Re: HP Pavilion G6 20xx/22xx/23xxAX - powered by Trinity

Hello please clarify me if you can

Model:HP Pavilion g6 2010ax (6 months old only) @ flipkart
The graphic drivers on hp site are 2012-04-06 , Version:8.941.1.0, 222.96M
the date is of 2012,old version and bigger size

But i downloaded the latest version from here http://www2.ati.com/DriverS/mobile/13-4_mobility_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql.exe (135mb approx)

I noticed that it didnt picket up usb 3.0 drivers from that.I had to download additionally these AMD Chipset Drivers


Now my question is are the drivers from HP are optimised for my laptop??Or same as amd ones (leave version here).
Also the hp is not updating these drivers.:( .Can there be any harm caused to GPU using drivers from amd official website

Even mine aren't updated automatically and no, it won't harm your laptop or gpu in any way.

Yes it's still a mess but I've heard people get good performance with it on crysis 3.

Buying a laptop with asymmetrical crossfire is certainly paying off now. Crysis 3 officialy supports ACF. Just check the image below.

I personally didn't try it but this is what people have said...

Hello everyone,
I have bought the g6-2313ax laptop. I have installed all the drivers and running Windows 7.
The problem is when i press the F12 key on the keyboard (which has a Wi-Fi symbol on it) in network and sharing center the bluetooth network icon appears and not the 802.11 bgn icon.
Please give the proper link for Wi-Fi driver of 2313ax for windows 7.

What is max CPU speed do you guys get from your A8 4500M?

Mine is 2.3ghz.

I tried to use AMD OverDrive and tried to enable turbo boost which gives up to 2.8ghz, but it does not work.

you have to set the cpu speed range in Mobility Catalyst first.The speed range can be set for all the power profiles like power saver,balanced and high performance both on battery and AC power..from 1.4Ghz to 2.3 Ghz..

I have set CPU Speeds to max on High performance (ie 2.3GHz) in catalyst and i have seen the speeds hitting 2.8 during intensive CPU Tasks..

Boost goes up to 2.3 ghz.

HP Pavilion G6 vs Lenovo Essential G505s

Are the new lenovo essential G505s better or worse than their equivalent HPs?
A10(8650G+8570M) :Lenovo Essential G505s (59-380146) Laptop (APU Quad Core A10/ 8GB/ 1TB/ DOS/ 2.5GB Graph)
A8 (8550G+8570M) :Lenovo Essential G505s (59-379862) Laptop (APU Quad Core A8/ 8GB/ 1TB/ DOS/ 2.5GB Graph)

According to notebookcheck(Computer Games on Laptop Graphic Cards), the 8650G is far better than everything including 8570M and 7670M :shock: , but the 7670M is better than the 8570M. The 8550G seems insignificant. No benchmarks yet for those cards in crossfire. Plus the lenovo ones have next-gen CPUs and more RAM.
Flipkart exclusives too.
