Intel draws flak after misleading, lopsided gaming laptop comparison


Intel has recently launched the “Partner Connect” where the company showed some slides aimed at convincing its “partners” about the superiority of Intel-powered laptops in gaming in comparison to its AMD counterparts.

A user by the name of AdoredTV leaked some of those slides, giving light to an underhanded tactic that Intel employed to gain the confidence of its audiences.

With a theme that centered around the notion of “superior gaming performance” at a lower price, Intel demonstrated how the notion seems to be “true,” based on available data—particularly a supposedly impressive 18 to 22 percent advantage over competing product.

But while would had been fantastic, it seems that the products that Intel used for the comparison are not necessarily of the same scale, primarily boiling down to the kind of GPU used in both laptops.

The ROG Zephyrus G14, which is powered by an AMD CPU, has the Nvidia RTX 2060 Max-Q that runs on 65W whereas the MSI GL65 Leopard, which is powered by Intel, has the similar GPU, only at 90W. 

Individuals who have at least the basic understanding on the relationship between wattage and performance would know that the 25W difference in the compared products is a major potential difference between normal clocking and overclocking.


And that was only speaking on the GPU front. Looking further into the details and one would easily spot that the AMD-powered laptop used in the comparison is also significantly underpowered in another aspect as well, the CPU. 

The Ryzen 4900HS runs on 35W while the Intel Core i7-10750H draws 45W. Again, a major difference in power supply that substantially translates to performance boost on higher numbers.
