Caught in the middle. Lenovo chose AMD APU's Richland generation for the new G505s series. In addition, there is also a dedicated Radeon GPU in the notebooks so that the two graphic cores are working in a Crossfire connection. It sounds like Lenovo is offering a notebook for the economical gamer. Our test determines whether that is true or not.

Comment

AMD Radeon HD 8450G + Radeon HD 8570M Dual Graphics: Dual Graphics (asymmetrical CrossFire) combination of a dedicated Radeon HD 8570M  and a 8450G processor graphics card (in the processor core of the Richland A6-Series). Only in some cases faster than the dedicated GPU alone and furthermore it sometimes suffers from micro stuttering.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

A6-5350M: Dual-core processor with only one FPUs and an integrated Radeon HD 8450G graphics card. Top model of the "Richland" A6 series.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
