Between 945GM and Ion

This is definitely cool. But again, it still comes to a quite expensive price.

Though of course, the price is still overrated, especially for an single core with even less than 1MB of L2 cache, ultimately buyers would still go for AMD if they consider it carefully.

I mean, I bought an AMD Turion X2 1.6Ghz, 1MB L2 Cache Compaq Presario CQ40 laptop with ATI 3450HD for just about the same price. (Yeah I know, it’s like a big slap for Intellier like me buying AMD laptops, but then again, THEY ARE JUST THAT CHEAP EVEN WITH ABOVE AVERAGE GRAPHICS !)

But for those who would rather buy a netbook and play games, this would probably be their best solution compared to the REALLY-OVERRATED Ion platform netbooks LOL.



  1. Hmmm…. still, I wouldn’t say Atom has enough processing power for even Dota… But, with Ion Platform the dedicated graphics might be useful in HD Vid (especially MKV decoding)…

    With Compaq V3753AU (AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-62 with nVidia 7150M/MCP67M graphic chipset it does take a lot of graphic processing power that makes it similar to playing 3D games… imagine my temp spike through 90degrees C in a matter of minutes… this temp is not even reachable with 2006 games…..

  2. Can. We tested before @ UTP. Works just fine for Dota. though not too sure if games like GTA IV / Assasin’s Creed can be played 🙂
