Intel recently released their 8th generation U series of mobile Kaby Lake R CPUs, in this video I want to compare the features and performance differences between the newer 8550U and 6700HQ laptop chips with a series of benchmarks to find out if it’s worth upgrading to.
Benchmarks I’ve tested include:
VeraCrypt (AES encryption/decryption)
Handbrake (transcode 4K to 1080p, and 1080p to 720p)
Gaming tests were not included, as the 6700HQ laptop had Nvidia graphics while the Dell XPS 13 only had the integrated graphics.
Check pricing and reviews of other laptops with these CPUs:
