AMD E1-6010 APU R2 Graphics--so slow that it cannot even support simple web browsing?

Jump to solution

I have a laptop with an AMD E1-6010 APU R2 Graphics, which is terribly slow, to the point of not being able to handle simple web browsing (CPU Usage goes to 100% with a single tab open). Updated drivers, clean-installed Windows, then switched to Linux. No difference. I then ran both a Lenovo and a PC Doctor diagnostic (attached), which found no errors. I then ran a CPU benchmark test from cpu.userbenchmark.com (also attached). What's worrying is that the benchmark test says "With an extremely low single core score, this CPU can barely handle email and light web browsing" This despite the fact that CPU is "Performing way above expectations (92 percentile)" and GPU is "Performing above expectations (72 percentile)". Could it be that this processor is of such low quality, that even if performing way above expectations, it can still barely handle email and light web browsing?

Post a Speccy screenshot as an inline picture. Your benchmark test shows your RAM running at 800mhz.

Oh that's normal then, DDR3-1333, wasn't sure if it was reading clock or frequency...Is a low amount of memory though 4GB, well 3.5GB after shared memory for GPU, plus only 512MB of VRAM, and a slow HDD. Yes the CPU is slow, but modern Ubuntu and especially Windows 10 use a lot of system resources, so it's really the entire machine, especially when you consider modern web browsers aren't exactly light.
