LG A515 / A520 Notebook Tech Specifications

LG A520 Notebook


Available Processors

  • Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Intel Pentium processors (L3 cache memory: 3 MB ‐ 8 MB) are supported.

L3 cache memory size differs depending on the CPU, which in turn differs depending on the model.

The user must not replace or expand the CPU capacity.

Main Memory

  • A520 / A515 Series provides two memory slots.

Each socket supports 1024 MB to 4096 MB, and the maximum capacity of the main board is 8 GB.

We recommend 2 GB (2048 MB) or 4 GB (4096 MB) memory for the main memory upgrade.

Memory of 4 GB or more is supported only in 64 bit O/S. 32 bit Windows Vista®, Windows® XP, and Windows® 7 do not support memory of 4 GB or more.

Memory types and capacity may differ depending on the model. When you want to use both memory sockets, you need to use the memory manufactured by the same company.

Secondary Storage Devices

  • 6.35 cm(2.5 inches) Hard Disk Drive(SATA)

The capacity of the storage device or the hard disk type may differ depending on the model.

TurboCache ‐ This technology actively utilizes part of the System Memory when processing large graphic data like 3D graphics. The size of the utilized memory is determined by the Video Memory and System Memory sizes.

If TurboCache technology is applied to the Graphics Memory, the System Memory can allot up to 1717 MB out of 2 GB (2048 MB) and up to 4095 MB out of 8 GB (8192 MB) for large graphic data.

  • Intel® HD Graphics 3000 or 2000

The DVMT actively utilizes part of the system memory when processing large graphic data like 3D graphics. Therefore, the size of the graphic memory is displayed as the sum of the actual graphic memory size and the utilized amount of memory, which is decided by the size of system memory.

Up to 815 MB out of 2 GB (2048 MB) system memory and up to 1696 MB out of 8 GB (8192 MB) system memory can be used as graphic memory with DVMT.

Applications (graphics program, game, etc.) requiring strong graphic processing power may not work properly.
