The ultimate problem with the intel platform is that it can't sustain the performance it initially offers, has to run hot, loud and eats more battery. Intel still has "something" to offer on desktop but on laptops they can't compete.

I have a question.... Why does almost every benchmarks forget about ryzen 7 4800h? Wasn't the i7 placed in the level?
I'm pretty sure TechSpot just haven't tested it yet, so they have no 4800H data to compare to.
That’s right. We didn’t get one to test in time for this review. We have one now though, if all goes well expect that review next week.

On the Microsoft excel benchmark it says higher is better. Typo maybe?

Editor's note: Now corrected, thanks!

I am not buying an Intel laptop... period... so OEMs, get your s*** together.

Well unfortunately that may never happen. Ian Cutress (Senior editor at Anandtech and review fellow for over 10 years) made a comment about Intel incentivizing companies to NOT make AMD based products.


It's an assumption to think the same would apply to laptops and I only say this because of their track history. I hope this is looked into more.

If at least these Intel powered laptop would be priced correctly...
They are not bad products, but they are too expensive for what they are. A 6700HQ with 4 more cores and lower frequency in multi core (6700HQ runs at 3.1Ghz all core with 25W using undervolt).

You gotta give it to the 4900HS. Performance is on average higher, single threaded is not miles away, and it'll be vastly more power efficient. That means less heat, less noise from the cooling, and considerably longer battery life. There is every chance they could even end up a couple hundred bucks cheaper.

Yep pretty impressed. It certainly got my attention.

I'd say this is a pretty safe bet.
