CPU Performance

We have picked a handful of our CPU tests to give a sense of the overall performance of the system. As this is a Picasso based APU, it is built on the Zen+ microarchitecture, and it is expected to perform accordingly.

AI Benchmark (ETH) Combined

In our new AI benchmark test, here is the data for Inference and Training combined. This is a test which likes cores, but also the Zen 2 parts do really well here. The Magicbook sits above a first generation Ryzen mobile processors, as well as above the Core i7 in the Matebook Pro X.

WinRAR 5.60b3

WinRAR is a test that likes memory bandwidth, and unfortunately this is one of the downsides of using that older Picasso platform - DDR4-2400 memory speeds aren't that great in the grand scheme of things.

Geekbench 4 - ST OverallGeekbench 4 - MT Overall

For GeekBench synthetics, we see a small lead over the first generation Ryzen parts in ST, which grows in MT. Still a bit far behind the i7-8550U, however.

Dwarf Fortress (Small) 65x65 World, 250 Years

Dwarf Fortress is another one of our new benchmarks, which mainly focuses on single core performance.  As is perhaps to be expected, the Zen+ processor doesn't go well here, limited by its cTDP down mode which restricts the higher frequencies that the other CPUs are able to reach.

Cinebench R20 Multi-Threaded

Crysis CPU Render: (6) 1920x1080

Two rendering tests to finish, and we have the R5 3500U ahead of the i7-8550U in both comparisons.

    Products like this should not exist, this is a burden copy and paste from a Macbook, even the name, this is outrageous, where are the international copyright laws when it is needed? I always have had Anandtech in high regard, a review like this, giving press time to its audience in the free world to this peace of plagiarism makes me wonder, uhmm it makes me wonder... Reply

    You can't copyright a generic design such as the Macbook design. It is iconic, yes, but not copyright-able. Stop spewing meaningless words such as "international copyright laws" when you have no idea how they work or what stuff can it be applied to Reply

    Good products like this should not exist for you. You’re screaming hysterically about some design that might looks like one of your company products. Are you sure this laptop is exactly identical to the macbook? You’re screaming outrageous, wtf? You’re lame. Everyone knows China invented money and you’re using it in your daily live. You should wonder if you need more meds. Reply

    How much of that money they invented does China pay you to flame everyone that says something mean about them, anyways? Reply

    Do you want to know if your god apple ever steal designs from the Chinese? Check Wikipedia or gsmarena for Chinese phones that released months before the iPhones that had the same designs.

    You are the baddest thief that crys victim.
