i want to buy a laptop with amd procie that can play civ vi or bf 1 with lowest quality
i have one in my mind, its Lenovo IdeaPad 110 amd a9 9400 with this spec :
AMD A9-9400 (2.4GHz)
4GB RAM ddr4
HDD 1TB / 1000GB
VGA AMD RADEON integrated R5 2gb
can i play both game with this? i know i must upgrade the memory, but beside that is it adequate enough to play both game?
and more, whats the different between a9 9400 and a8 7410? which one is better? and if i compare with intel procs, which processor that comparable with amd a9 9400?
or do you have any other suggestion?

thank you

That APU is on the low end when you compare it to what they want as a minimum "Medium" Settings. I think even at the lowest possible settings your going to see some huge input lag and choppy frame rates.

A cursory Google search reveals that the officially listed BF1 minimum requirements are more than your desired laptop look.

CPU
AMD: FX-6350
Intel: Core i5 6600K

Graphics:
AMD: Radeon HD7850 2GB
NVIDIA: GeForce GTX 660 2GB

8GB of RAM

The minimums for Civ VI look to be much lower, so your laptop may run that one.

I'm doubting the integrated R5 graphics for the A9 would suffice with BF1. Until I upgraded, I had an A8 laptop with the same graphics with a maxed-out 16GB of RAM and it wouldn't even run World of Warships effectively.

Hope this helps somewhat.

This is the Minimum you will need for a GPU.

1280X 720
Low settings
Single Player

NVIDIA GeForce 950M.........60 FPS
Intel Iris Graphics 540.........43 FPS
Radeon R7 M360.................42 FPS
AMD Radeon R9 M280X.......36 FPS

R7 Graphics.. Average around 30 FPS
R5 Graphics.. all of them around 27 FPS or below Average

Fps may have increase with both Patches to the Game and Driver support, this will give you a general Idea on what you need.


So Listing units with Playable frame rates " 1280X 720,Low settings,Single Player, Average above 30 FPS"

hp 15-ba026ax A10-9600P R7 M440

Battlefield 1
low 1280x720 31.8 fps "Average"

It's going to be jittery and show signs of input lag but I suppose it is playable. Some slight overclocking my help some.

You just have to watch the cooling, These APU's usually have some play room when O.C.

No overdrive because laptops shouldn't be overclocked.

You have to install Overdrive because it doesn't self install on PC either unless you use AMD's driver Disk. Look up "Laptop AMD Overclocking with Overdrive" you will find pages after pages on this subject. Is it safe? Just like doing it to a PC you have to know you limits and watch the heat. I set profiles and only use the O.C when gaming and always on a cooling pad just in case. He picked a Laptop with a R5 so that 10% he could gain for a safe O.C will make the difference between playable and downright annoying to look at.

I can run bf 1 on lowed with 20-30 fps on my laptop of spec:
A8 6410(2.4 GBZ quad core)
8 GB ram
R5 M330 (2gb discrete GPU) on max resolution, vsync off. Even just cause 3 on 20-25 fps, low, vsync off, 1280x768 resolution for smooth gameplay. I am amazed that this laptop can run lots and lots of latest titles. Yet underestimated

The OP stated it is an integrated R5 graphics core which means it is the Radeon R5 (Stoney Ridge) iGPU. It is about equal to the Intel HD 620 in current generation Intel CPUs. That also means it is somewhat close a nVidia 920m.

The R5 M330 is about equal to the nVidia 910m. The Radeon R5 (Stoney Ridge) iGPU probably has around 15% better performance.
