Reviews for the Asus VivoBook S15 S510UN, i7 8550U

61% Asus VivoBook S15 Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Asus Vivobook S15 seems like a half-hearted attempt at making a mainstream laptop that is thin and light and packs-in the latest hardware. While it offers impressive specifications it does disappoint on a few (but critical) basics.

80% Asus VivoBook S15 review: Elegant looks, beastly performance
Source: Gadget Show English
All-in-all, VivoBook S15 for us has might just be a new benchmark in the 'everyday use' laptop category with some of the newest set of specs, pleasing design, and an aggressive price tag.

NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
