and integrated graphics mean most people will still need a fully fledged desktop for gaming, video editing and the like. But, for browsing the Internet, word processing and watching video, the CQ70-116 certainly delivers the goods. Above all, at around £370, it's outstanding value for money.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

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

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


T3200: Entry-level dual core processor with a slow performance due to the old Merom core and a small level 2 cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
