In 2006 AMD acquired ATI, they proposed the concept of integration of CPU and GPU, but until 2011, AMD was to honor the original commitment, the introduction of a new generation of fusion-based notebook processors APU, which integrates the Core high-performance GPU, and support powerful heterogeneous computing, focused directly on old rival Intel's Sandy Bridge, then in the current application environment, AMD's APU and Intel's Sandy Bridge the gap between what it? Edit particularly found the Z480 and Z470 Lenovo for some two products compare.
First, we introduce you to compare today to test the configuration of two laptops. From the table above we can understand the choice of two commercially available version of the LENOVO Z475 laptop in the price difference of 100 dollars, they die, memory, hard disk and screen are the same, but the processor, graphics card is not the same as , Z470 equipped with AMD's latest A6 APU and HD6470M, while the Z480 with Intel Core i3 2310M and GT520M graphics card, which reduces the error of the test behind us, between the two platforms to enhance the accuracy of the data comparison.
Processor performance in the period we use CINBENCH 10 CPU test results from the scoring perspective, in a multi-threading capabilities, quad-core AMD A6 3400 and two nuclear power plant thread Core I3 2310M score very close to the performance difference is small, However, in single-threaded test, the low frequency performance difference between AMD A8 and i3 about 30% better performance Core i3
3Dmark is a 3D graphics card for testing the performance of test procedures, as A6 and HD6470M support mixed crossfire, so we tested for Z470 fighting, independence was only, only three states the nucleus under graphics 3D performance. From the test results show that, in fighting after the Z470 GPU test scores higher than the Z480's GT520M about 3,000 points to reach 14,491 points, which we tested for the back of the game looking forward to. However, we also found that the CPU in the 3Dmark test items, A6 test scores 1800 points lower than the i3, i3 2410M performance is about 70%.
LENOVO IdeaPad Z380 Battery info:

PCMark Vantage is a powerful hardware testing tool that supports the test functions including Hyper-Threading and multicore CPUs digital image decoding and transcoding, file compression and decompression, Internet browsing, 3D processing, text editing, video transcoding, and image processing performance tests, is an authoritative assessment of the overall notebook performance testing software. PCMark Vantage test results from the point of view, the configuration of the Z480 Intel Core i3 test scores in addition to the game, other projects are leading Z470, but the overall score on the two machines in the gap is very small, at the same level.
SYSMark 2007 is a focus on office performance testing software that can detect the most intuitive in the business office of a product's performance. View from the test results, configuration AMD A6 acceleration in the sub-processor Z470 and Z480 have a score on a larger gap in the final total score on, Z480 substantial lead Z470.
From the professional testing software test results, the 3D display performance, mixed fighting after the Z470 is about 20% higher than the Z480, but in the office and the 3Dmark test results on the CPU, Z480 Z470 30% or so ahead, but from PCmark performance point of view, both models the overall performance and less. It can be said of software testing in the test, the two products of the test results showing a very chaotic situation, not only with the overall performance of the notebook, but also by the various test software on different platforms to optimize the impact, so we have two notebook for the game, file compression, video transcoding, Excel spreadsheet processing tests.
Professional testing software from the previous test results view, Z470 and Z480 after fighting in mixed compared to the test in 3Dmark on a certain degree of leadership, in addition Z470 processor performance, machine performance and business performance are less than the Z480. For a more comprehensive understanding of the Z480 and Z470 in the difference between the actual application, we simulate the user's actual use of the environment, put both applications in a series of tests.

Test which we use in the game the more moderate load game "Resident Evil 5" and the higher the load, "Lost Planet 2", we will screen set to medium, in a resolution of 1280 × 720 test frames from the actual game number of terms, exchange of fire after the Z470 in the "Resident Evil 5" test on a slight lead, and "Lost Planet 2" results slightly lower than the Z480, which shows the two products do not have the card with the smooth running of large 3D gaming capabilities.
In addition to our performance in the game the game Benchmark tests outside of the actual trial of the "Need for Speed" and "Resident Evil" two games, and use the VCR to record the actual number of frames the game. From the actual gaming experience, the carrying A6 APU's LENOVO Z470 "Call of Duty 7" will remain at 16, while the "Need is 14" only 15, which is 14,000 points 3Dmark GPU score do not match, resulting in the situation specific reason is not clear.
In addition to game testing, we also conducted a file compression tests in the test, we use WINRAR test program that comes with the notebook file compression on both test results from testing, configuration, leading Z480 Core i3 about 30%.
In the video conversion tests, we used two high-definition video format conversion plant will be 480 × 320 MPEG4 format files, convert the time from the point of view, equipped with Intel Core i3 Z480 shorter time-consuming.
Photoshop is a most widely used image processing software, this test will also be added Photoshop image processing test in, but unfortunately we did not find the test results of the Z480, but this test from the evaluation of the monitoring center to see, Photoshop test results determined by the processor performance and test scores the same processor, the notebook is very stable, like the Z480 is equipped with Core i3 test scores in 66 seconds from top to bottom, so here we take the average scores Core i3 as a reference.
