    I recently picked up this laptop and wanted to share some information on it. It doesn't appear to be much news out there about the FX-8800P Processor nor this laptop. I've taken it apart and installed a SSD into it. I have 2 sticks of 2133mhz ram on the way that I will install next week. Here's some pics of the inside that I posted. The rest are linked.

    Please test this thing down to the maximum.
    I'd be interested to see how this behaves not just in games with dual-channel and fast ram, but also in professional programs such as 3d studio Max (if possible).

    Here's my first round of tests. I'm still trying to find a proper app to log the frequency and temps.

    Toshiba Radius 14 E45DW-C
    FX-8800p 15w (hopefully someone can unlock this to full 35w!!)

    Setup: Laptop set to high performance, CPU Min/Max state set to 100%, SSD 480gb PNY CS1100 installed, the rest is stock. Running Catalyst driver 15.20.1055 all default settings. Logging done with hwinfo64 for speed & temps

    Octane 2.0 on Power in Edge: 18601
    Octane 2.0 on Battery in Edge: 18559

    Test ran 6 times, this is score from the last of the test. The beginning test scored slighter higher as temperature was cooler.

    Do you have the 2133 MHz RAMs installed for this test? What kind of RAM is it?

    Tests done with stock ram. No point in faster ram if carrizo is at 15w it can only use 1600mhz.

    hp envy 15z (m6-p113dx) here. using stock hardware. fatter and uglier laptop, but cheaper. complete with an unused space meant for dvddrives that you can use to smuggle drugs or something.
    score 4909
    graphics 8135
    physics 2056

    I was going to attribute the superior score to dual channel ram, even if its a horrible 6GB config.
    however I noticed your lack of "turbo" core clock. and your is listed as an AMD r6 ?wtf? . its an 8800p man. should be r7... drivers?

    I'm running the drivers that came with it. I see you're using newer than mine. I'll update the drivers and rerun. Also looks like the cpu throttled down to 1.4ghz in mine, I haven't found anything to keep a good log of the speed changes yet.

    Word of advice: for best test results, if possible do a FRESH Windows Install and use latest official drivers.
    Stock drivers/setup can bog things down unnecessarily.

    Do we have any confirmation that the 15W 8800p can only use 1600MhZ RAM?
    You mentioned that you have 2133MhZ RAM on the way... so, if you still do, test the system with that too, but also install latest drivers.

    You could do a comparison... with latest drivers but before and after RAM upgrade.
    Single-channel RAM usually results in bad performing iGP on AMD hardware (which loves dual channel, low timings and fast ram).

    Next best thing, look for low RAM clock timings
