Reviews for the Lenovo G505s-20255
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.

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.
