Intel Core i5-1155G7 debut: VAIO SX12 laptop review

Subnotebook size with modern Ultrabook power. Just because you're small doesn't mean you can't perform like the big boys. The 12.5-inch Vaio SX12 may be tiny when compared to the usual 13-inch or 15-inch Ultrabook, but its 11th gen processor and FHD IPS display are just as fast and capable.

There are plenty of Ultrabooks to choose from in the 13- to 15-inch range. Once you move down to 12 inches or smaller, however, options become much more narrower especially if you want a standard clamshell laptop with the same Core U-series processor as found on the larger models. The Vaio SX12 is one of the few 12.5-inch laptops equipped with 11th gen Intel Tiger Lake-U series CPUs for a performance level more akin to a full-fledged Ultrabook instead of a typical subnotebook.

Our configuration in review includes the Core i5-1155G7 CPU and 512 GB NVMe SSE for approximately $1300 USD retail. Users may configure with the higher-end Core i7-1195G7 with 1 TB storage instead, but all configurations otherwise come with no discrete graphics and the same 16 GB LPDDR4x-4266 RAM and 1080p non-touch IPS display. There are not many alternatives to the SX12 since 12-inch subnotebooks are uncommon, but the Surface Laptop Go, Lenovo ThinkPad A285, or the Dell latitude 5200 series can be seen as competitors.

Case — Under 2 Pounds

The SX12 utilizes similar thin metal materials as on the SX14 for a similar look and feel. Thus, the model prioritizes low weight over chassis rigidity in a similar manner to the Dynabook Portege X30L, Samsung Galaxy Book Pro, or LG Gram series. Pushing down on the keyboard center or outer lid, for example, would cause their surfaces to visibly flex more so than on the heavier XPS 13 or Razer Blade Stealth. This is especially true of the lid which lacks Gorilla Glass reinforcement. Nonetheless, the model was designed with this flexing in mind and so any minor warping or twisting will not necessarily cause any damage. It still feels and looks like a luxury unit even if it's not nearly as sound or unyielding as most other high-end Ultrabooks.

At just under 900 g, the SX12 is unsurprisingly much more portable than most other laptops. Its overall size is bigger than expected, however, as even the XPS 13 is smaller in volume despite its larger 13.3-inch screen size. The thin chassis skeleton of the SX12 is likely responsible for both the low weight and high susceptibility to flexing as noted above.

Connectivity — Lots of Options

Port options are identical to the larger SX14 despite their size and weight differences. The model even manages to integrate a RJ-45 port which is a rarity on Ultrabooks these days. Most ports are located along the right edge, however, which can be annoying when using an external mouse because of all the protruding cables.

Maintenance

Accessing the internals is relatively easy as it requires only a Philips screwdriver and a sharp edge. Unlike most other laptops, users must remove the keyboard deck instead of the bottom cover for any servicing. 

Owners have direct access to the M.2 2280 PCIe4 x4 storage slot, M.2 2242 WAN slot, and the internal battery. There are unfortunately no antennae included for end-user WAN installation while both the RAM and WLAN modules are soldered

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. The usual one-year limited warranty applies.

Input Devices — Spacious, But Could Be Better

Keyboard

The keyboard is more comfortable for typing than we initially expected from a 12-inch form factor. The keys are reasonably sized and with feedback in between that of the softer XPS 13 and crisper Spectre 13 keys. Clatter is slightly louder as a result which we don't really mind.

Keep in mind that the keyboard keys on the pink and white laptop color options are white whereas the keys are black on the silver, black, and dark blue laptop color options. Since the keyboard backlight is also white, the white keys can be hard to identify because they contrast poorly together. This was perhaps an oversight during development as a different keyboard backlight color would have avoided this problem.

Annoyingly, the keyboard backlight can only be controlled via the Vaio Control Center software and not by any hotkeys.

Touchpad

The Precision touchpad is expectedly small at just 8.2 x 4.5 cm. Its surface is otherwise smooth and reliable with only a bit of sticking when gliding at slower speeds to aid in precision. Meanwhile, the dedicated mouse buttons make drag-and-drop actions easier to perform when compared to most clickpads with no dedicated buttons at all. Unfortunately, the buttons here are shallow with relatively weak and ununiform feedback; clicking on the buttons along their respective edges have spongier feedback than if clicking near their centers.

Display — High Quality 12.5-inch Panel

The Chi Mei N125HCG-GQ1 IPS panel is the first to appear in our database. It's one of the very few 12.5-inch panels with full sRGB coverage and a very deep contrast ratio relative to other IPS displays. The main drawbacks are the slow black-white and gray-gray response times which aren't unexpected given that the SX12 is not a gaming machine. Nonetheless, expect some noticeable ghosting during most scenarios.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
41.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.6 ms rise
↘ 22 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 97 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 95 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21833 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance — Small Size, Big Performance

 

Testing Conditions

Our unit was set to Performance mode via the pre-installed Vaio Control Center software for the highest possible benchmark scores. Owners should become familiar with this software as key features are toggled here including the keyboard backlight behavior, Function key shortcuts, IR camera sensor, and more.

Processor

CPU performance from the uncommon Core i5-1155G7 is impressive with results that are 20 percent faster than the average laptop in our database with the Core i5-1135G7. In fact, the CPU here is able to outperform many other laptops with the supposedly faster Core i7-1165G7 including the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 15.

Interestingly, performance would dip during the start of our CineBench R15 xT loop test before recovering thereafter as shown by our graph below.

Storage Devices — PCIe4 x4 Support

Our unit comes configured with a 512 GB Samsung PM9A1 which is one of the fastest consumer-based PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSDs currently available. Perhaps more impressively, the drive can maintain its very high transfer rates for extended periods when under our DiskSpd loop test despite the small chassis size.

GPU Performance — Iris Xe With Dual-Channel RAM

Graphics performance is excellent with 3DMark results that are 30 to 35 percent higher than the average laptop with the same integrated Iris Xe 80 EUs GPU. The faster results can be partly attributed to the 16 GB of dual-channel RAM as many 11th gen Intel Core i5 laptops would typically come with single-channel RAM instead. Upgrading to the Core i7 SKU with Iris Xe 96 EUs graphics is expected to improve GPU performance by about 15 percent over our Core i5 configuration.
