Hard disk test
In the memory test, using CrystalDiskMark to measure PCIe3.0 SSD, at a continuous speed, read 3479.83MB/s, write 3151.86MB/s; at 4K random speed, read 74.94 MB/s, write 390.54MB/s s. This kind of performance belongs to the level of high-end PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD, but the performance in 4K random read and write is exceptionally good.
Baking machine test
1. Single-baked CPU
We use AIDA64 for FPU baking. The temperature of Core i7-12650H is 97°C and the power is around 71W.
2. Single-baked GPU
We use FurMark, commonly known as “donut”, to conduct a 10-minute baking test for the RTX 3060, with the resolution set to 1920×1080. After 10 minutes, the power consumption of the graphics card is stable at 131.5W.
At this time, the maximum GPU frequency is 1470MHz, the maximum memory frequency is 1750.2MHz, and the temperature is 79.5 degrees Celsius.
3. Double oven
Use Furmark to make the CPU and GPU fully loaded at the same time for a double-copy test. After 10 minutes, the CPU power consumption is 43W. At this time, the temperature is 79°C, and the highest temperature reaches 98°C. The GPU power consumption is 130.2W, the temperature is 81.3°C, and the frequency is 1432MHz. .
That is to say, after double baking for 10 minutes, the total power at this time is about 173W.
4. Endurance test
The Redmi G Pro Core Edition has a built-in battery with a capacity of 80Wh. Next, we will test the battery life of this gaming notebook. The scene selected for the test is the modern office of PCMark 10. We adjusted the power supply to the “best energy efficiency” mode, adjusted the notebook to the precision mode, closed all irrelevant processes during the test, and adjusted the screen brightness to 50%. Using the integrated graphics card of the CPU for testing, the battery life of the PCMark 10 test is 3 hours and 45 minutes.
This Redmi G Pro gaming notebook equipped with a Core i7-12650H processor + RTX 3060 independent display combination, in terms of hardware specifications alone, can fully meet the needs of mainstream and even high-end gamers, coupled with strong cooling capabilities And a high-quality screen, so that the experience of the whole machine to a higher level. After our comprehensive testing of the Redmi G Pro gaming notebook, we made the following conclusions:
The combined configuration of Core i7-12650H+RTX 3060, in the game book with less than 7,000 yuan gear, the performance release is naturally nothing to say. In various large-scale game tests, Redmi G Pro has passed the test, and all games can run smoothly at high resolutions. The average frame rate of the game “Horizon: Zero Dawn” in ultimate quality can exceed 100FPS, reaching 105FPS.
2. Power consumption and heat dissipation
In the CPU baking machine, the power consumption is stable at 71W, and the temperature is controlled at 97 degrees Celsius; the GPU single baking reaches 131.5W, and the temperature is only 79 degrees Celsius. Under CPU+GPU dual-baking, the CPU heat generation is not much different from single-baking at this time, and the GPU can still run at full load, and the power consumption of the whole machine can reach up to 173W. This is enough to prove the excellent cooling capacity of the new Hurricane cooling system.
After the overall experience, the comprehensive strength of the Redmi G Pro is quite good. The i7-12650H can be called a CPU tailored for mainstream gamers. Coupled with the classic graphics card of less than RTX 3060 and affordable price, it can be said that it is the most popular among mainstream gaming notebooks. Very cost-effective. The current official price of the Redmi G Pro gaming notebook is 6,599 yuan. Among the gaming notebooks with the same configuration, it is very cost-effective, and interested players can go for it.
