Celeron 4000 - 16,000
A4-9120c - 14,000
Celeron 3350 - 11,000
MediaTek M8173C - 10,000
Celeron 3160 - 8600

YOU don't want a chromebook... cool. but in many cases they are a huge SAVINGS of money. My 2nd grader does all web based activities in chrome and their school uses google docs- literally EVERYTHING they do is in chrome. So why does my seven year old need a windows machine?

Very good processor for a Chromebook. Despite what Windows Fanboys say, an Octane score of 14,000 will fly in a Chromer but be a dead stick in the mess called Windows. Never a good idea to listen to Chromebook hater pests in these threads. They're kinda like bedbugs and roaches, hard to get rid of.SmilieSmilie

Don't know too much about processors, but how would the AMD A4 compare to the 1.6 - 2.24 GHz Intel Celeron N3160 Quad-Core Processor

... performance wise. Power consumption aside.

How much does quad-core vs dual-core matter in Chromebooks? ...again, performance wise. Power consumption aside.

A4-9120C [cpubenchmark.net] isn't terrible, but it's meh for this price point. A6-9220C [cpubenchmark.net] would be better.

Both of those Stoney Ridge chips launched around CES 2019 in January. CES 2020 is around the corner. It would be nice to see some Zen-based fanless APUs (5-8 Watts).

maybe defective or something to do with slow ram or storage, but my a4 lenovo i returned was scoring as low as <9000 in octane. nothing near 14000. i think i hit >10k a couple runs.

also i think the benchmark sucks because for example my sd835 tab s4 scores 10,000 octane, but is like 5 times as fast as my old toshiba's chromebook that scores 8-9k. if you believed the benchmark they would be almost the same speed but in reality it's not close...

this does have a touchscreen and ips display though, which is nice. just wouldn't trust the power.

Edit: This CPU also passmarks 1700, which my Lenovo AMD chip I recall passmarked 2000. So whatever variant of a4 or a6 was in that lenovo was actually faster than this, yet still dreadfully slow.

You're talking about this $129 Lenovo A6-9220C with Windows 10, right? If you are, maybe it was just Windows 10 being trash. Although that probably doesn't explain your much lower Octane score.

I use a Celeron N2840 [cpubenchmark.net] Chromebook with 2GB RAM. It handles itself surprisingly well. The A4-9120C [cpubenchmark.net] or A6-9220C [cpubenchmark.net] with 4GB of RAM roll right over that in both single- and multi-threaded.

ChromeOS and Windows could be an apples and oranges comparison. On the other hand, I use an A6-3400M [cpubenchmark.net] Windows 7 laptop with HDD. Significantly lower performance than A6-9220C, but I still consider it usable.
