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. The additional Radeon HD 8570M does not provide a real added value.

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. Our test determines whether that is true or not.
  • 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

Mise à jour de la courte critique du PC portable Lenovo G505s-20255

Notebookcheck.fr
3 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Un potentiel énorme gâché. Un ordinateur portable multimédia abordable comprenant un APU quad-core, 16 Go de mémoire vive RAM et un système double carte graphique Crossfire : cela semble presque trop beau pour être vrai. En effet, le Lenovo G505s semble absolument sans concurrent sur le papier par son rapport qualité/prix. Du moins sur le papier.

18 August 2013
  • 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. O nosso teste determina se isso é verdade ou não.

Обзор ноутбука Lenovo G505s-20255

Notebookcheck.ru
11 July 2013
  • 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. Потенциал процессора A10-5750M, который вполне способен сравниться с серией Core i3 от Intel, в этом ноутбуке потерян. Мы очень надеемся, что Lenovo исправит положение, выпустив обновление прошивки BIOS.
