Hardware & Performance

Less than a month after the launch of the 10th generation Intel Core processor mobile version, the thin and light notebooks of all major brands are ready to go, and the RedmiBook 14 enhanced version is the first notebook with 10 generations of Core processor. For those who want to experience new products in the first place, it is an excellent opportunity, not only exciting but also happy.

Intel officially announced the 10nm process, codenamed Ice Lake’s 10th generation Core processor at the Taipei Computer Show at the end of May this year. However, only system-level features and specifications were disclosed at the time, and there were no specific product models and parameters. At the beginning of August, Intel officially released as many as 10th generation Core processors, designed for thin and light notebooks, including the low-power U series and the ultra-low-power Y series. The Comet Lake architecture and 14nm++ process processor will be the first to be seen as the forerunner of the 10th generation Core, and then launch the 10nm, Ice Lake architecture. The 10th generation Core processor is the first chance in the label. The blue sticker was replaced with a flat design of technology silver, and there are CORE i3/i5/i7 and 10 generation logo on the label.

In addition, the 10th generation Core has also changed a lot in the naming rules. There is no more popular here. You can see that the five-digit segment at the beginning of 10 is the 10th generation processor. We are still returning to this new RedmiBook 14 enhanced version. And Intel Core i5-10210U. Specific parameters, the 10th generation Intel Core i5-10210U uses 14nm++ technology Comet Lake architecture, 4 cores, and 8 threads, frequency 1.60GHz-3.40GHz, maximum core frequency 4.20GHz, 3MB cache 8MB, built-in Intel UHD Graphics graphics card, TDP15W, supports DirectX12.

This processor is basically the same as the previous generation i5-8265U. In addition to the architecture changes, the third-level cache is increased to 8MB, the frequency is also improved, and the integrated graphics have also changed, which means that the UHD graphics card no longer involves digital models.

In addition, in terms of memory support, the Core i5-10210U can support the DDR4-2666 specification. Next, let me take a look at the performance of this 10th generation Intel Core i5-10210U processor. Fritz Chess Benchmark is a software that tests the multi-core processing power of a processor. The test method mainly depends on how many steps the computer can take in one second. The Intel Core i5-10210U has 4 cores and 8 threads, and the final score is 13636. The multicore score is 20% higher than the i5-8265U.

Cinebench R15 is also a test software performance software, in this software, Intel Core i5-10210U multi-core performance scores reached 736cb, compared with i5-8265U has 10% + performance improvement. The Cinebench R20 is the latest version that gives you more power in the processor, but the results are not directly comparable or converted to Cinebench R15. The R20’s final multi-core mission score is 1607cb and the single-core mission is 427cb. Overall performance is significantly improved compared to the previous generation.

The launch of the 10th generation Intel Core processor makes the performance of the thin and light version more powerful in the multi-tasking mode, and also makes the thin and light notebooks renew their vitality. The launch of the new mobile processor also makes Intel no longer squeeze the toothpaste. And continue to lead in the mobile PC camp.

Graphics card

The RedmiBook 14 enhanced notebook comes standard with the GeForce MX250. It is consistent with the previous generation. It is also a high-end and light-weight notebook. The specific parameters of the MX250 graphics card will not be described. After all, he has introduced a long time. For a while, a cost-effective graphics card that stood the test. This time we chose the professional mode test in 3DMARK 11 and the final score of P4918, it can be seen that the combination of the ten generation processor + MX250 also played a powerful performance.

In addition, in the latest version of the 3DMARK advanced version, we mainly tested Fire Strike and Ice Storm Extreme, and the final scores were 3461 and 59919 so that the impressive results can comprehensively evaluate this notebook, especially the graphics card. Performance. This achievement also means that the RedmiBook 14 Plus notebook has enough confidence and assurance in dealing with daily work and entertainment. With the 10th generation Core processor blessing, and the MX250 discrete graphics, is there any improvement in-game performance?

Next, let’s take a look at the League of Legends that everyone is most familiar with most often. At the beginning of the game, it is still relatively smooth, man-machine mode, 1080P full screen, medium quality.

During the game, the number of common frames is 100-110 FPS, the processor resources occupy 30%, the temperature is 72°, the graphics card resources occupy 56%, and the temperature is 64°. The game runs smoothly and the picture quality is clear. Compared with the previous generation i5 8265U+MX250 combination, the overall experience is slightly improved. For the i5-10210U, which is positioned on the mobile office platform, this performance is also good.

RAM

In terms of memory and hard disk, RedmiBook 14 enhanced version is basically the same as the previous generation. Single-channel 8GB DDR4 memory, 256/512GB solid-state hard disk, although it is good in terms of capacity, but single channel memory and SATA interface solid-state hard disk, obviously Pulling down the grade, fortunately, the performance of the test and experience is quite good in terms of the configuration, and there is no pressure on daily office and entertainment.

Using the AIDA64 memory test, the read speed is 18823 MB/s, the write speed is 19081 MB/s, and the delay is 90.6 ns. We evaluated this product, the hard disk is Samsung PM871b, M.2 SATA protocol interface, flash type 3D-NAND TLC, standard read and write speed 540/500 MB/s, is a lot of light and thin, a higher cost performance Storage solution. The hard disk has a sequential read speed of 550 MB/s and a write speed of 529 MB/s, which exceeds the nominal parameters. So we see that RedmiBook 14 is configured on the principle of super cost-effective so that users can save budgets that should not be wasted when they are enough.

Cooling and battery life

The power consumption of the 10th generation Core i5-10210U processor is 15W, so there is no need to change the cooling solution. It can also be seen by disassembling. The RedmiBook 14 enhanced version uses a larger diameter cooling fan and the heat pipe from the CPU. The integrated connection to the graphics card, the wide diameter, short distance, and the rear cooling hole design, the machine has excellent performance in heat dissipation, for example, in a long time, multi-tasking working mode, the whole machine can still keep smooth Use.

The AIDA64 oven is very stable in 20 minutes, with 100% processor utilization, but the temperature is always below 70°. After that, the notebook is detected by a thermal imager, and the maximum temperature of the C surface is 51.4°, which is located at the rear heat dissipation port, and the keyboard area is basically unaffected. The bottom temperature is 54.5°, which is also the area of ​​the CPU. It is perfectly covered by the ventilation grid of the bottom 4 areas.

In terms of battery life, RedmiBook 14 Plus has a built-in 48Wh, 3220mAh lithium-ion battery. The test conditions are to turn off the wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, the screen brightness is 25%, and the display is still clearly visible. The battery usage mode is the power saving mode, and the remaining time is displayed from the battery icon for about 9 hours and 35 minutes.

Running PCMARK Work mode, continuous operation finally achieves 9 hours and 31 minutes of battery life. At this time, the remaining 19% of the notebook is not turned off, and the battery prompt can also be used for 2 hours and 26 minutes, so the lifetime of this notebook is more than 10 hours is safe. After reading the evaluation performance of RedmiBook 14 enhanced hardware performance, is it full of passion?
