Three years ago, Huawei entered the ultrabook market through its MateBook series. Now, Huawei is going to challenge the toppest models in the niche. Today, it launched the Huawei MateBook 16. As the name implies, this laptop comes with a 16-inch screen. But it also comes with a 54W Ryzen 5000H standard pressure processor.
Huawei MateBook 16 Hardware
The AMD Ryzen 5000H high-performance processor is built on a 7nm Zen3 architecture. The IPC performance is increased by 19% compared to the previous generation. Plus, it improves frequency – single-core and multi-core performance is increased by more than 20%.
However, this is not the only version. There is also the Ryzen 7 5800H processor variant. This is an 8-core 16-thread high-end processor with an acceleration frequency of up to 4.4GHz. The default TDP power consumption is 45W. But Huawei has further optimized and improved it.
The Huawei MateBook 16 uses AMD’s integrated Radeon core display, which comes with 8 groups of CU units, with a frequency of up to 2GHz. The 3D graphics performance is comparable to the MX350’s independent display level.
Plus, they come with a 16GB dual-channel DDR4 memory and a 512GB PCIe SSD hard drive. The overall system performance does not leave dead ends.
For notebooks, everyone knows that heat dissipation is actually the bottleneck that limits performance. The Huawei MateBook 16 notebooks can achieve 54W performance also due to the upgrade of the new shark fin cooling system.
The new shark fin cooling system is equipped with two 75mm+ gaming-grade fans and two horn-shaped pure copper heat pipes. The air volume has increased by 30%, and the company also added two independent air outlets.
In addition to controlling the temperature, the noise of the notebook is also very easy to affect the experience. For this reason, Huawei has optimized the fan blade radian and focused on controlling the abnormal sound protruding ratio. This indicator is a measure of the heat dissipation abnormal noise. One of the key points is that Huawei’s shark fin system suppresses it within 5dB.
Huawei MateBook 16 Display
The Huawei MateBook 16 notebook’s screen supports a 2.5K high resolution and a 3:2 productivity ratio. Compared with a 16:9 screen, it can display more content in the same size.
Since this time the MateBook 16 pays more attention to professional applications, the large 16-inch screen not only supports 100% sRGB color gamut and 10bit color depth, but also has worked hard on color accuracy.
With the high quality of average ΔE=1, the MateBook 16 has also become the first notebook in the PC industry to pass the TÜV Rheinland professional color standard certification. In addition, the MateBook 16 also supports DC dimming and blue light eye protection, which is also necessary for designers, because long-term viewing of pictures is easy to visual fatigue.
The touchpad area of this notebook has increased by 46% compared to the previous generation. Multi-screen collaboration can now open 3 smartphone application screens.
The laptop supports 135W fast charge and can achieve 12.5 hours of battery life.
In terms of price, the R5 5600H/16GB+512GB version is 6299 yuan ($979), and the R7 5800H/16GB+512GB version is 6799 yuan ($1056).
