HP Pavilion dv6 15.6in quad-core notebook
Llano laptop, anyone?
Playing the game?
Talking of gaming, the AMD HD6545G2 integrated graphics support DX11 so I gave it a quick spin through the Aliens v Predator benchmark at the screen’s native 1366 by 768 resolution. This notched up an average frame rate score of 13.6fps, hardly playable, but it is a pretty intensive benchmark. The DX10 performance was better though, scoring an average 34fps in Far Cry 2 which is OK for casual gaming.
A respectable all-rounder for the price
The only thing that lets this AMD dv6 down is its all-but-casual gaming performance, although to be fair it’s not been designed for anything more demanding in this sphere. More to the point, the HP Pavilion dv6-6b06sa is a good all-rounder for home use for those on a fairly tight budget. It has enough power to do the everyday jobs and comes with huge storage capacity or it would do once you’ve stripped out the HP bloatware. ®
