Advantages compared to the previous generation
The first generation Rockbook X550 predecessor was equipped with processors from the “Whiskey Lake” series. In summary, the new processors offer some improvements compared to the older Intel Core i5-8250U and Intel Core i7-8550U processors:
One of the main advantages of the 11th generation Intel Core processors is higher performance. These processors are able to process more tasks faster, which is beneficial for users who spend a lot of time running applications that depend on CPU performance, such as video and image editing or running graphics applications.
Another important advantage is the improved integrated graphics unit (Intel Iris Xe Graphics). This graphics unit offers better performance when running graphics applications and playing games. Users who choose one of the Rockbook models equipped with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 or Intel Core i7-1165G7 can therefore be sure to get reliable performance when running graphics applications.
The 11th generation Intel Core processors also support faster DDR4 and LPDDR4x memory speeds, which can help improve system performance. Additionally, these processors feature improved power management technologies that optimize performance with lower power consumption. This can be especially beneficial for portable device users by enabling longer battery life.
Our new Rockbook X130 is already equipped with a Thunderbolt 4 interface.
Overall, the Intel Core i5-1135G7 and Intel Core i7-1165G7 offer better performance, graphics performance and power efficiency compared to the older Intel Core i5-8250U and Intel Core i7-8550U, as well as support for faster memory speeds and Thunderbolt 4, making them suitable for applications that require high performance and graphics power, such as editing videos, playing games and running graphics applications.
In summary, the Rockbook X130, X540 and X550 G2 notebooks with Intel Core i5-1135G7 and Intel Core i7-1165G7 processors offer excellent performance and graphics power suitable for running demanding applications such as video and image editing, CAD applications or database applications. They also feature improved power management that provide longer battery life for portable devices.
