Intel recently released their 8th generation of mobile Kaby Lake R CPUs, in this video I want to compare the features and performance differences between the newer 8550U and 7700HQ laptop chips with a series of benchmarks to find out which you should consider in your new laptop, or 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 limited, as we’re only testing built in graphics.
Check pricing and reviews of other laptops with these CPUs:
