    Well, that's the reason dedicated GPU exists. Ssd are great but it'll never give you a single fps in gaming.

    HD4600m is as fast as my overclocked NVIDIA GT 520M (880 MHz default is 740 MHz) on my 2011 windows 7 Laptop when I compared mine and my friend's newer laptop

    Your right. Was getting ready to post some results here.

    Did some testing over night. This is not a gaming APU. The limited design power was wasted on this 384 shader APU.

    This APU cannot stay within the thermal envelope while maxing a single core and the GPU at the same time. What you see is what you get with this setup. I tried lowering the max of the CPU side to open some headroom for the graphics, did not work as there was not enough power from the CPU to keep the game smooth. So, I lowered the max of the GPU and there was not enough power for the fps to stay steady.

    In a threaded game that could use more then one core, this APU may shine, I however doubt it as the 19 watts will be the stopper there. So, it is not a gamer APU or even close. I will be getting my gaming fix on my other laptop.

    I am however pretty happy with the performance of this laptop. It may be alright for the occasional game, but a gamer it is not.

    Firefox is my new browser, it fixed an issue. I also rolled back the ATI driver if anyone wants to know, it helped with the boot hang. 18 second steady boot now and I can live with that.

    Thanks for the replies. Solved I reckon .
