Newbie Friendly Haier Large Screen Performance Book Blade T5 In-depth Review


[Bestbuy618 Notebook Channel]Throughout this year’s chip market, the situation has gradually improved but remains pessimistic; this is reflected in the consumer electronics industry by the most intuitive performance of consumer demand versus market supply. Despite the chip shortage and the dual impact of industry crackdown, “mining tide” convergence, the original price to buy a popular version of the graphics card or game book products remains a luxury for consumers. Some graphics cards are exempt because they do not support mining by default, allowing consumers to obtain the necessary equipment at a lower cost – the RTX 3050 is one of them. The 11th generation Intel Core i5-11260H processor with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 as the core configuration of Haier Blade T5 debut, has become a dark horse market posture.

Haier Haier is a long-established domestic brand, in the field of home appliances Haier has a considerable industry voice, of course, its notebook product line, the product is mostly home, office, and other types of products, with the advantage of cheap and good quality by many users. This time on the market, the Blade T5 large screen performance of Haier notebooks is the first product of the new series “Blade,” taking into account office performance as well as fast gaming, let us see how Haier Blade T5 performance. The Haier Blade T5’s A-side features a full metal stamping process, and the design language is inspired by the ancestor of the Chinese war knife, the Han Blade, in a deep-space gray color scheme, with condensed lines that are harsh and powerful, and a spine that highlights the verve of the blade, all of which reflect traditional Chinese aesthetics of the atmosphere.

As a result, it appears that the body appearance and packaging contrasting style of the Haier Blade T5 is extremely obvious. Haier used a very plain white packaging as a large screen performance book with gaming attributes, rather than the “cool” packaging of mainstream products on the market. On the white packaging, the blue Haier logo, the Smart Home logo, and the lines of the laptop’s appearance are clearly visible.

The following is a family photo after unboxing, including the body, power cord set, warranty instructions, and Win 10 driver disk. The Haier Blade T5 B-side features a 15.6-inch IPS screen with FHD (1920 x 1080 resolution) and a high refresh rate of 144Hz, which shows better results when gaming with no screen tearing and very silky smooth.

The screen can cover 46 percent of the NTSC color gamut and 65 percent of the sRGB color gamut However, this is a trade-off in terms of product positioning and price; the C-side also retains a gray appearance, and the backlit keyboard’s 16 primary colors provide users with a variety of colors that can be freely adjusted in the control center. The key range is moderate, the rebound is quite strong, and the full-size keyboard and full-blooded directional keys are both praised.

The power supply interface is placed in the rear of the body, while the mini DP 1.4 interface and HDMI interface are also placed here, convenient alignment; the left side of the body for the audio interface, USB 2.0 interface, and a USB 3.2 Gen1 interface, the right side is set up with a multi-in-one card reader, RJ45 network port, and USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C interface, this interface is also able to maximize The actual perception is not as thick as the statistics suggest. The Haier Blade T5’s body weight of 2kg does not qualify as light, but if you have mobile office needs, this notebook can also adapt. The combination of the 11th generation Intel Core processor with NVIDIA RTX 3050 has become one of the most cost-effective options for entry-level consumers at a time when chip graphics and other products are in short supply and difficult to find for consumers.

The Haier Blade T5 is equipped with an Intel i5-11260H standard processor with 6 cores and 12 threads specifications, a 10nm process, Tiger Lake architecture, a benchmark frequency of 2.6GHz, a maximum acceleration frequency of 4.4GHz, a cache capacity of 12MB, and a TDP of 45W. The single-core test score is 534.8, and the multi-core score is 4020.2 according to CPU-Z. The multi-core score is already higher than the desktop 8 generation i7-8700K with the same thread specification, and the single-core score is very close.

The V-Ray performance test shows that the i5-11260H processor scored 6982 vsamples, which is not a bad performance. The 15 rounds of CineBench R20 tests show that the i5-11260H processor on the Blade T5 is still very stable, with all but the first round of test results being very stable and The i5-11260H even outperformed the i9-9900K in some CineBench R23 tests, scoring 9367 for multi-core and 1327 for single-core across multiple rounds of testing.

The new CPU Profile test results from 3D Mark testing software are as follows: The RTX 3050 is also a very cost-effective graphics card commonly used in entry-level gaming notebooks, with 2048 CUDA cores, an 8nm process, 4GB GDDR6 memory, a memory bit width of 128 bits, and a power consumption of 35W-80W. The base frequency is 1237MHz, and the acceleration frequency can reach 1.5GHz. Data related to 3D Mark software is shown in the table below. Overall, the RTX 3050 outperforms the previous generation of GTX 1650 Ti, and some of the test items can even catch up to the year’s dessert card, the GTX 1660Ti, with very good performance.

