System Performance: Web, Emulation, 3D Modeling

As we’ve covered a number of times in reviews of this level of laptop – the offering from Intel compared to AMD is quite different. At the same power level, AMD has up to 8 cores with 16 threads, while Intel only offers half that, in exchange for some go faster AVX512 instructions and built-in on-die Thunderbolt. Also, single thread performance is a key factor of Intel’s design, aiming for a super-fast immediate response for most tasks that are simple point and click on a work device. We saw on the previous page that this 15 W processor will offer up to 38 W instantaneously, and this is likely to be important on a number of our system performance tests.

That being said, we did have some issues running PCMark’s video compute workloads on our machine. PCMark10, no matter that the system was fully updated, would not correctly finish the video display and streaming encoding in its test suite. This is somewhat annoying, as that is the first test in PCMark’s run, and also part of the PCMark battery test. We were unable to find the root cause in our time with the device.

PCMark 10 - Productivity


Cinebench R20 - Multi-Threaded BenchmarkCinebench R20 - Single-Threaded Benchmark


Speedometer 2.0(7-2) Google Octane 2.0 Web Test

(1-1) Agisoft Photoscan 1.3, Complex Test(3-3) Dolphin 5.0 Render Test(5-4) WinRAR 5.90 Test, 3477 files, 1.96 GB

The mix of performance in the 1165G7 is interesting because it clearly lacks on some of the more demanding workloads, but ends up ahead on the lighter workloads like Optane and Dolphin. WinRAR is a mix of multi-thread and DRAM speed, so the Intel is in the ballpark there.

    > No direct comparisons with the latest MacBook Air. No M1 mention at all.

    nobody gives a shit about apple laptop that doesn't even run windows anymore.

    Even though I agree that these Matebooks are stupidly overpriced, your obvious Apple fanboyism almost entirely negates your arguments.

    I have never once considered the MacBook Air, nor am I interested in it. I'd say a Dell XPS or a Lenovo ThinkPad is the prime comparator. So, maybe not quite so cut and dried as you suggest.

    Just wanted to congratulate you on this troll. 5+ pages of angry responses!

    Matebook and Macbook are not direct competitors, because you can't buy a Macbook. You only rent it from Apple until their self-destructing circuitry fails and you have to buy a new one.

    Please stop attacking everyone who doesn't simp for your favourite anti-consumer tech corporation.

    Honestly I think that your comparison with M1 Apple laptops don't makes any sense.
    You're talking about two laptops that don't even share the same architecture, what is the meaning to compare an x64 architecture laptop with and ARM one?
    There's a ton of software you can't even run on an M1 MB, and you will never run, specially in the business segment where there are tons of legacy software that no one will recompile to ARM architecture, and you can't even run an hypervisor to emulate x64 architecture reliably.

    The fact that an M1 MB and this laptop have a screen, a keyboard, ram or an hard drive doesn't mean they can be compared, the hardware is only the tip of the iceberg...

    Don't get me wrong, I hope we all get rid of x64 and move to ARM, and all laptop producers move to ARM, but now there's no reason to compare this laptop with an M1 MB, specially because all the advantages of the MB came from the M1 soc, all the rest is quite poor as all Apple products, 90% design and 10% usability at a huge price.

    The first word is a typo... Bravo.
