Performance

1.CPU speed

8 x 3.8GHz

4 x 1.9GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

16GB

2GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.Can connect to an external drive
Microsoft Xbox Series X
Nvidia Shield
You can easily connect an external hard drive via USB if you need more space.
4.internal storage

1000GB

16GB

The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.resolution

7680 x 4320px

1280 x 720px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
6.uses multithreading
Microsoft Xbox Series X
Nvidia Shield
Multithreading technology (such as Intel's Hyperthreading or AMD's Simultaneous Multithreading) provides increased performance by splitting each of the processor's physical cores into virtual cores, also known as threads. This way, each core can run two instruction streams at once.

General info

1.Is region free
Microsoft Xbox Series X
Nvidia Shield
Region free devices allow you to play games from different continents. This enables you to collect a larger game library, and you could play games before they are released in your region.
2.thickness

151mm

57mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.width

151mm

158mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.Has an internal power supply
Microsoft Xbox Series X
Nvidia Shield
Devices with an internal power supply are desirable as they don't require a large external "power brick" on the cable. It’s more aesthetically pleasing and an advantage if you have limited space.
5.height

301mm

135mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.weight

4.45kg

579g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
