Gemini Lake Refresh Models & Where Is Elkhart Lake?

The BMAX Y11 an 11-inch convertible Windows 10 laptop and the 13″ BMAX Y13 the best Gemini Lake laptop I’ve reviewed are now shipping with the new Celeron N4120 “Gemini Lake Refresh” over at Banggood. This minor tweak of the Gemini Lake Celeron N4100 is now approximately 10% faster due to an overclock of 200Mhz more on the max boost clock. So 2.6Ghz max clocks Vs the 2.4Ghz...[Read More]

Xiaomi Redmibook 13 Hands-On Review (New 2020 Model)

In the studio today I received the Redmibook 13. This is the new 2020 model. It was launched right at the end of December with the Redmi K30 land only starting shipping last week. The model I imported here is the Intel 10th Gen “Comet Lake” Core i7 10510U top-spec model, my reasoning behind this is if the thermals are fine with the higher clocks (4.9Ghz max) then the Core i5 will also ...[Read More]

BMAX S15 First Look – $254.99 But Bezels Are Nothing Like The Press Images!

The BMAX S15 is here and I’ve had a bit of time now using it here are the first impressions so far. Now if you were one of those lucky ones that got it for $199.99 USD or about 170 Euros it’s a great deal at that price but not perfect. The BMX S15 has the Celeron N4100 (Gemini Lake) with 8GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM (Confirmed) and 128GB upgradable M.2 SSD. Intel’s wireless AC 94...[Read More]

Hands-On With The Teclast F6 Plus (Updated)

Update the full video review has been posted on Youtube: The last of the Gemini Lake laptops I’ll be reviewing, the BMAX S15 and the Teclast F6 Plus which arrived a few days ago. So far this laptop is just as expected, it is one of the better ones reviewed but to me still doesn’t beat the BAMX Y13 which is very similar with a 360-degree touchscreen. The Teclast has a 13.3″ screen...[Read More]

Intel 9th Gen CPUs + Nvidia GTX 1650 Upgradable Mini PC

An interesting new release on Aliexpress I’ve spotted looking for the next best powerful Mini PC out of China to review. It’s a small custom PC and motherboard with an upgradeable socket 1151 CPU slot & GPU slot. Yes! The last mini PCs I reviewed that were well-received were the Core i7 8750H ones which while very good, quiet and powerful for the size suffered from two things: No d...[Read More]

Chuwi Hi10 X – 10.1″ Gemini Lake Windows 10 Tablet

Chuwi has a new release coming, the Hi10 X. It’s similar to their old Hi10 models it looks like a rehash of old and new. 10.1″ 1920 x 1200 fully laminated IPS screen with H3 stylus support. Powered by the Gemini Lake (No new Intel chips yet!) with only 6GB of DDR4 RAM and 128GB eMMC. 8GB of DDR4 would have been better of course and the tablet has a full metal unibody build. Two Type-C ...[Read More]

Happy New Year & What’s Next

Happy New Year to everyone. So a few have been asking if I have the BMAX S15 and the F6 Plus ordered, yes both are on the way and they will definitely be the last Gemini Lake laptops I’ll be reviewing. Some time in Q1/Q2 we should hear or see even the new Gemini Lake successor the Intel Elkhart Lake by then. Expect it to be a small bump up in performance like the Apollo Lake to Gemini Lake w...[Read More]
