Woot only 5 hours of battery life? What is Eve implementing to bump that up to 9 to 12 hrs, aside from the larger battery?
To sum up the Vod, for gaming purposes m3 will be giving you around 20~25 avg fps for some older titles, but may drop down to single digits for the more demanding AAA titles. As for lighter games, ex. LOL and CS:GO, you’d be seeing about 40ish Avg fps during the actual gameplay. Temp wise, it runs around 70~78, I don’t think thermal throttling might be an issue here, but hey lower is always better.
As it shown near the end it’s turbo boost power max was at 7W and turbo boost short power boost was at 15W for the most of the review. Adjusting the Trubo boost to 10W and 18W for turbo short boost, it bump the fps up by about 10%, increasing 1 to 2 fps, while raising the temp up to 85+.
In conclusion, playable, but not ideal.
While i7 maxes at 3.6g, i5 at 3.3g and m3 at 2.6g at max, might it be safe to assume around 15% to 20% increase in performance for i5 relative to the m3?
