First benchmark tests for the upcoming Chuwi FreeBook

New Chuwi’s laptop model is just around the corner and today we got its first benchmark results. So we can have some idea about its actual performance. Chuwi FreeBook will be a lightweight model with slim and stylish design. The 13.5-inch body weighs only about 1360g, and the thickness at the narrowest point is only 4mm. Its biggest highlight is that the screen can be flipped 360 degrees, which makes it suitable for multi-mode and multi-scene usage,

Armed with the latest generation of 2021 Intel Celeron N5100 processor, Intel UHD Graphics, 8GB LPDDR4 RAM  and 256GB high-speed SSD storage, FreeBook’s performance looks indeed promising. Especially with the very favourable price point.

Performance Configuration Overview

  • Intel Celeron N5100 Processor, 10nm Process
  • Intel UHD Graphics  
  • LPDDR4 8GB Dual Channel Memory
  • 256GB Nvme SSD
  • 2.4G+5G Dual-band WiFi
  • Full-featured USB Type-C Interface

Performance Tests

So let’s take a look at the several maninstream benchmark results for the new FreeBook. Including the obvious suspects like CPU-Z, Geekbench 4 or Cinebench. Although the benchmarking score does not represent the final experience, it has a certain reference.

Let’s start with detailed information of the processor via CPU-Z. Intel Celeron N5100 processor, 1.1GHz main frequency, Quad-core, and four threads, achieved 258.5 Single Thread running score and 976.5 Multi Thread running score on CPU-Z.

Then we can move to professional GeekBench 4 to test FreeBook and it the overall performance summary of the processor. Final score: 2782 for Single Core; 7011 for Multi-Core; 24855 for OpenCL.

Cinebench R15 running score, CPU: 316cb; OpenGL: 33.30fps. Due to the solid performance of the built-in Intel UHD Graphics, the performance in OpenGL is relatively good. And surely it will be a even better, when hard-decoding 4K videos or editing and rendering materials.


Finally, we get to the AS SSD Benchmark test. SSD drive is one of the hardware componenrs, that can affects daily usage the most. In many scenarios, such as booting or loading software, the read and write speed of SSD shows the clear superiority over traditional HDD. FreeBook uses NVMe SSD with a read speed up to 1318.32 MB/s and write speed up to 761.52MB/s. That’s very solid numbers, making software run and load extremely quickly without lag. Greatly improving the working efficiency.


Summary of the Performance Tests

We can conclude from the data above, that the overall performance of FreeBook looks pretty good, and it has no problems in dealing with various usage scenarios. Both daily office tasks and entertainment purposes should be smooth sailing. Software boots and loads quickly, and the response speed is very fast.

Strong Performance, ideal for both Office and Entertainment


As a slim and stylish laptop model, FreeBook is perfectly suitable for all daily office tasks and entertainment needs. And the 13.5-inch 2k Retina ultra-high-definition display will surely steal the show. The 3:2 screen ratio makes it more convenient for office scene and the full-size keyboard makes the content output more efficient.
