Will this laptop be able to fulfil my requirements ?

I was looking at models from companies like Asus, HP and Dell with the following configuration :

Ryzen 5 3500/3450/2500 with Vega 8 Graphics and 8 GB ram, 512gb ssd.

I wanted to know if a laptop with such configuration be able to run games like CSGO, PUBG Mobile Emulator, PUBG PC Lite, Minecraft, Fortnite, GTA 5 etc and Record them With OBS ? I may also have discord running in the background.

I am asking this question because right now I have Intel i3 5th Gen with Intel integrated graphics 5500,8 GB Ram which is very less as compared to Vega 8. But with this configuration, I am able to record CSGO with Discord running at 720p30 with minor frame drops.

And considering that Vega 8 has a hugely insane score when compared to Intel Intergrated, would it be able to fulfil my requirements ?

If not, can you suggest any Laptops available in India with AMD Graphics because as I can see, the NVIDIA ones are very expensive and my budget is 55000 INR

Re: Will this laptop be able to fulfil my requirements ?

I'm from the USA, so not familiar with offerings in India or the currency difference to us. However, briefly looking at specs for the 3450 vs. an i5, you're in good shape CPU wise. The 3500 is a Chinese chip, I believe and we have no support on those, it would probably work ok. Graphics wise, the Vega 8 can do CSGO at 61-70 FPS according to UserBench comparisons. They do list a 3500x, which is the top dog. 

So the answer is , yes any of those except the 2500 will be a huge improvement over an i3 anything. Those apps aren't a factor when using any of the chips you mention. They would all do the job. But for the best experience from what I got specs for, it's the 3450 chip for the middle or 3500 for the high end. The 2500 only had comparisons to the 620 intel GPU and it was basically a draw in CPU/GPU performance.

That would work if you want to be there all day. He wants to know if that hardware config would work with what he's been using, which is older stuff. I did the "leg" work of comparing 3 CPU's to 3 newer 13's because you can't compare anything like a Ryzen 3500, 3450, or 2500 to his 5th gen i3. It's simply too old. UserBench had comparisons for at least one specific game they test, that he mentioned, CSGO. Sometimes less is more.

I can tell you that 8gb system memory will not be enough for GTAV. You need about 12 for it to not suffer from constant stutters. 

CSGO would likely run okay. I can't speak to the others.

Woops, he's right there! Make sure you can upgrade the RAM to 16GB on whatever laptop you pick! Some have soldered RAM and no expansion, beware.

You can enter the exact specs you are interested here:
https://www.systemrequirementslab.com/my-computer-details


Stay on that page and then select or search for the game and it will tell you if you can run it.

End of.

Re: Will this laptop be able to fulfil my requirements ?

OP would need to go through 3 laptop configs and several games. He got a quick answer. Any of the laptops he's looking at will work but to play most of those games, he needs more than 8GB RAM. So @pokester  said "12GB RAM" advisable, I advised he makes sure that any laptop he choses has the ability to buy extra RAM to install. Some you can't add more.

OP is asking which laptop is best for his needs, that depends on his wallet and if the laptop can have more than 8GB RAM installed. "Can I Run it" is a fine site, but it gives general info, nothing specific to the models he's looking at.

If OP wants to go to that site and enter the specs of each laptop in there, he will spend more time than buying what he can afford that has the desired Vega 8 graphics with upgradable RAM. Any of the CPU's in his pick with the Vega 8 and more than 8GB RAM will run his games relatively smooth. At 8GB he may have some stuttering going on.

Re: Will this laptop be able to fulfil my requirements ?

I don't think OP is trying to run these on "max" settings so they will run CPU wise. RAM, yes more than 8GB would be best. I suggested to make sure the laptop OP chooses has the ability to upgrade the RAM. Vega 8 shouldn't be an issue given what OP was using. UserBench mentioned CSGO,PUBG in their comparisons of all those CPU's vs. a newer i3. OP has an older 5th Gen i3, no comparison to what OP lists.

Re: Will this laptop be able to fulfil my requirements ?

i own a Acer Nitro 5 AN515-42

Ryzen 5 2500U
Radeon RX560X
16GB DDR4-2400CL16 (2x 8GB)
60hz IPS (oced to 100hz with FreeSync)

here i can game CSGO in 1440x1080 with 150-250fps (depending on map)

if i want to stream (OBS) i would do it this way:
AMD AMF = H264/AVC Encoder (AMD Advanced Media Framework)
CBR 1080p50@12000kbps (for YouTube; 6000kbps for twitch.tv) + 3000kb Buffer (1500kb twitch.tv) 
"Balanced" "Main" "4.2" "CABAC"
Pre-Pass Mode "enabled"
VBAQ "enabled"

now the important part: "Video Adapter" : APU iGPU (not the RX560X)

this will allow you to stream your Games and play them pretty well for a 650€ Laptop

if you want i can set it up next week and send you a test-stream Smiley Wink
