Recently, Intel finally released the core 11 processor, code-named “Tiger Lake”. Compared to previous generations of processors, the biggest change of core 11 is to abandon the 14-nanometer architecture used for many years and adopt the 10-nanometer, so it has a big improvement in performance. The core 11 has been unlocked, and many notebook manufacturers are starting to use it. As a lightweight productivity tool representative, Lenovo YOGA 13S is also one of the first released products. It has not only excellent performance, but also maintain the YOGA series has always been exquisite quality.
Eleven generation performance comprehensive upgrade core
Performance improvement can be said to be one of the biggest highlights of the Lenovo YOGA 13S, let’s start with the configuration, take a look at the Lenovo YOGA 13S. The Lenovo YOGA 13S is powered by an all-new 11-generation Core processor, the Intel Core I5-1135G7, an Intel Iris Xe Core, and an enhanced LPDDR4X 4266Mhz memory and 512GB PCIe Gen4 SSD.
First, take a look at the Intel Core I5-1135G7, an 11th-generation Core processor. It is based on the advanced 10nm SuperFin process, which finally gets rid of the 14nm one and adopts the new “Tiger Lake” architecture. In terms of paper data, it is very different from previous generations of processors. Its main frequency is 2.4GHz, and its core frequency is up to 4.2GHz. It has 8 threads with 4 cores, a three-level cache of 8MB, and ITS TDP has been upgraded to 28W.
The performance improvement of the Intel Core I5-1135G7 was also evident, as we tested its performance with multiple software applications. Among them, the multi-core score of CPU-Z was 2438.2, and the single-core score was 476.8. The multi-core score of Cinebcnch R15 is 806CB, and the single-core score is 161CB. The multi-core score of Cinebcnch R20 is 1915CB and the single-core score is 408CB. The final score in chess was 15,648 points.
The reason why the core 11 has gained so much attention is because of the significant improvements in core performance. It comes with the Intel Iris Xe. It operates at a frequency of 400mhZ-1300mhz and has up to 96 execution units. The Intel Iris Xe core display also performed very well in 3DMark graphics capability tests. Results of Sky Diver mode were 13560 points, Fire Strike mode 4415 points, and Time Spy mode 1545 points. In addition, we ran DOTA2 with the Lenovo YOGA 13s. In the high-effect environment, its frames are always above 60, which further proves its powerful graphics processing power.
In addition to the power of its 11-generation core processor, the Lenovo YOGA 13S is also impressive in other ways. Its 512GB PCIe Gen4 SSD read-write performance is very impressive, including continuous read speed of 2416MB/s, continuous write speed of 2240MB/s, 4K random read speed of 69.27MB/s, 4K random write speed of 115.7MB/s, performance has reached the current solid-state disk frontier level, can be very fast data transmission.
LPDDR4X 4266Mhz memory performance is also impressive, its read speed is 57477MB/s, write speed is 65964MB/s, copy data is 63004MB/s, high-performance memory is conducive to the Lenovo YOGA 13S multi-process tasks.
The range of the Lenovo YOGA 13S is also quite durable. It has a 50Wh large-capacity battery, and we used PCMark8 working mode for battery life test. The heat dissipation mode is on in the energy-saving mode, and the battery setting is the longest battery life. The screen brightness is 50%, and its final performance is 4 hours and 45 minutes, which can meet the needs of going out.
Lenovo YOGA 13S also has a strong cooling system, it has a dual fan cooling system, coupled with a large area of fins and double layer of graphite fins, can let the body always stay calm. Lenovo YOGA 13s has no unique light originally said, we have a single copy of the processor, observe the temperature of C surface, the average temperature is about 35℃, which shows its strong heat dissipation ability. In the process of single copy, the CPU power is always stable at about 26W, the frequency is about 3.4ghz, and the CPU performance is released steadily.
The appearance of the texture of detail is very worthy of careful observation
In terms of appearance, the Lenovo YOGA 13S appears very simple and elegant. The overall color of the fuselage is dominated by deep space gray, which looks very cool and full of scientific and technological sense. The body is made of aluminum alloy, which is not only very strong, but also extremely thin and light. The weight of the whole body is about 2.62lbs. The body of Lenovo YOGA 13S adopts the new Unibody Stamping 4.0 technology, and has been forged through more than 20 complex processes, which enables the body to have a fine matte touch.
The Lenovo YOGA 13S also has an excellent screen. The screen size is 13.3 inches, the resolution is 2560×1080, using the narrow border of the current mainstream, the screen proportion is as high as 91%, brightness is as high as 300 nits, the screen display effect is not only extremely delicate, but also very broad field of vision. The Lenovo YOGA 13S screen also has 100% sRGB coverage, making the color restoration very realistic. The Lenovo YOGA 13S still has a 16:10 screen ratio, which allows it to hold more information than a traditional 16:9 screen, making it easy to browse the Web, to type, and more.
The Lenovo YOGA 13S has a very light and portable body, but the keyboard input experience is not discounted. In the key process to further optimize, can be a two-stage bounce back. The feedback experience is also powerful, which is very suitable for text workers. The keyboard also supports four – shift adjustable backlighting. Lenovo YOGA 13S support Fn+Q key combination, which quickly opens beast mode and allows performance get greater release. The Lenovo YOGA 13S trackpad is an integrated design with a large area for smooth use of different gestures.
On the interface side, the Lenovo YOGA 13S has three Type-C ports and a 0.14inch headphone jack, including two Thunderbolt 4 ports on the left, with a transmission rate of up to 40Gbps. It can support output of 2 4K monitors and 1 8K monitor. It also supports PD charging, which can charge up to 80% in one hour. Can take in addition can also be external docking station, further enhance the computer graphics processing performance.
There are some other details of the Lenovo YOGA 13S that shouldn’t be overlooked. It supports The Dolby Vision plus Dolby Panoramic sound, for you to open the sound of nature audio-visual experience. Equipped with lightning activated face recognition 2.0 system, not only faster recognition, but also more secure.
Write in the last
The Lenovo YOGA 13S supported by the core processor of the 11th generation did not disappoint us, the new 10 nanometer manufacturing process, the performance of the processor has made a great leap forward, especially the core display performance is more impressive which can meet our requirements for productivity tools. In addition, the Lenovo YOGA 13S body workmanship, screen quality, input experience, expansion also maintain the YOGA series first-class level. If you want to be the first to experience a decade core processor, the Lenovo YOGA 13S is a great product to buy.
