Top specs and features

General info

1.GPU clock speed

600MHz (ARM Mali T628 MP6 (600MHz))

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Best

AMD Ryzen 7 2800H

1300MHz

2.Has integrated graphics
Samsung Exynos 5430

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

3.semiconductor size

20nm

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

Best

Apple A12X Bionic

7nm

4.DirectX version

11 (ARM Mali T628 MP6 (600MHz))

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.

Best

AMD Ryzen 3 3300U

12

5.OpenGL ES version

3 (ARM Mali T628 MP6 (600MHz))

OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.

Best

Qualcomm Snapdragon 439

3.2

6.OpenCL version

1.1 (ARM Mali T628 MP6 (600MHz))

Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.

Best

AMD Ryzen 3 3300U

2.2

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 2GHz & 4 x 1.4GHz

Best

MediaTek Helio X30

2 x 2.6 & 4 x 2.2 & 4 x 1.9GHz

2.CPU threads

8

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

Best

Intel Core i7-8700B

3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Samsung Exynos 5430

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.

4.Uses HMP
Samsung Exynos 5430

Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilise all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.

5.L2 cache

2MB

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.

Best

MediaTek MT6592M

8.1MB

6.L2 core

0.5MB/core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.

Best

Intel Celeron N3350

1MB/core

Memory

1.RAM speed

2133MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.

Best

AMD Ryzen 7 2800H

3200MHz

2.maximum memory bandwidth

17GB/s

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.

Best

AMD Ryzen 7 2800H

47.68GB/s

3.memory channels

2

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.

Best

Qualcomm Snapdragon 845

3.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Samsung Exynos 5430

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.

4.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Samsung Exynos 5430

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.

5.Has NX bit
Samsung Exynos 5430

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.

6.Has TrustZone
Samsung Exynos 5430

A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).

Miscellaneous

1.floating-point performance

0.1TFLOPS (ARM Mali T628 MP6 (600MHz))

Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.

Best

MediaTek MTK6752

0.81TFLOPS
