HP Envy x360 15 (W/ Core i7-7500U & GTX 940MX Review)

CINEBENCH R15 is a cross-platform testing suite that measures hardware performance and is the de facto standard benchmarking tool for leading companies and trade journals for conducting real-world hardware performance tests. With the new Release 15, systems with up to 256 threads can be tested.

CINEBENCH is available for both Windows and OS X and is used by almost all hardware manufacturers and trade journals for comparing CPUs and graphics cards.


The dual-core, Hyper-Threaded and low-power processor is a solid piece of silicon. Its Cinebench score of 330cb is decent for a slim machine like this, and we never noticed any sort of delay when navigating the HP for our various tests. It’s got enough power for general-purpose computing, Office applications and the sort of creative tools that will use the Envy’s stylus.

The chip does suffer due to its low-power design, though. There’s not enough power here for the most demanding work software, and the dual-core design means the CPU’s single-core score is about half the speed of the multi-core result. A proper quad-core chip would deliver a bigger gap between those two results.

Intel is deeply excited about their imminent 11th Gen. Tiger Lake mobile CPU which is due to go on sale at the end of September. We know this because Intel sent us a sample of Tiger Lake in an MSI laptop so we could take a good look for ourselves and also share the benchmark results with our KitGuru audience.
