Notebook Acer E5-553G that review by me this time is the secondary version that uses AMD Quad Core processor A12-9700P. A12-9700P this has a 2.5 GHz clockspeed and can be increased if required be 3.4 GHz with Turbo Core technology. APU ‘ Bristol Ridge ‘ features 4 cores (4 threads) that surely will give quite a good performance though used to multitasking.
For RAM, Acer E5-553G uses DDR4 memory with a capacity of 8 GB of dual channel configuration. Utilization of RAM with dual channel configuration that will certainly give you a much better performance than most notebooks are still using single channel ram because it gives twice the memory bandwidth of a large libih. With 8 GB DDR4 memory type of course will be very helpful to optimize the performance of your notebook as a whole when used to perform various computational activity.
AMD Radeon R8 M445DX with 2 GB of dedicated VRAM also streng then Acer E5-553G in the side of the graphic. Graphic Card is able to run on Dual mode ‘ Graphic ‘ which is the technology from AMD with the merger of the discrete Graphic Card and an integrated Graphic Card on APU processor, so it will give you the maximum performance. The user certainly does not need to be khawatair while this notebook will be utilized to run games or applications that require reliable graphics performance.
To know the performance of a processor AMD A12-9700P in multithread processing scenarios, i use Cinebench R15. R15 Cinebench can measure the performance of the processor when rendering images that utilize all cores/threads available. The results of these benchmarks, AMD A12-9700P yields a value of 235 points. With that value, AMD-9700P A12 has the performance equivalent to Intel Core I5-5200U on multithreads processing. In doing so, the processor from AMD is good enough to run a job that can take advantage of all cores/threads available.
The graphic sector, I test Radeon M445DX R8 on Acer E5-553 this by running 3D Mark. 3D Mark is shyntetic benchmarks to find out how good the performance of our graphic card. For this time, I run 3D Mark Cloud Gate, 3D Mark Ice Storm, Ice Storm Extereme 3D Mark, and also the 3D Mark Sky Diver. Here’s the result:
Although Acer E5-553G this is not a laptop specially made for gaming needs, but by looking at the specifications, I’m interested to do testing with the running game of the middle class. Here’s the result :
