Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Book S Intel

85.1% Samsung Galaxy Book S Laptop Review: Lakefield with initial problems | Notebookcheck
Samsung now also offers its compact Galaxy Book S with an Intel processor. Compared to the ARM model, you get better compatibility with apps, but in return there is no LTE modem and the battery runtimes are also shorter. We checked if there are any other differences between the two models.
80% Samsung Galaxy Book S (Intel) review: Slimline supreme
Source: Pocket Lint English
A lightweight looker that - despite the battery life being about 25 per cent less than the Qualcomm equivalent - is still a decent daily driver, with full access to Windows 10 Home and all that apps that you'll need.

Samsung Galaxy Book S Shoot-Out: Intel Lakefield Vs. Snapdragon 8cx
Source: Hot Hardware English
We began this shoot-out thinking that the full x86 compatibility of the Core i5-L16G7 was going to be nothing but an asset. Coming into this, we expected better single-threaded performance, similar battery life thanks to Lakefield's low TDP, and full x86 compatibility. In the end, we got the full x86 compatibility, but the rest of the numbers didn't look very good. Overall, of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx's performance relative to the Core i5-L16G7 is excellent and the battery life for the Arm-based system is in another league. As a result, we have to give this version of the Galaxy Book S a pass.

Intel UHD Graphics G7 (Lakefield GT2 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Lakefield G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). Similar to the Iris Plus G7 in Ice Lake CPUs but with a much lower clock speed of only 200 - 500 MHz and therefore only performing on a level with the Intel UHD Graphics 620. The Lakefield chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

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

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
