  • You’re not getting an M1 chip, but performance is excellent

    This 8-core, 16-thread CPU from AMD is one powerful beast. It matches Intel’s competing Core i7–1165G7 in single-core tasks, but shoots far ahead in multi-core tests. GPU performance is a mixed bag and generally falls behind the G7’s excellent Xe graphics chip, however.

    Paired with a fast NVMe SSD and 16 GB RAM, performance in day-to-day tasks is superb. There’s no stuttering in Chrome or when editing large images in apps like Gimp. Editing 8-bit H.264 footage in 4K was also quite manageable in DaVinci Resolve. High bit-rate H.265 footage did result in some stuttering, however.

    Light gaming is possible on this platform. Frame-rates rarely dropped below 60 in CS:GO at 1080p max settings, and I saw a 45 fps average in the more demanding Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 720p low settings.

    Given how powerful this CPU is, I’m comfortable recommending this laptop to programmers and even content creators working with 1080p or 8-bit 4K footage.

    One thing I forgot to mention is battery life, which came in at an astonishing 14.5 hours (with the display set to 120 nits or around 50 percent).
