Samsung Galaxy book s first test: Intel Lakefield launched

With the release of Intel’s Lakefield processor, major notebook manufacturers have also built new products based on Lakefield, such as today’s leading role – Samsung Galaxy Book s. < / P > < p > the main features of Samsung Galaxy book s are light weight, durability and long endurance. At the same time, it is a standard Windows 10 laptop, which can bring a complete windows 10 experience. Of course, as one of the world’s first laptops equipped with Intel’s Lakefield processor, Samsung Galaxy book s is more concerned about its processor and its actual performance. < / P > < p > there is a big “book s” printed on the box of Samsung Galaxy Book S. when we take out the Samsung Galaxy book s from the box, we really realize its Implication – Samsung Galaxy book s is really like a book, small and light. It is no exaggeration to say that the Samsung Galaxy book s is only a little thicker than the magazine, but it is similar in length and width to our magazine. If Steve Jobs took out the MacBook Air from his portfolio, if you were to open the box for Samsung Galaxy book s this time, you might have the same amazing feeling when you saw the MacBook Air. < / P > < p > the Samsung Galaxy book s is 305.2mm × 203.2mm in length and width, which is a regular size compared with most other 13.3 inch laptops. However, thanks to the smaller package size of the processor and fan free design, the Samsung Galaxy book s is a regular size The thinnest part of the s fuselage is 6.2mm, and the thickest part is only 11.8mm, not to mention the surprising 6.2mm at the thinnest part. Even if the thickest 11.8mm is used to compare with most other 13.3 inch laptops, Samsung Galaxy book s also has a great advantage, let alone the naked weight of Samsung Galaxy book s is 950g. < / P > < p >} the thinnest part of Samsung Galaxy book s is only 6.2mm, and the thickest part is only 11.8mm. < / P > < p > let’s look at a set of comparative data. Compared with the lightweight LG gram 13.3, the thickest part of Samsung Galaxy book s is 11.8mm, and the weight of bare machine is 950g, while the thickness of LG gram 13.3 is 14.5mm and the weight of bare machine is 965G. It can be said that the Samsung Galaxy book s is not only thinner but also lighter. Such a lightweight body design has brought good portability and can be easily placed in a briefcase or backpack. Even when you go out, there is no burden on your hand. < / P > < p > in addition to being light and compact, the Samsung Galaxy book s is also fashionable in appearance. The machine is made of integrated aluminum alloy, which makes the machine more durable. At the same time, the overall workmanship of this machine is exquisite. Every detail from the surface of the product to the fuselage reflects the charm of high-end industrial manufacturing at present. It is full of metal texture and almost flawless, just like a delicate handicraft. In addition, the A-side design of Samsung Galaxy book s is very simple, and there are no other redundant elements except for a Samsung logo. The color matching of gilded gold brings high appearance value. Whether it’s office, home or in the street cafe, this machine can be well integrated into the decoration styles of different scenes. < / P > < p > Samsung Galaxy book s uses a 13.3-inch led mirror screen. The resolution of this screen is 1920 × 1080. At the same time, the screen also supports touch operation, which can be used with a stylus to improve the control efficiency, which is beneficial to online learning, remote conference and other scenarios. For the color performance of this screen, we use the Datacolor spyder5 Pro color calibrator to test its sRGB gamut coverage area is 96%, and adobe RGB gamut coverage area is 75%. We can see that Samsung Galaxy book s adopts a wide gamut screen, and a larger screen gamut coverage area can also meet the needs of more people. < / P > < p > because Samsung Galaxy book s has good portability, many people often use it outdoors, and there is stronger light outdoors. If the screen brightness of notebook is not high enough, we can’t see the content on the screen in the sun. The solution given by Samsung Galaxy book s is to add an “outdoor mode”. After the “outdoor mode” is turned on through the FN + O shortcut key, the screen brightness of this machine can be up to 600nit, so that we can easily see the contents on the screen outdoors. < / P > < p > as a light and thin book with a thickness of only 6.2mm, I didn’t expect much from the keyboard of Samsung Galaxy book s, but I didn’t expect that the keyboard of Samsung Galaxy book s still has obvious key range. From our experience, the keyboard of Samsung Galaxy book s is better than that of most iPads Pro’s external keyboard is much better, the key range is more obvious, the sense of paragraph is more sufficient, and press up a little “meat” feeling, the actual typing experience is not bad. That is to say, if you often use Samsung Galaxy book s to type, then most people can quickly adapt to its keyboard without affecting their work efficiency. In terms of interface, Samsung Galaxy book s has two usb-c interfaces, one 3.5mm audio interface and one microSD expansion slot. Due to the low-voltage processor, the Samsung Galaxy book s does not require high power supply. The power supply of this machine is very similar to a Samsung mobile phone charger, and Samsung Galaxy book s also supports PD 2.0 fast charging and QC 2.0 fast charging, so the power supply of this machine can also charge most mobile phones and tablets, and vice versa, that is, most mobile phones and tablet chargers can also charge Samsung Galaxy Book s. This is very convenient for business and travel. < / P > < p >} Samsung Galaxy book s is designed with two usb-c interfaces and one adapter in the box for daily use. < / P > < p > in addition, the power