Thread: AMD Turion X2 64 laptop not fast enough for HD?

  1. #1

    Default AMD Turion X2 64 laptop not fast enough for HD?

    I have a Compaq Presario CQ60
    AMD Turion X2
    2GB Ram
    Nvidia graphics card
    4 years old

    It really struggles to play video files from my video cameras . Is it just not a good enough machine to handle HD files?

    Yes, its not good enough!

    I think you should consider buying a new one! This one is a bit too outdated for modern day HD!
    If you watch video alot this WILL be a problem. AMD are not famous for their 'fast' processors... one reason for this may be that they aren't fast!
    2GB ram is probably the bare minimum but mixed with the PC's old age and bad CPU... Its a goner!


    Sorry to break the bad news! But this really isn't fit for HD or video!

    Hope this helps!

    Ohh and if you are considering a new one, tell us an approximate budget and we can try and give some recommendations...
