1GHZ processor huh? This thing got a raspberry pi Zero inside of it?
I mean, turbo to 3.6 isn’t too bad.
current cpubenchmark for this cpu is 7800.
current cpubenchmark for the pi4 cpu is 780.
ghz stopped being an important number a few years ago.
that said, I’m not saying this is an awesome deal.
just that the landscape of cpu comparisons got difficult.
oh, well… actually i think the base clock for this cpu is 1ghz. which for sure seems low, but good turbo and reasonable architecture trumps base clock. 15W TDP is pretty crazy low (low heat etc).
r5 3600 has a cpubenchmark of 17000+ and a current sale price of about $290.
msrp of the cpu in this laptop is near 300 as well (but the whole laptop is on sale for what, 350?
anyway, i get your point, 1gz seems absurd, but it’s actually correct.
This system has a Passmark of 7810. That is quite respectable. 1GHz, as said above, is likely the “idle” frequency where the system isn’t doing much. DO NOT USE THE CLOCK SPEED AS AN INDICATOR OF PERFORMANCE. If you do, a Pentium 4 running at 4GHz would be faster than this system. (Hint: It is not.) Use a site like Passmark to give you a realistic benchmark of what the processor is capable of. Here is the Passmark link for this laptop’s processor: PassMark - Intel Core i5-1035G1 @ 1.00GHz - Price performance comparison
Anyone know if this laptop includes a charger? Wattage? How about any warranty? Sorry for my dumb questions but in need and can’t afford to come up short!!! Many thanks to all!!
IMHO The 1Ghz doesn’t bother me as much as it being a G1… Intel naming scheme has the graphics capabilities going from G1(lowest) to G7 (best) as this doesn’t have a discrete video card I’d prefer a G7 for anything more then an office suite and email computer.
Yes, it includes a charger and it comes with a 90-day limited warranty. Not sure on the wattage, though.
