HELP I'm trying to buy a new laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

They are mostly the same
With the only differences being:
One has Geforce MX150 // Intel UHD Graphics 620, 1.6 Ghz CPU Speed, 6MB Cache
The other has GeFore 940MX // Intel HD Graphics 620,  2.5 Ghz CPU Speed, 3MB Cache
I want to be able to game on it

Which one is better ?!?
I've heard MX150 is better than 940MX
But I want this laptop to last long
So I don't want to have to boost it too much
Does the better Cache help much ?
Here are the links

Doesn't the 2.5Ghz bear 1.6Ghz ?

Those are base clocks, which they will rarely be running at. One thing to note is that the first laptop is a quad core while the second is a dual core. The first one runs at a higher single core speed than the second one. Also the GPU is stronger.

There are also generation & efficiency differences that can make newer processors better, despite slower clock speeds.

 

For example, its like car engines.  If you look at a 3 liter V6 engine from the 80's vs a 3 liter V6 engine from today, the modern engine puts out way more power because its more efficient - despite having identical specs.
