The upgraded CoreBook X wants to come into a spotlight as a real productivity notebook with a metal body. It also offers 14-inch 3:2 productivity screen and intel Core i5-8259U processor with integrated Iris Plus 655 GPU. It has the large memory batch of 8GB+512GB, but also supports memory expansion on top of that. Today we are going to take a look at the actual performance of the CoreBook X by running professional software tests.
The i5-8259U of the new CoreBook X is certainly the biggest upgrade. From the CPU-Z test results, it can be concluded, that the i5-8259U is a high-performance mobile processor. Previously, this processor was only used on Apple MacBook Pro notebooks and Intel NUC Mini PC, so it’s obviously a tried and tested one.
New 3:2 aspect ratio for the display
Another major feature of new CoreBook X is the 14-inch 3:2 screen. The IPS screen with a resolution of 2160×1440 has a high 72%NTSC color gamut and 5mm narrow frame using the full fitting process. The ultra-high screen ratio certainly improves the viewing quality and experience.
We tested the real performance of the new CoreBook X in all aspects with two common software applications, Geekbench and Cinebench R15. In the Geekbench test, the single core score of the new CoreBook X is 4452, the multi-core score is 15602 and the graphics card OpenCL gets a score of 46395. Which is much higher, than the previous generation.
CINEBENCH R23 is a processor test software based on Cinem4D engine, that tests the performance of CPU and graphics cards by rendering high-precision pictures and 3D graphics. Finally, Cinebench R23 showed that the CPU score of the new CoreBook X was 979pts, and the polynucleus score was 3517pts. Which is a result close to that of Core i7-1165G7. All things considered, the new laptop is very well equipped to handle common graphics rendering.
Ready for all the multimedia
In the software application part, we used 4k audio and video games to test the daily application performance of the new CoreBook X. When playing 4K video, it is smooth without stutter, the picture quality is clear and gorgeous. and the sound is full and pure. All of that shows the strong audio and video decoding of its processor i5-8259U and Iris Plus Graphics 655.
In terms of game experience the laptop is capable to maintain 1080p resolution and mid-range picture quality in CS:GO. All that with above 70fps average, so this can also be a pretty solid machine for basic gaming.
To sum up, the overall test data and scores of the newly upgraded CoreBook X belong to the upper-middle level. It is a comprehensive and excellent productivity laptop that is ideal for almost anybody. The new CoreBook X will be available online from May 17th 2021, and a special promotion for it will be launched on Synchronize.
