The recently launched Chuwi CoreBook Pro is a 13 inch full-screen laptop which specializes itself in mobile productivity. A great timing as due to the pandemic many of us have been forced to work from home and transform our personal space in a productive place. The laptop also packs some very interesting features such as the light and thin body for a 13 inch laptop, a 3:2 aspect ratio and much more.
Chuwi CoreBook Pro Performance Tested, Great for Productivity while Staying Compact
But what about performance? Well, coming with an Intel Core i3 processor, Iris 550 graphics card, 8GB of RAM and 256GB high-speed SSD storage, the laptop is able to go through most tasks without issues. Today the brand decided to prove that with some additional testing.
Before we get into then numbers though, let’s quickly recap the main specs on the CoreBook Pro:
- Intel Core i3-6157U processor
- Iris Graphics 550 core graphics card
- 8GB DDR4 dual-channel memory
- 256GB high-speed SSD storage
- Intel WireLess-AC 7265 wireless module
- Full-featured USB Type-C
- Support M.2 PCIE SSD expansion
Chuwi CoreBook Pro running points test
The laptop was tested with several mainstream benchmark software such as CPU-Z, Geekbench 4, Cinebench for CoreBook Pro. The running points can be a reference, though they don’t represent the final experience.
First of all, we have CPU-Z to see the details of the i3 processor clocked at 2.4GHz and dual-core four threads. Its final result is Single Thread：240.0；Multi Thread：671.5.
Then the laptop went through the benchmark software GeekBench 4 which can test the overall performance of the processor. And its final result is Single Core：3009；Multi Core：6240；OpenCL：47790.
The result of the Cinebench R15 is CPU：237cb；OpenGL：56.64fps. You can find that due to the excellent performance of the built-in Iris 550 graphics card, the performance of OpenGL is relatively good. There’s also a better experience when hard decoding 4K video or editing and rendering materials.
Next, AS SSD Benchmark was used for the last test. The SSD is one of the hardware parts that most affects daily use. When you open or use some software, both read and write data depend on SSD speeds. The write and read speed of SSD is many times better compared to the traditional HDD. In the case of CoreBook Pro, the reading speed is 518.75 MB/s and 458.88 MB/s for the writing speed. Such read and write speeds are very fast and will bring a great user experience most daily applications.
Summary of results
In conclusion, the performance of CoreBook Pro is pretty good. There is no problem in dealing with many scenarios such as office use and entertainment. Even running design software or light video editing should be quite smooth.
Powerful performance for productivity
As a productivity laptop, Chuwi CoreBook Pro has many advantages such as the 3:2 aspect ratio for comfortable reading and typing experience. It’s also lightweight, thus very portable and it has a full-size keyboard for a better work flow.
Besides, as we just saw in the performance tests above, the laptop brings more than enough power for productivity purposes.
