Ordered DV6z AMD LLano Notebook!

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd make note that I ordered a DV6z notebook with the following specs. I plan on pitting it up against my Sager NP8130 for build quality, screen, general use, and gaming performance.

15.6" 1080p matte LCD

A8-3530mx quad core AMD CPU

Radeon GT 6750m GT GPU

6GB DDR3 1333

Blu-Ray Reader / DVDRW combo drive

9-cell battery

Even though I know the 6750m GPU can't hold a candle to the GTX 560m in the Sager NP8130, the HP has the advantage of 6+ hours battery life compared to 3 in the Sager, and is about $450 cheaper similarly equipped (primarily blu-ray and 1080p screen).

Very curious as well. I hope these are nice processors. Intel needs some competition in the notebook market.

Everything I'm reading is that the CPU can overclock like crazy. Default voltage is high, and most can drop the voltage and still OC. Same with the GPU. We will see.

Here's my brief overview of the NP8130 vs DV6z.

Bunch of benchmarks, all with DV6z and NP8130 at stock:

OK, so Sager is better in performance obviously. Now I think everyone is curious how far the little DV6z can be overclocked and how does performance compare to these stock benches.

Thanks!

      hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.
       
      I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.
       
      But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.
       
      Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)

      Following the release of NVIDIAs new 436.02 driver which I mentioned in an earlier article here, I've decided to make a quick and dirty video showing off NVIDIAs new Sharpen filter which is part of their Game Filter feature. It works with the most popular APIs including DX 9, 11, 12 and Vulkan and can be set on a per-game basis with granular settings of 0-100 unlike AMDs RIS which is limited to Navi and lacks DX 11 support.

      With AMD's long awaited Navi release, do you plan to purchase the 5700/XT?
