[Bestbuy618 Notebook Channel] The clock read 2:00 a.m., and the hotel lobby was still illuminated. Li Lei and Han Mei Mei are one person in the lounge area, each holding a laptop and editing the video shot during the day. The sound of yawning and keyboard tapping had been going on for more than 3 hours, but neither of them seemed to want to go back to their rooms to rest.
After all, the decision to edit together in the hall is intended to improve communication, data transfer, and efficiency. Of course, it’s also to remind each other that there’s no way to get the film out on time if they fall asleep after dawn. Another hour passed, Han Mei Mei rubbed her eyes and clicked on the export video, and asked Li Lei: “How is it? I’m starting to export here.” Li Lei said while choosing to export, “Me too, export.” Han Meimei said, “I’m OK.”
“I’m only halfway there! Why are you so fast?” Han Mei Mei said, “Who let your computer slow? I put the video on the hard drive, you can send it together later, I’ll go back to bed, bye.” Li Lei took the hard drive, the watch hand had passed 3:30 a.m., looking at the back of Han Meimei had to mutter: “The same are notebooks, why or my slow? So sleepy ah!” No one wants to finish work quickly when they are constantly tired or sleep deprived. However, due to the outside office, the notebook may not be connected to the power supply, causing performance to suffer. The more anxious you are, the slower you will feel. However, even if the same thin and light notebook is not connected to a power supply, different notebooks will still have a significant performance gap.
As a result of the same export video, Han Mei Mei was able to go back to bed first, whereas Li Lei can only work overtime in the hall for one of the reasons.
This also serves as a wake-up call to the younger generation: when there is a demand for mobile use, purchase a laptop to account for the “unplugged” performance release. Otherwise, as Li Lei envied colleagues, it is easy to make the tired body worse. Because it is a mobile experience, thin and light book is naturally the first choice, and the processor is the key to determining the performance of thin and light book. So, which processor is better in unplugged performance, Intel or AMD? The previous comprehensive comparison of MSI’s Core i7-1195G7 and Lenovo’s YOGA 14c with the Rex 7 5800U shows that (click on “MSI’s Core i7-1195G7 vs Lenovo’s YOGA 14c: the strongest CPU for thin and light notebooks beats the Rex 7 5800U”), the Core i7-1195G7 outperform
Web browsing tests were carried out with WebXprt 3 on typical scenarios such as photo enhancement, artificial intelligence-assisted photo album organization, stock option pricing, encrypted notes and OCR scanning, sales charts, and online assignments. Let’s start with the Core i7-1195G7 and Raider 7 5800U results when connected to a power source. Overall, the Core i7-1195G7 has a small lead, but each is considered a winner and not pulling ahead. Now unplug the power and compare the test results of the two platforms.
It is easy to see that the Core i7-1195G7 has a 40% advantage over the Rex 7 5800U, which means that the Core i7-1195G7 is more reliable in web browsing, online office, and other scenarios. When unplugged, the Core i7-1195G7’s performance drops by about 11%, while the Raider 7 5800U’s performance drops by more than 60%.
PCMark 10 offers four different types of tests, covering scenarios such as common basic functions, productivity, digital content creation, games, and tests for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Edge, and other popular software. In the plug-in test, the Rex 7 5800U can outperform the Core i7-1195G7 by about 3%, and in some tests, the advantage can reach 30%; the advantage of the Core i7-1195G7 is reflected in applications, games, and other scenarios. However, in the unplugged test, the situation is very different. The Core i7-1195G7 leads 10 of the 13 items, and the average score is about 15% higher than the Rex 7 5800U.
By comparison, when unplugged, the Core i7-1195G7 PCMark 10 test scores fell about 8%, while the sharp dragon 7 5800U scores fell to 23% through the “360 pages of large PPT exported to PDF, Lightroom import 100 RAW format photos and exported to JPEG, Premiere export a 9-minute 1080P video, Under plugged-in conditions, the Core i7-1195G7 outperformed the Raider 7 5800U by about 6%, but under unplugged conditions, the Core i7-1195G7 outperformed the Raider 7 5800U by 15%.
The productivity performance differences between the Core i7-1195G7 and the Rex 7 5800U for both plugged in and unplugged situations are shown below. When not plugged in, the Core i7-1195G7’s test results drop by about 9%, while the Rex 7 5800U drops by up to 18%. It is clear from the above tests that the two processors are still winning and losing when plugged in.
However, in the case of unplugged, it is essentially one-sided. The Core i7-1195G7 outperforms the Raider 7 5800U in terms of stable high performance, so why does the Rex 7 5800U’s test score drop by more than 20% or more when not plugged in? Let’s look at the PCMark 10 application test.
Under unplugged conditions, the results of the two thin and light notebooks equipped with Core i7-1195G7 and Rex 7 5800U are shown in the chart below. According to the CPU clock frequency detected in the graph, the Core i7-1195G7 is still capable of providing 4500MHz and above under different loads, even up to 5GHz, maintaining a high performance output; whereas the corresponding performance of the Rex 7 5800U is “smooth,” most of the time maintained at 3500MHz or less. The converted battery life was approximately 877 minutes and 856 minutes, with a 2 percent difference that was not significant. However, in terms of performance, the Core i7-1195G7 is about 25% faster than the Rex 7 5800U, so in this unplugged battle of the most powerful low-power CPUs, the Core i7-1195G7 comes out on top by a wide margin.
This also explains the question in Lei Li’s mind at the beginning of the article: why do we all use a thin and light book to work, do video, some people are efficient, some people use it for a long time? Intel has always attached importance to the performance release of the processor in real application scenarios, and for the modern office needs of users in the release of the 11th generation Core launched Evo platform (equipped with Core i7-1195G7 MSI ZunJue 14 through the According to Intel, Evo platform certified thin and light notebooks must pass over a hundred rigorous tests and meet the six quadrants of experience indicators, including consistent battery performance. As a result, the test also shows that the Core i7-1195G7’s performance dips to roughly 10% when on battery power, providing adequate performance for users’ mobile experiences in various scenarios, whereas the AMD Raider 5000 series of low-power processors with Zen 3 architecture provides long battery life, but it is based on a performance dip of 20% or more. In other words, if users are not connected to a power supply while traveling, the efficiency is lost. The Intel Core platform provides a reliable experience for thin and light notebooks with 11th generation Core processors through collaborative optimization of hardware and software, as well as the stringent Evo certification.
The consistent and stable performance in the unplugged state, in particular, protects users’ diverse and modern office experience.
If you want to work and study more efficiently, even in real mobile office scenarios, a thin and light book with Intel Core i7-1195G7 or other 11-generation Core processors is a better choice than one with AMD’s Raider 5000 series processors. If you need to work overtime when traveling out with colleagues in the future, the Intel 11 generation Core platform will not drag your feet, making work easier and helping you to close early deadlines.
