Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The HP 8470p has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,200 megahertz) amongst notebook PCs of this age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of similar spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the 8470p range from 660MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The HP 8470p has a quite fast processor clock speed (2.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the 8470p. Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the 8470p the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.1GHz.

If this medium processor core notebook PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the 8470p (2.9GHz), or the ProBook 650 (3GHz) both from HP or the Asus UX301LA (2.8GHz) which is also cheaper.