key of Samsung Galaxy book s is also integrated with fingerprint identification module, which can log into the system with one key when it is turned on, which is a highlight design in data security. < / P > < p > we will experience this Samsung Galaxy book s with Intel Core i5-l16g7 processor. Core i5-l16g7 is one of the first products in the Intel Lakefield processor family. This processor adopts a 1 + 4 solution, that is, a large core of sunny Cove architecture and four small cores of Tremont architecture are configured together, with a total of five cores and five threads. Core i5-l16g7 has 7W TDP, 4MB cache, core basic frequency of 1.4GHz, maximum single core frequency of 3.0GHz, and supports lpddr4x 4267 memory. What is the actual performance of this processor? First of all, we test its rendering performance with cinebench R20 software. Finally, this machine achieves 279pts of single thread and 600pts of multithreading. For core i5-l16g7, the performance is not bad. Compared with the core m3-8100y of Intel low-voltage Y Series, the performance of single thread is improved by about 17%, and that of multithreading is about 50%. However, compared with the common 10th generation core i5-10210u, the performance of core i5-l16g7 in cinebench R20 is only about 50% of the former. After all, the power consumption of core i5-l16g7 is only 7W, while that of core i5-10210u is 15W. < / P > < p >} when running cinebench R20 single thread, you can see that only one core is fully loaded, and the other four are basically “watching the play”. < / P > < p > when running the cinebench R20 multithreaded test, we also found that the processor core frequency of this machine can soar to the nominal 1.8GHz in a short time, and can maintain at around 2.6GHz in a relatively long time when running single thread test. Through the task manager, we can see five logical processors. When running cinebench R20 single thread, we can see that only one core is fully loaded, and the other four are basically “watching the show”. This also conforms to the characteristics of Lakefield processor: some computing tasks with high performance requirements can be handed over to sunny The cove core is responsible for these applications that require multithreading performance and the background workload are handled by the Tremont cluster. In terms of storage, Samsung Galaxy book s is equipped with 8GB lpddr4x 4267 single channel memory and 512gb eufs flash memory. The storage combination of 8GB + 512gb can meet the needs of daily office and entertainment. Moreover, this machine also supports the expansion of microSD card. Unlike most other notebooks, Samsung Galaxy book s does not use the traditional SSD, but uses eufs flash memory. Judging from the test results of crystal diskmark software, we think it should use 512gb eufs 3.0 flash memory, which greatly surpasses the SATA SSD, and is equivalent to nvme PCIe 3.0 x2 SSD, which can meet the daily needs of copying large files. In terms of graphics, Samsung Galaxy book s uses Intel UHD graphics core display built in core i5-l16g7. However, gpu-z software can not recognize this core display for the time being, and there is no detailed introduction to it on Intel’s official website. We do not know the specific model of this core display for the time being. According to the information disclosed, core i5-l16g7 is equipped with Intel’s 11th generation core graphics card. It has 64 EU units and the highest frequency can reach 0.5ghz. < / P > < p > in the 3dmark sky diver scenario, the machine scored a total of 3589 points, with a graphics score of 3687. From our previous test results, we believe that the performance of core i5-l16g7 built-in core display is close to that of core i5-10210u uhd620. In 1080p, low image quality, the average frame rate of this machine is 42.54fps, but we do not recommend that you use it to run the game, after all, the CPU power consumption is too low, plus the fan free design, it is not suitable for long-term running games. In terms of the performance of the whole machine, we verify it by pcmark8 and pcmark10. In pcmark 8’s “work” test scenario, the machine scored a total score of 2167. In the pcmark 10 benchmark, the machine scored 2386 total points, of which 5765 for “common basic functions” and 3420 for “productivity.”. In general, Samsung Galaxy book s has good performance, which can meet the daily office and entertainment needs. < / P > < p > laptops with low-voltage processors usually have another key focus – long endurance. Samsung Galaxy book s uses 42wh battery. Under the condition of “longer life” battery mode, 50% screen brightness and normal Wi Fi connection, we test the battery life time through pcmark10’s “modern office” scene. Finally, this machine achieves a brilliant result of 9 hours and 57 minutes, which means that the battery of this machine can last for about 10 hours in daily office. < / P > < p > in addition, we also play a video through the windows player under the condition of “longer battery life”, 50% screen brightness, 30% volume and normal Wi Fi connection [email protected] Local video to examine the actual power consumption of this machine. After one hour of continuous video playback, the machine consumes 8% of the power. It can be inferred that if only local video is played, its battery can last about 12.5 hours. If the power-saving mode is turned on, the performance may be better. < p > < p > Samsung Galaxy book s adopts fan less design, and the whole machine is passive cooling. How about its heat dissipation performance under high load? In 22.5 ℃ environment and external power mode, we bake CPU by aida64 software for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the maximum temperature on the surface of this machine is only 40.6 ℃, which is located in the middle of the top of the keyboard and the temperature of the rest of the keyboard
