Outdated Comet Lake CPU in the Huawei MateBook 14 is only convincing when it comes to battery life

Outdated Comet Lake CPU in the Huawei MateBook 14 is only convincing when it comes to battery life
The Huawei MateBook 14 still relies on Intel Comet Lake. The outdated 14-nanometer chips can't convince in our test in terms of CPU performance; the MateBook 14 AMD is vastly better with its Ryzen 4000 processor. The Intel CPU only shows its strengths when it comes to battery life.

About six years ago, Intel launched the first generation of 14-nanometer CPUs with the Broadwell series. Six years later, the manufacturing process, which was itself brought to market belatedly at the time, is still in use. In laptops, it's found in the form of Comet Lake CPUs - processors that are doubly outdated because their architecture is also still based on the Skylake CPUs from 2015.

As a result, laptops that use Intel Comet Lake have to struggle with the fact that their technical foundation is half a decade old - it's no wonder that they can no longer keep up with the competition in terms of performance.

An example of this is the Huawei MateBook 14 Intel that we recently subjected to extensive testing. In a direct comparison with the AMD model that we also reviewed simultaneously given the opportunity, the MateBook with Comet Lake doesn't stand the slightest chance in terms of CPU performance. Although the Huawei MateBook 14 AMD also has an AMD Ryzen 4000 H-series processor that can consume more, the AMD version would have been much faster even with a ULV processor like the AMD Ryzen 7 4700U.

However, the Intel model does have one advantage: Power consumption is a whole lot lower, and this is also reflected in the battery life. In the end, there's indeed a reason to prefer the Huawei MateBook 14 Intel to the Huawei MateBook 14 AMD.

I was an ardent reader of Notebookcheck’s laptop reviews even back in school. After writing reviews as a hobby, I then joined Notebookcheck in 2016 and have worked on device reviews and news articles ever since then. My personal interest lies more with laptops than smartphones, with business laptops being the most interesting category for me. Technology should make our lives and work easier and good laptops are an essential tool for that to happen. This is why laptop reviews are not just my work but are also my passion.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
