    AMD Processors and GPUs


      Getting a new laptop. Found a great machine with two drives, 95% NTSC color gamut on 15.6" matte screen, upgraded to 16GB of RAM. It's flashy, beautiful, and not too expensive. But...it's an MSI. So the processor is an AMD A10-5750 quad-core, and the GPU is a Radeon HD 7970m. According to this: http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-HD-7970-vs-GeForce-GTX-770 the radeon is better than the Nvidia GTX 770m. Also, the processor is an A10 quad-core. Those specs are pretty great, but there's no "Phenom" in the name of the processor, as stated by the Premiere CC requirements. Will it still work? Is "Phenom" just AMD's desktop name? The GPU should work seeing as it's listed in the recommended GPUs, and it seems comparable to the GTX 770m. But what about the processor? Will it work? Here is the link to the un-upgraded computer: http://www.xoticpc.com/msi-gx60-3ae216us-p-5786.html
