Question

Which of these Specification better?

an Asus Laptop A507UF

Processor: i3 -7020U
Graphic Card:MX130
RAM:4GB DDR4
HDD 1TB

compared to

Asus X505ZA
Ryzen 3
Vega 3
8GB DDR4
HDD1TB

the MX130 faster in terms or core speed (correct me if im wrong) but the i3 is such bottleneck and it looks unbalance in term of both MX130+i3, and the Price also more expensive, while Ryzen 3 and Vega 3 are quite compatible since both of their performance are balance (correct me if im wrong)

i still can't sure. please help, thanks

In my experience

A dedicated GPU even if it's the MX130 would get the slightly better gamer. But a gamer would be quite upset at having to run games on low settings (most games today) but it will run The Sims 3 and 4 very nicely.

The Ryzen with it's on CPU graphics has been a nightmare for many users as they encounter random failures during gaming. I'm going with "it's not ready."

You didn't reveal what games you want to play so I'll write this is fine for non-competive offline gaming on low settings.

As to your statement about CPU GPU bottleneck, with such a low end graphics (either model really) the bottleneck is the graphics area, not the CPU.

Games on low for both. Links about that follow.

That's pretty disheartening for the gamers out there. All games were barely playable on low. A lot didn't hit 60 FPS on low.

https://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-MX130-GPU-Benchmarks-and-Specs.258054.0.html shows the MX130 trading blows with the Vega 8 but the reports I get on the outright "game crashed" on the Ryzen with it's onboard graphics has me giving the nod to the MX130 if there is no other choice.

My view is a gamer with a limited budget should not buy if they can't get into the 1050 Ti or better dedicated GPU.

Thanks

Really Helpful thanks, but it's needed only for Photoshop and Corel Draw. not for Gaming, for Multimedia Purpose.

the budget is limited and i can't afford 1050 for now

Then the MX130.

Why? Stability. You can research as good as I can.

Yep

Yup, MX130 is the choice. thanks mate

in Indonesia the price quite expensive than the Normal US price. my Friend (yes actually it's for my Friend not for me) can't afford GTX 1050 as the Price is around Rp15.000.000 = 1096 = US dollar

in US it was $899.

Oh...

why MX130 a bottleneck? isn't that the upgraded version of GTX 950M/960M? it's quite good imo because my old laptop is 960M and still kicking (struggling a bit with current update of softwares). but this is for Multimedia only, Photoshop and Corel Draw not for gaming

Sorry

Don't worry

it's actually for my Friend who want to Buy a Laptop, i already learn from the links notebookcheck you provided to me, MX130 = 384 Pipeline and 960M 640 Pipeline

that's a relief because that's mean i don't need to buy a new laptop for myself since my MSI Laptop still kicking and nice.
