Like a prize fight weigh-in, the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U in Lenovoâ€™s IdeaPad Slim 7 just flexed like no other ultrabook CPU weâ€™ve ever seen.
Itâ€™s almost as though the Ryzen 7 4800U snatched the mic from the podium and started hurling insults at Intelâ€™s upcoming Tiger Lake CPU. If there was a folding chair, weâ€™re sure it would been thrown at Intelâ€™s entourage while the flash bulbs popped.
While weâ€™re still in the process of finishing our testing, the early results weâ€™re seeing are gobsmackingly impressive. How impressive? When we started hunting in our spreadsheet for how other laptops performed against the IdeaPad Slim 7â€™s results, we kept scrolling, and scrolling, and scrolling to find something comparable. At that point, any hardware reviewer worth his or her salt questions whether theyâ€™re â€œdoing it wrong.â€� Did I run the wrong test? Am I in the wrong row? Do I need more coffee?
