Review Update Lenovo G505s-20255 Notebook

Notebookcheck
29 October 2013
  • Summary: Wasted potential. An affordable multimedia laptop featuring a quad-core APU, 16 GB of RAM and Crossfire graphics - that sounds almost too good to be true. In fact, Lenovo's G505s looks like a virtually unrivaled price-performance bundle on paper, but it also has some serious faults.
  • Pros: 24 month warranty, Generous working memory, Speedy system start, Low noise development, The laptops from Lenovo's G505s line offer a comprehensive configuration despite its comparatively low price.
  • Cons: Viewing angle dependent TN screen, Middling casing quality, Extreme CPU throttling, Virtually no performance gain through dual-graphics, High power consumption, Besides the CPU's clock issues that will hopefully be resolved, the faulty Crossfire scaling belongs to our biggest points of criticism....

Review Lenovo G505s-20255 Notebook

Notebookcheck
17 August 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 24-month warranty, Very little noise, Nice harddrive, Two-year warranty.
  • Cons: Low contract screen, For Lenovo standards it contains a bad keyboard, Gaming performance is limited despite dual graphics

  • Excerpt: Pego na metade. A Lenovo escolheu uma APU AMD da geração Richland para a nova série G505. Além disso, também há uma GPU Radeon dedicada nos portáteis, assim os dois núcleos gráficos funcionam em uma conexão Crossfire. Parece que a Lenovo está oferecendo um portátil para o gamer economizador.

  • Conclusion: Lenovo G505s-20255 Да, Lenovo G505s-20255 не оправдывает ожиданий - его впечатляющая на первый взгляд начинка плохо продумана. Чего стоит одна лишь проблема с управлением частотой процессора - добрая половина производительности теряется именно из-за нее.
