Lenovo Ideapad 100-15IBD
Intel Core I3 5005U, RAM 2GB, HDD 500GB, Intel HD Graphics, 15.6" Wide LED, Win 10

Lenovo Ideapad 320-0RID/0SID
AMD Dual-Core A9-9420, RAM 4GB, HDD 1TB, DVDRW, AMD Radeon R5 Graphics, Screen 14", DOS

Lenovo Ideapad 110-LNID
AMD a8 7410, 4GB DDR3, HDD 1TB, AMD Radeon R5 M430 2G, DVD-RW, 15.6", DOS

ill probably use it for gaming, photoshop and maybe programming in the future. the screen size, os and hdd doesnt really matter and ill probably add more ram up to 8gb, so its mostly about which processor is better. I know discrete gpu would be better for gaming but idk if the lower processor are worth it and good enough for photoshop/programming.

so which one is better?


thanks in advance




ps. sorry if i sound rude idk what to write :D

For playing games, the A9-9420's Radeon R5 (Stony Ridge) has the best performance overall. It is basically similar in performance to the Intel HD 620 graphics core. The A9-9420's processing performance is lower than the Core i3-5005u, but most games are more GPU dependent than CPU dependent.

Keep in mind that for integrated graphics you will get the best performance when the laptop has two sticks of RAM installed so that the RAM will run at full speed rather than half speed. The performance difference could be anywhere between 10% to 20% depending on the game when it comes to integrated graphics. Therefore, a laptop with 2 sticks of 4GB for a total of 8GB will perform better than a laptop with a single stick of 8GB RAM.
