  1. Benchmarks or it didn't happen
  2. Lets see the benchmarks
  3. I'm curious about the size of the battery in these new Haswell laptops. Despite having similar hardware to the MB Air they still don't get the 12-hour battery life, why?
  4. Intel Iris Pro, featuring the best of graphics technology from a decade ago.
  5. I wonder how much intel bribed them to use iris pro?

    $1000+, 1080P 14" screen, 10 fps, priceless.
  6. You still bottleneck with the inferior graphics, and then a 5400 rpm hdd?

    Maybe a bargain at a flea market, if I'm paying flea market prices...

  7. A long time ago Intel came out with its first "respectable" integrated graphics (complete with hardware T&L). Problem was there were no drivers. It took them more than two year to fully enable everything. course by then it was so outdated it was pointless. While I'm sure that things are a little better, the only worse than Intel's graphics are Intel's graphic drivers. They may finally make some decent hardware they're good at making chips but I'm not expecting much on the software side.
  8. i looked at the benchmarks and it looks pretty darn good@1650
  9. Am I the only one who laughs at axonometric photographs of laptops? You know, the whole shadow underneath the laptop, the portion photoshoppped out replaced with that shadow to make laptops look thinner? lol

    Companies aren't really focused on engineering aspects of a desire to innovate parts into each other, resign them for better airflow or to reduce size, etc. This is why Apple was able to make laptops as thin as they did till now that were relatively powerful (Macbook Pro). Most companies just take a bunch of components and try to throw em together, any redesigning will cost them money. So take companies like Lenovo where size isn't really of concern, and they stick together a bunch of components and thats it. Instead of redesigning everything to make it thinner, and then as a final step, add a bigger battery getting to the same size as they had before but achieving more battery, companies just chose the easiest route. At least this is my opinion...

    Read a German review (don't recall where, unfortunately), that put the general productivity battery life at around 4-5 hours with Battery Eater Pro. This laptop is based on the Clevo W740SU and has a 53WHr battery, which with 47W i7-4570HQ, 4 to 5 hours sounds about right.

    But, keep in mind that this is a full-fledge mobile CPU, not a ULV like you'd find in the MacBook Air. The Air may be able to last 12 hours, but the 4570HQ gives a solid 2 to 3 times more performance and double the cores/threads (and that's compared to the highest spec'd options the Air has to offer right now).

  13. You can opt for a 500GB 7200 drive for free. Or a 750 Momentus Xt Hybrid for $77
    They claim 6 hours on battery.
    There are plenty of options.
  14. People bashing intel should really go read the Anandtech article on iris pro 5200. The fact iris pro beats out the a10 and is just around 1-3% behind the 650 definitely justifies its price point. Also its intel we are talking about usually games are unplayeble with their igu or have to be ran on low this is a huge improvement for intel and can run a crap ton of modern games on medium. Also if this thing gets better drivers who know it might beat the 750m.

  16. Intel Iris 5200 definitely packs a bite and Broadwell will be even better. For light gaming it looks awesome from the benchmarks.
    Wish Intel would concentrate on single core CPU performance improvements though, improvements have been greatly slowing down over the years.

  19. I just asked online support. The guy says its about 1.9kg and with default/original configuration its around 6 hours battery life.
  20. Iris Pro 5200 is the first time I've ever looked at intel graphics, and thought they were decent. The Iris Pro was actually outperforming the A10, and competing between the GT640 and 650M, in Anandtech's benchmarks. Which is crazy good performance for an Intel APU.

    Maybe it's Crystalwell? 128mb of eDRAM on package, is an almost excessive solution to address the APU bandwidth issue.... The Xbox One reportedly used 32mb of eDRAM since when used as a cache, diminishing returns kick in at 32mb. Intel's 128mb of eDRAM L4 cache would be, under that logic, built with a lot of future proofing in mind.

    Anyway though, the current performance still falls under the category of "not good enough" for me personally, but maybe in a few years Intel APUs will be there. It'll be interesting to see if this effects pricing on lower end AMD and Nvidia discreet mobile GPUs, like the 650m.
  21. So for $1k I can choose between this 14" laptop with an integrated GPU or the 13.3" Sager NP7330 with an i7 4700QM and GTX765M and both weigh just about 2 kg and have full had screens. That's not even a choice. Now take this laptop and give it an amd a10 5750m, price it at about $600-750 and it'd be a heck of a deal.
  22. My A10 laptop cost $505 and it plays Borderlands2, DC Universe Online, Skyrim and Arkham Asylum. Sure, resolution is not as good but mine cost HALF as much money!
    HALF! Take that iris..

    thats 51% slower than the 640m at 900p, 1080p to match the screen specs will be even further behind. Drop the blue intel crack pipe. If both systems are $1000 (and they are) wich will you buy?
  24. Waiting for AMD's next gen of APU's "forever." Hurry up with Kabini, even Intel is starting to smoke AMD, with three generations of tech since the last real update from AMD (renaming the Graphics part of the chips doesn't make them faster.)

    I love rooting for the underdog, but AMD is starting to look more like an endangered species... I just hope ATI products don't "go down with the ship" if AMD fails to deliver.
  25. Benchmark: cyberpower = fail
  26. Without a dedicated graphics card, this doesn't belong in the gaming category. I like to see laptop with this chip however, just don't call it gaming. Unless you're talking about Facebook games.
