Razer Blade Stealth i7-1065G7 Iris Plus Laptop Review: The Cheaper GeForce MX150 is Faster

86% Razer Blade Stealth i7-1065G7 Iris Plus Laptop Review: The Cheaper GeForce MX150 is Faster

Ice to meet you. Razer has jumped in on the 10 nm Ice Lake bandwagon to exploit the new power-efficient Intel Iris Plus GPU. While the resulting performance is where we expect it to be, the $1500 starting price makes this a tough buy when the less expensive Blade Stealth GeForce MX150 version is the better gaming machine.

88% Lenovo Yoga C940-14IIL Laptop Review: Premium Ice Lake convertible is a strong competitor for the Dell XPS 13

Ice Lake Yoga. Lenovo wants to bring its premium Yoga convertible to the next level, with the help of the latest Ice Lake CPUs from Intel. Compared with the predecessor, Lenovo has not changed much and instead has opted to work on a few weak-points. In our review, this strategy certainly pays off!

The Ultimate Core i7-1065G7 and Ryzen 7 3700U/2700U CineBench comparison: How does Intel Ice Lake hold up against 15 other AMD Ryzen laptops?

The Ultimate Core i7-1065G7 and Ryzen 7 3700U/2700U CineBench comparison: How does Intel Ice Lake hold up against 15 other AMD Ryzen laptops?

It takes more than just one or two laptops or one or two scores to call a verdict like so many articles tend to do. We compare the Ice Lake-powered Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 with at least a dozen other AMD laptops in a CineBench stress test to see which laptop comes out fastest. Interestingly, results are mixed and even closer than what you might expect.

The Intel Athena Poster Child. With mobile AMD Ryzen finally catching up to Intel's long-running ULV Core U series, all eyes have been on Ice Lake and Comet Lake-U to see how Intel would respond. Pressure has been on Dell to knock it out of the park with its second generation XPS 13 2-in-1 especially since it is the first to ship with the Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7. The flagship convertible mostly succeeds with a few caveats.

Ultrabook-gaming hybrid. The Zenbook 15 is one of the very few laptops equipped with an Intel U-series CPU and a GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU for an impressive level of gaming performance relative to the compact chassis size. It strikes an excellent balance between the portability and long runtimes of a traditional Ultrabook while offering enough GPU power to play the latest games at 1080p. ScreenPad 2.0 looks crisper and feels smoother than before, but its associated price premium remains a tough sell.
