74.8% Chuwi CoreBook X Pro laptop review: 120 Hz display for cheap | Notebookcheck
The CoreBook X Pro is the least expensive 15.6-inch laptop you can find with a 120 Hz panel. The catch, however, is you'll have to deal with substantial cut corners to major aspects of the system.
79% Chuwi CoreBook XPro 15.5" Review: A Great 120Hz Laptop ... for Spreadsheets?
Source: Make Use Of English
Chuwi's design team built a laptop that successfully competes with large manufacturers. Unfortunately, the lack of a dedicated graphics card means its 120Hz display won't live up to its potential for gaming. But none of that is terrible, given its price. Unfortunately, what is terrible is that Chuwi requires you to pay ship-in costs to China on returns. But if you can stomach its warranty, Chuwi's CoreBook is the best laptop under $500 for productivity and for video playback. However, there are laptops for $750 and 800 which also have 120Hz displays and a discrete graphics card, which I would advise buying instead if it's within your budget.

Chuwi Corebook X Pro Review: Gaming Laptop For Just $500
Source: Awaqua English
After one week of testing the new model of the Chuwi Corebook X Pro gaming laptop, I was left with both positive and negative emotions. Of the advantages, the device stands out for the presence of good materials used. Also, the laptop case was well assembled and executed. In addition, I liked the performance of the processor, both in real life and in synthetic tests. You can also easily install additional RAM and built-in memory in the device. The backlit keyboard will definitely not be a superfluous feature, as well as the presence of a full-fledged SD card slot. I also liked the battery life with a good 70 Wh of capacity and fast charging. But the main disadvantage for me was the screen, since the color gamut was not the best in its class. Other than that, I didn’t really like the maximum screen brightness of 230 nits. The device also made a little noise under heavy loads and tasks. At the same time, the quality of sound and webcam did not have the best indicators.

Comment

Chuwi:


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Kaby Lake Y-series processors (4.5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with Update to 1050 MHz depending on the CPU Model.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655: Integrated graphics card (GT3e), which is used for some Coffee Lake-U CPUs (28 Watts).

Intel Iris Graphics 550: Integrated GPU (GT3e) with 48 EUs and dedicated eDRAM memory found on some Skylake CPU models (28 W series).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Kaby Lake:

m3-7Y30: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.0-2.6 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter and is manufactured in a 14 nm process.

Intel Coffee Lake:

i5-8259U: Coffee Lake based SoC (System on a Chip) for medium-sized notebooks. Integrates four CPU cores clocked at 2.3-3.8 GHz as well as an Iris Plus Graphics 655 GPU clocked at 300 - 1050 MHz with 128 MB eDRAM. Manufactured in a 14nm process. The TDP of 28 Watts is much higher than the regular ULV quad-cores at 15W.

Intel Core i3:

6157U: Skylake-based dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated Iris Graphics 550 GPU with eDRAM memory and is manufactured in 14 nm. Clocks at 2.4 Ghz without Turbo Boost.

1.05 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.811 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
