AMD business. HP asks for about 750 Euros (~$1030) for their ProBook 655 business notebook. For that price, the buyer gets an office device with an AMD APU, a matte display and a quick hard drive. Additionally, the computer is pre-equipped for the installation of an LTE modem and offers easy access to its inner workings for maintenance. But does the notebook do well in practice? Read our review to find out.

AMD @Business. Around 790 Euros (~$873) has to be put on the table for the ProBook 655 G2. For that, you get a business notebook which delights with good input devices, a robust casing and low operating noise. Unfortunately, it disappoints once again with the screen.

An integrated GPU with no dedicated VRAM. It is typically paired with AMD Richland A6 processors.

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

AMD Radeon R6 (Carrizo): Integrated graphics card in the Carrizo APUs from AMD. Based on the 3rd generation GCN architecture with 384 of the 512 shader cores. The performance depends on the configured TDP of the chip (ranging from 12 to 35 Watt).
