Asus X555DA (A10-8700P, FHD) Laptop Review

73% Asus X555DA (A10-8700P, FHD) Laptop Review

Slow and outdated. AMD's Carrizo platform has not aged well. Performance is slower than a U-class Intel processor while offering shorter battery life and an overall poorer experience.

74% Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15ACL (A8-7410, HD) Laptop Review

No stamina. Lenovo's 15.6-inch laptop is available for approximately 350 Euros (~$372). The laptop's highlights are its 1-TB hard drive and 8 GB of working memory. However, buyers will have to accept a low-performance APU and a short battery life.

79% HP ProBook 455 G3 T1B79UT Notebook Review

Budget AMD business. The AMD model starts for about $200 USD less than the Intel ProBook 450 equivalent. Unfortunately, the hit to performance and battery life when compared to your standard ULV Core ix CPU is very tangible.

81% HP ProBook 655 G2 T9X09ET Notebook Review

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.

Microsoft: Windows 7 remains on sale in 2017

Microsoft: Windows 7 remains on sale in 2017

Windows 7 will be sold alongside new PC in 2017. Although Microsoft still won´t allow official Kaby Lake support for the older operating system, the OEMs still have a way to offer new systems with Windows 7 preloaded.

HP EliteBook 725 G3 Subnotebook Review

82% HP EliteBook 725 G3 Subnotebook Review

More Middle-Class, Less Elite. HP shows their loyalty to AMD by using an AMD APU in their new subnotebook, the EliteBook 725 G3. Sadly, the price tag of roughly 1,000 Euros (~$1133) does not match the performance of this device. Our test model offered short battery life, a noisy fan and a dark screen with low contrast and poor viewing angles.

Acer Aspire E5-552G Notebook Review

75% Acer Aspire E5-552G Notebook Review

Asynchronous. The combination of a dedicated Radeon R7 M360 with the integrated GPU of the SoC FX-8800P is a Crossfire unit called Radeon R8 M365DX and could not really convince in our review. The other aspects leave a better impression.

72% Lenovo IdeaPad 500-15ACZ Notebook Review

Disappointing. It has been a while since we have had a laptop based on a dual graphics solution by AMD. However, Lenovo seemingly does everything to let the IdeaPad look as bad as possible in our tests.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review

74% Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review

Badly designed. Even though it might not be the fault of the processor manufacturer, AMD-based notebooks do not have the best reputation. The reviewed model of the new Lenovo Y700 confirms this statement. The alleged gaming notebook is hardly suitable for gaming, although the performance should be sufficient in theory.

84% HP EliteBook 745 G3 (FHD) Notebook Review

Right down to business. Just last week, we evaluated HP’s new 745 G3 update with WQHD IPS screen and Windows 7 preinstalled. Today’s configuration features a lower-end 1080p panel, but it’s also correspondingly more affordable. How does it hold up against the bevy of available business choices?

HP EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook Review

86% HP EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook Review

Forget cheap. A high-end laptop based on AMD hardware - we have not seen that for quite some time. HP dares this experiment, and installs the fastest Carrizo APU alongside an SSD and a WQHD IPS panel in its EliteBook 745 G3. But just how well can the 1300 Euro (~$1404) machine stand up to the Intel competition?

Quiet and cool. The Aspire does not have a whole lot of CPU performance, but it is completely sufficient for office tasks and web browsing. Advantages of the system are the low temperature development, the quiet operating noise and the good keyboard. It does not consume a lot of power, either.

Price-performance smasher? HP promises that its exceptional multimedia laptop, Pavilion 15, can boast among others, with a Full HD screen and plenty of storage for a price less than 500 Euros (~$568). However, closer inspection shows shortcomings in the 15-inch device.

Stay-at-home. Acer's Aspire E17 E5-752G-W7TY sports one of the newest AMD CPUs from the Carrizo generation. This report discloses how the three-month-old A10-8700P scores, and whether an HD+ screen in a 17-inch device is still compelling.

70% Toshiba Satellite C55D-C-10P Carrizo-L Notebook Review

Extortionate price? Toshiba charges a steep price for a simple 15-incher which does not even feature a dedicated graphics card. What are the advantages of the C55D? Does Carrizo-L change things in favor of the AMD APU?

On the right path. For just 600 Euros (~$667), the HP Pavilion 17-g054ng offers a modern quad-core APU including Crossfire graphics, a lot of storage as well as a great Full HD display. But how does the AMD platform perform compared to the Intel competition?

Carrizo in Review: How does AMD's A10-8700P Perform?

Kaveri done right. Faster, more frugal, and versatile – AMD's Carrizo APU is supposed to deliver what we already expected from the predecessor. We evaluate whether the new generation can compete against Intel's Broadwell architecture.

Underdog against its will? We analyze the potential of the new APU AMD A-series A8-7410, called Carrizo-L. The top model in 28 nanometers promises a lot for AMD's entry-level line-up. What are the main rivals from Intel for the APU? Can the Radeon R5 also beat the Broadwell HD Graphics?

The first notebook with the next-generation AMD Carrizo-L APU (Toshiba C55D-C-10P) has finally arrived and we have the first dataset on its performance. So far, the numbers are modest at best compared to older Beema cores.
