    Where are all the specs to all these projects. No matter how good your sound quality video quality and presentation is. No more how great it is that you have all these laptops. If your going to review and suggest them can you please put the specs in your video so that your video is the most useful thing ever. I don’t feel like writing down every computer you mentioned and then giong and looking up the specs. I want. The YouTube videos to do that for me.

    Sometimes, the board can process more than one. Example: Hyperthreading

  40. matt matthew on September 18, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    This is a comment I left on another video, someone asked what to look for in a budget computer in 2018.

    Heres both of my comments in one, hope this helps someone.

    I agree, Ram and disk speed differences, make a difference. Also who buys an I7 with 2 cores, thats a joke. No one is buying computers with CPUs that are less than 4cores. Depending on the RAM configuration, they could have taken one stick out of one machine, maybe, but in general this is a really flawed test, and basically pointless.

    Also no one needs to buy U CPUs anymore, HQ CPUs are good for todays times, soon that will change though, K processors are starting to come out, and once prices start going down, a little bit on K procsessors, thats definitely the route to take, because K procsessors can be over colocked, as long as theres not a terrible BIOS on the computer, that prevents the CPU from being overclocked. At that point you can install a custom bios, but that will void the waranty, granted, it is just software/firmware, so you could technically load the original bios back on, as long as everythings working, enough to do that, but if not maybe, if your lucky, the technician won’t be able to see the bios either, or if your even luckier, you wont have any issues with the computer at all, so you won’t need to RMA it.

    if these computers are still $297 And $393, thats not bad, but, honestly U procsessors are best for Tablets/ U processors are lower powered CPUs that are designed to be used on tablets/ give you better battery life, but what you gain in battery life, you loose in performance.

    Also Im not hating on HQ processors they are good, I’m just saying K processors are better, because of the overclocking factor.

    My current laptop has an HQ 8th gen, Quad Core, I7 CPU in it, and it is a beast, I just don’t have the ability to overclock it, like you get from k processors.

    If were just going by price, go with the I5 computer, its cheaper, if these computers are still this price or below, but don’t expect allot from U procsessors.

    The rest of the video makes no sense at all.

    Also the amount of cores, Cache, and GHZ in the CPU, will make a difference, other parts like SSD/Hardrive speeds make a difference, plus how much Rams in the computer can play a factor in all of this as well too, like an SSD will usually provide better/faster boot times vs a hardrive, and Ram is faster than storage devices, so having more RAM can help.

    Anyway long story short, its still not an accurate test/its not an even test on either side, both computers have ups and downs, neither computer is better in every way than the other one.

    Also I can’t really tell, but I think I see a green sticker on one of the Computers, one of the computers may even have a graphics card in it, if thats the case this is now an even less scientific video, because allot of editing software, such as adobee, relies on cuda cores, anyway theres no real point to this video.

    Yes I relize that, I forget to mention that sometimes, just because this was a factor, a long time ago/ 4cores have been the standard for a while, but yes cores do make a difference, the more the better, but in general these days this isn’t a factor. The I9 is even out now, in general you shouldn’t buy an I5, I7 or I9, that doesn’t have 4cores, I haven’t looked into the I9s to much yet, but I think they have 6cores, probably not 8cores, but eitherway in 2018 don’t buy a computer/a CPU without atleast 4cores, price wise theres no real reason to not have a quad core CPU, I’ve had a quad core I7 since late 2011, so at this point prices are really reasonable, also if you use your computer for editing, or programing, dont buy a computer with an I3, at the bare minimum get an I5 with four cores, if your editing try to get a quadcore I7, 8GB RAM at the minimum, 16GB would be better. Anyway yeah don’t buy dual core procsessors, nor I3s in 2018, also get at least 8GB of RAM, IPS displays, no TNs in 2018, also you may as well get at 1080p IPS display as well, SSDs aren’t quite cheap enough, for everyone, but they are nice to have, also 1TB (7200RPM) hardrives are a must, don’t buy 5400RPM hardrives in 2018. If you stick to that you should be good, also in 2018,for gaming, don’t buy less than a 1050 graphics card, if possible try to get a 1050TI, or above, that would be good for 720p gaming, a 1050/1050ti, a 1060 would game at 720p perfectly, and start doing well on 1080p, if you can get a 1070 that would be even better, but thats getting up there, price wise, I currently have two 1080s in SLI on my desktop, when I built my PC in late 2011 I had two 680s in SLI,Quadcore I7,16GB of RAM, 9TB worth of 7200RPM hardrives, the OS is on an SSD/Solid State Drive, my laptop has a 1050 in it, the rest of my laptop specs are, I7 Quadcore,16GB of RAM, 17.3INCH 4k IPS display. Anyway I guess I have to be more Specific, hope this helps someone.

    Heres a list of computer lines, that are good options to go with, for price to performance, Dell 7575, HP Omen and Lenovo Y series.

    If you have no budget these are good options, Alienware,Razor Blade Pro and Asus Rog.

    Hope this helps, I know some of this doesn’t pertain to this specific video, but it covers allot of info, and should be helpful.

    How important is having a laptop with Instant On (resume from sleep in under 1 sec?) and how important is battery life, especially considering battery life numbers are over exaggerated ?
