AMD E2-9000e Entry-Level Laptop CPU

The AMD E2-9000e is a budget-class laptop processor (CPU). You can find it in various affordable notebook models. The E2-9000e is a dual-core chip with clock speed of up to 2 GHz and 1MB of cache. These modest specs mean the CPU can deliver basic computing performance, which is suitable only for non-demanding PC tasks like web browsing with small number of browser tabs running simultaneously, light work in MS Office apps, or video / audio playback. The chip is not suitable for heavier duties like content creation. On the positive side, the E2-9000e has a power consumption of only 6 Watts, meaning that it is battery life friendly.

      Among the popular ones are some older dual-core Intel Celerons, from year 2015-2016-2017. For example, Celeron N3060.

      No, unfortunately. The processor isn’t upgradeable, just like it isn’t in almost all notebook models.

    how can i improve the performance of this AMD E2 9000e processor and what kind of games can be played in such pcs

    • Dan

      Unfortunately, you can’t improve performance of the processor itself. What you can do is to increase RAM if you have less than 8GB, add dual-channel memory (2x4GB instead of 1x8GB) if you have two memory slots in your laptop, and upgrade your hard drive to a solid state drive (improves everyday work a lot). The E2-9000e is among the slowest laptop processors and it isn’t suitable for gaming. You can play only the lightest browser-based games and maybe some light PC games like League of Legends and Minecraft on the lowest graphics detail settings and resolutions. Having dual-channel RAM helps a lot with gaming performance.

      Additionally, you can close / disable apps you don’t need.

    This is the worst computer I have ever used, it is slower than a snail and a turtle put together, it SUCKS at gaming and even watching an HD video freezes and lasts for almost 30 seconds, it can’t support Zoom and google and that is extremely disappointing and frustrating.

    In conclusion a lousy computer and if you wanted to buy it, you’d better get another one.

    Can I start programming and creating websites like html and css with this laptop?

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • Dan

      Hi, html / css and similar programming tasks don’t require a lot of processing power. However, the AMD E2-9000e is among the weakest processors and you may experience slowdowns even in these light tasks. I would recommend at least lower mid range processor like the AMD Ryzen 3 or Intel Core i3, combined with at least 8GB RAM, and a solid state drive instead of a slow hard drive.

      No, unfortunately. The E2 -9000E and almost all other laptop processors aren’t upgradeable. They’re soldered onto the motherboards.

    This is by far the slowest most frustrating and pathetic computer I have ever owned. Can’t believe Best Buy would even carry it. I bought it in an emergency and did not check the reviews… BIG MISTAKE. It takes exactly 37 second from hitting the Chrome Icon to actually getting a web page. I swear I would put my 1985 Commodore 64 against it for a processor speed battle and my money’s on the Commodore.

      I’m gonna have to disagree with you. I just finished working on one and it’s not bad at all for speed. Mind you, if you load them up with garbage………….what do you expect. If kept clean of resource robbing programs and windows bloatware, they perform as expected imo.

    I got to try this processor on HP 14-CM00095AU, and I was astonished on how BAD this processor is. I even tried to update amd drive in hpe that the processor will have better performance to no avail.
    I suggest anyone already bought laptop with this processor to buy good SSD (WD Blue, Samsung 860, etc) to complement this super slow processor.

    AMD E2-9000e is a medium performance prossesor it is same to intel core i3 you can play games in 25-35 Fps but it is really a good prossesor for medium gaming performance. you should delete useless files. you should update your graphics card and prossesor drivers for better gaming performance.and you can play GTA IV pretty good (medium-low)20-25 fps.in it

    This processor struggles to get anything done. Whether you’re simply just browsing websites or using Microsoft Word for your work, it’s not worth it. Absolutely horrible and not worth the purchase. From my personal experience, the processor is just about enough to run Windows 10 but anything else, no.

      I’m really glad I found this review and it really helped me alot. I got a Windows 10 HP laptop to replace my old Windows 7 laptop on X-mas day and was confused why my old laptop could handle certain programs better than my new one? Don’t get me wrong my old laptop would randomly freeze whenever i would play a game or watch a video but when it wasn’t doing that it was working fine. So i decided to do some research and i figured out my CPU was the AMD Processor E2-9000e and looked at some reviews and only now did i figure out how horrible it was. honestly i wouldn’t recommend anyone this CPU to anybody if you need a CPU don’t get this one It’s slow, Buggy and just a general nuisance wouldn’t recommend at all.

    Well its certainly pathetically slow chip. Battery life isn’t going to fix the terrible experience using this chip. Dell is using this chip in cheap 11″ 3000 series replacing the Celeron 3060 but its not a big improvement for sure.

    • CAN I PLAY GTA V WITH THIS PROCESSOR?

      Hey Can I play Grand Theft Auto V on this processor with 4 GB ram?? plz tell anyone??

    • Dan

      Unfortunately not. This is one of the slowest laptop processors currently and it has very weak integrated graphics. They are too weak for GTA 5. RAM size of only 4GB is also problematic. You’ll need at least 8GB. You might be able to start the game, but frame rates would be very low and unplayable.