The RTX 3050 graphics card has many optimization features, support ray tracing technology, support Dynamic Boost 2.0, this technology can help the device to dynamically allocate power to the CPU and GPU, and DLSS 2.0 can also effectively improve the frame rate performance of the gaming experience, thanks to the new generation of technology.

The mainstream 3A masterpieces on the market can run smoothly on the Haier Blade T5. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the average frame rate is 51fps when using the highest preset quality, and 62fps when using the high preset quality, so it can play smoothly without pressure; in Total War: Three Kingdoms, the average frame rate is 40fps when using the very high quality (all other options are default), and the average frame rate is 58fps when choosing the next level of “higher quality” The game supports ray tracing and DLSS, and according to the results of multiple tests, the Blade T5 can get a smooth gaming experience when ray tracing is enabled, and when DLSS is enabled alongside ray tracing, the frame rate can improve significantly. (I tested Cyberpunk 2077 with the default ray tracing settings on throughout.) In fact, gaming isn’t the only thing this big screen performance book has to offer.

With the i5-11260H RTX 3050, the Haier Blade T5 can also perform well in productivity scenarios. In Lightroom Classic software, the capacity of about 20GB of 300 RAW format photos to 100% quality exported to jpg format in 4’03”; for many users, save PPT as PDF is a daily operation, the use of Haier Blade T5 will be 360 pages ppt exported to PDF format files in just 16 seconds, the performance is quite outstanding.

can improve performance, and video rendering can gain even more speed.

The Haier Blade T5 uses a dual-fan, four-copper tube, four-vent “Blade 2.0 cooling system” with four copper tubes in a 2 3 parallel layout, and copper cooling covers for the CPU and graphics card to improve cooling performance. The memory in this review sample is Samsung, with one 8GB 3200MHz memory in each of the two memory slots constituting a dual-channel 16GB, which can be replaced if you want to upgrade later; and an M.2 SSD This speed can only be described as moderate; it is sufficient to deal with the game’s daily tasks; however, if you want to get faster read and write speeds, they can be replaced.

Next, we use the torture test to evaluate the system’s stability and performance release: the room temperature is 20°C, performance mode is enabled, battery option is best performance, and fan speed is auto. After 30 minutes of single copy FPU, the Haier Blade T5’s CPU power consumption is stable at around 60W, frequency is at 3.5GHz, and CPU temperature is around 88°C, which is well controlled; after more than 30 minutes of double baking test, CPU power consumption is about 35W, frequency 2.6GHz, temperature 75°C; GPU power consumption is about 66W, frequency 1.24GHz, temperature 78.4°C; total power consumption of the device is 105W. During the double baking test, while measuring the device’s surface temperature, the maximum value appears in the air outlet below the screen, and the temperature is 57.7°C. Despite the excellent heat dissipation and overall device stability, one thing to note is that when the Blade T5 fan speed is fully open, the wind noise is relatively loud, so it is recommended to wear headphones when gaming or performing heavier tasks.

Disconnect the power, change the battery mode to “Longer Life,” the system mode to “Power Saving,” the volume and screen brightness to 50%, and the WiFi connection to “On.” Using PC Mark 10 professional software to work on the Haier Blade T5 benchmark endurance test, in the device remaining 20% of the power to open the power saving mode test is completed, measured Blade T5 endurance time of 5h12min, compared to some gaming notebooks or very long life advantage, daily office emergency is sufficient If you want to fully utilize the device’s performance, make sure to plug in the use of electricity. As a brand that dares to innovate, Haier never wants to stay in the comfort zone. The performance of the Blade T5 large screen is the result of Haier venturing outside of its comfort zone this time.

Overall, the Blade T5 uses a fairly cost-effective core configuration, though some configurations show a “knife,” which is acceptable given the competitive pricing of this entry-level performance book. The Haier Blade T5 has a lot of the shadow of the family brand products, and I believe that in the future, we can explore a set of Haier unique design and configuration characteristics.

The Blade T5 is more suitable for those who do not pursue the ultimate performance of entry-level users of gaming notebooks, or for those who need some graphics or productivity load capacity, to play a little 3A masterpiece in the rest of the user, very cost-effective price and configuration.
