80% Review Samsung ATIV Book 6 Touch 680Z5E-X01US Notebook | Notebookcheck
Full-HD mainstream. The Samsung Ativ Book 6 combines a powerful quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a dedicated AMD graphics card with a generous 15.6-inch Full-HD touch screen. How well the sleek-looking design performs and how it compares to its competitors is the subject of our review.

Samsung's ATIV Book 6 may not have the most up to date internals, but it does extremely well compared to the latest generation. It offers nearly the same level of performance and still offers some very good battery life. In fact, one has to wonder what the system could be like if Samsung used a Haswell processor.

These days, $1,199 is a fairly serious price for a midsize laptop that doesn't have an Apple logo on it. Samsung's ATIV Book 6 justifies that price with features like quad-core Intel Core i7 power, discrete graphics, and a gorgeous aluminum design. With its good-looking aluminum chassis and strong showing throughout labs testing, the Samsung ATIV Book 6 is a sleek and versatile 15.6-inch laptop.

Samsung ATIV Book 6 Notebook Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
The Samsung ATIV 6 is designed to address all of the needs of mainstream notebook consumers looking for a relatively powerful notebook. With a mid-sized 15.6" panel, decent battery life (for its size), a discrete GPU for occasional gaming sessions, and a peppy CPU, the ATIV 6 can handle just about anything you throw its way.

The ATIV Book 6 more than meets Samsung's promise of a premium and powerful computing experience. We especially enjoyed its booming JBL speakers and gorgeous, responsive 1080p touch screen. What holds this 15-inch notebook from earning a higher rating is its finicky touchpad; yes, there's a touch screen, but Windows 8 gestures should work more smoothly out of the box.

Samsung ATIV Book 6 Review
Source: Slashgear English
From the face of it, the ATIV Book 6 is a pretty ordinary laptop, and while it has some unique features and a great-looking display, I don’t think it has enough to really stand out from the huge horde of laptops currently on the market. Price-wise, you can grab it for around $1,100 (with the Radeon graphics chip), which is a pretty competitive price, especially with the power that it offers. Plus, the full-size keyboard, the large trackpad, and the crisp display offer a great user experience for those folks who consider form and function over hard internal specifications.

AMD Radeon HD 8770M: Mid-range GPU based on the GCN architecture.

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

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3635QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1200 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.


In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.
