x265 is not really optimized for hardware acceleration, which means it utilizes your CPU most of the time and I'm sure A8 is more than enough for that (unless you use it to render x265 videos).
if it just for video, an integrated graphic will do the job smoothly..4gb will be good enough
Hi, I want to buy a new laptop and wanted to know if the laptop with below configuration can play X265 1080p or 720p videos smoothly. Here are the details : Specifications of "Lenovo G40-45 (Notebook) (APU Quad Core A8/ 8GB/ 1TB/ Free DOS/ 2GB Graph) (80E10088IN) (14 inch, Black)" ************************************************************ Display : Resolution 1366 x 768 pixels Screen Size 14 inch Screen Type HD TN GL Flat eDP Display Storage : HDD Capacity 1 TB RPM 5400 General : Brand LENOVO Part Number 80E10088IN Model ID G40-45 Color Black Lifestyle Everyday Use Memory : Expandable Memory Upto 16 GB RAM Frequency 1600 MHz System Memory 8 GB DDR3 Memory Slots 1 Slot Machine Dimensions : Weight 2.5 kg Dimension 384 x 265 x 25 mm Color Black Graphics : Dedicated Graphics Memory Capacity 2 GB Graphic Processor ATI EXO PRO R5 M330 Dedicated Graphics Memory Type DDR3 Audio : Sound 2 x 1.5 W Speakers Speakers Yes Platform : Operating System Free DOS OS Architecture 64 bit Processor : Brand AMD Cache 2 MB Variant A8-6410 Clock Speed 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost Upto 2.4 GHz Processor APU Quad Core A8 ************************************************************ Or Can a system with 4gb RAM or more, Intel HD graphics play X265 1080p or 720p videos smoothly? Do X265 1080p or 720p videos still need a NVIDIA graphics card? If so, what size of NVIDIA Graphic card is required like 512mb, 1gb, 2gb, etc? Thanks.
