Our review unit of the ThinkPad X1 Yoga has the following specifications:
Processor: Intel Core i5-6200U Processor (3MB Cache, up to 2.80GHz)
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 520
Memory: 8GB LPDDR3 SDRAM 1866 MB
Hard Drive: 256 GB Solid State Drive, SATA3 OPAL2.0 – Capable
We will be running a few different benchmarks to gauge system performance. First up we have PCMark 8. We concentrate on the Home, Work, and Creative benchmarks. Each benchmark is run on the “conventional” setting.
Next we have Geekbench 3. Geekbench 3 is Primate Labs’ cross-platform processor benchmark, with a new scoring system that separates single-core and multi-core performance, and new workloads that simulate real-world scenarios.
CINEBENCH uses a test scenario that makes use of all of your system’s processing power to render a photorealistic 3D scene (from the viral “No Keyframes” animation by AixSponza). This scene makes use of various algorithms to stress all available processor cores. Higher scores are better here.
Finally we used CrystalDiskMark to test the speeds of the hard drive. Our drive is a 256 GB M.2 SATA solid state drive.
