    I can't believe there hasn't been a single review yet with some good benchmarks.

    Yup, I've been checking youtube and google daily. :) Currently have a giant Asus ROG G752 laptop for work and I'm sick of lugging that giant monstrosity around.

    On a side note, I found that you can use code KC5SP0CT1 on the dutch HP store for extra 50€ off.

    and it got quite toasty at max as I thought it would. I just wanted to make sure the Vega would kick in

    What was the CPU power? That section is collapsed in HWMonitor.

    Thanks,

    and some throttling as I assumed there would be with high temps

    -50.8 undervolt stopped the throttling. I'll try some more tomorrow and see how low I can get it.

    I couldn't stop trying. A -100.6 undervolt in throttlestop brought the temps from 98c to 88c. I have it on my cooling pad for the first time now and it's staying about 38c while I'm here typing. And now I'm done for the day.

    Hi. I was looking to buy this. Can you please do some CPU related benchmarks like Cinebench to compare it to 8550U?

    Also, is the Toshiba SSD fast enough? Does it compare to the Samsung SSDs?

    Thanks in advance.

    Wow, that's great, 10c drop in thermals, stopping thermal throttling, simply by a software tweak, undervolting by -100mV :)

    Maybe there is a little more in the tank, it's a new CPU so it's an unknown, but other recent CPU's have undervolted regularly into the -150mV and more range.

    Pretty cool :)
