My first benchmarks with the i7-7y75:
Balanced Performance Bios Setting (Default):
PCMark10 2936, 2954
CinebenchR15 GPU 32.47
CinebenchR15 MultiCPU 241, 233
CinebenchR15 SingleCPU 123
Max Performance Bios Setting:
PCMark10 2786, 2802
CinebenchR15 GPU 32.26, 34.28, 31.59
CinebenchR15 MultiCPU 237, 226
CinebenchR15 SingleCPU 127, 125
Blank out of the box plugged-in V, latest Windows updates, disabled antivirus, standard drivers. Can’t say why the max performance setting is actually worse than the balanced one. Can’t say I’m super exited about these results, either. However, V feels fast enough so far.
I’ll update as far as I get new stuff, but it seems I can validate the test by notebookcheck (https://www.notebookcheck.net/Eve-V-m3-i5-i7-Convertible-Review.264092.0.html)
What impresses me most is that you don’t hear anything - at least most of the time. Interestingly, while Cinebench OpenGL test loads (at the very beginning, some images are fading), you can hear something ^^ Same when you boot up. However, I wouldn’t say it is coil whine (it is not a high pitching tone). Checked again, sound is also appearing when opening Edge for example.
It seems that this sound is coming from the USC-C power cable when it is plugged in (at the side of the V). I guess somehow, the V needs more power and fetches is then over the cable? After I removed the cable, the sound is gone Same with both ports (USB-C and TB3).
What I also experience is a kind of “prickling” or “tingling” when moving your fingers over the back of the V as long as it is plugged in. Have the same problem with the body of the HP Spectre x360 (old version) when I use a cheap charger without the grounding.
